“I thought the US system was supposed to be managed capitalism, at least since FDR. "
As Homer Simpson said to Marge when she informed him, “Earl Warren was never a stripper!”, “Now who’s being naive?”
Jimmy Thudpucker… now there’s a name I’ve not heard in a long time.
I had no idea Thatababy was based on Stephan Pastis’ childhood.
“How obviously and unashamedly evil do they have to be before people stop voting for them?”
Trump could grow a mustache and twirl it whilst tying sweet Polly Pureheart to the railroad tracks to force her to turn over the deed to her family’s farm so he could build Mar-a-lago West, and he’d only lose about half a percentage point overall.
It might actually gain him some support in some quarters once it’s revealed that Polly’s great grandfather voted for FDR in 1944, not long before losing a leg during the Battle of the Bulge, thus qualifying Snidely Trumplash’s scheme as “owning the libs”.

You see, my real name is the same as a notable comics artist. As an active commenter on comics, I’d often get asked if I was him. (I like to say if I had a dollar for every time I’ve been asked I am him, I could afford to commission a nice drawing from him.) Since this was well before the days of universal internet access, the rule of thumb was that if someone had the same name as a comics writer, it was the writer. But if someone had the same name as a comics artist, it was not the artist. My name was one of the examples given.
All of the above.
I can’t decide what the “all downhill from there” point for UseNet was — either the “Green Card Lawyers” or the “perpetual September” when AoL users got access.
