    Oh, that’s not just a little sexist. It’s “the dreaded pantsuit” and not the “dreaded Senator” or “dreaded Secretary of State” or “dreaded Wal*Mart Director” or “dreaded children’s advocate.”

    No, with women it’s all about the clothes.

    What the hell happened to you, Oliphant?

    But, but, the establishment Republicans are such gems… You got your ChickenHawks Bush and Cheney, Willard the ChickenHawk, Ricks Santorum and Perry, and the Town Crier. Oh, and Mitch McConnell who filibusters his own proposals.-How could any party not be satisfied with a crew like that?

    Although I’m not a tea partier myself I don’t mind the tea party’s actions within the Republican party. What it does is get Republicans talking about policy and political accountability. I’d much rather have that then have a bunch of empty suits saying whatever they think is necessary to keep their power.

    Delusional thinking there. I think the voters would do what they did to Democrats in Nevada last week: Choose “None of the above” and leave the office vacant… Not that putting Hillary in there would be much different… she’s vacant too.

    Mrs. Clinton has upped her status after being Sec of State. However, with a do nothing Congress, she won’t have an easy way of it. Tip O’Neill is churning in his grave at the “do-nothing ness” of Congress. Compromise is not a dirty word but the Tea Party is will not do it.

    Unless Elizabeth takes a run, I will vote for Hillary, with some misgivings, because I could not tolerate another administration under Wall Street,… er, I mean Republican rule. ps: This ’toon is beneath you, Ollie!

    Two Adams (father and son), two Roosevelt’s (cousins), two Bush’s (father and son, minor and major disasters!), we do NOT actually need two Clinton’s (spouses). While I don’t want to see Hillary run, she stands head and shoulders above anyone the Republicans are considering, and don’t even think about how far down the septic tank another Bush would push us.

    When CANTOR is considered too “liberal”?? the only word appropriate is N-U-T-S!!

    “Only thing more pathetic than an empty suit is a woman playing an empty suit.”So you’re saying she’s more pathetic than the average empty suite because she’s a woman?

    I said to a friend the other day that the Tea Party started essentially as a Libertarian movement; being a Libertarian the friend quickly distanced himself – so many crazies have jumped on the train, many Libertarians have been forced to jump off.

    With the Republicans all 40 points behind Hillary, the Democrats actually can choose just about anyone to defeat them. I choose Elizabeth Warren, and I’m willing to bet that as she becomes better known a lot more people are going to choose her.
