Leave his Slurpee alone

You know how much I love Mark Knoller and his geeky stats fixation. He keeps track of everything including how many times Obama evoked Slurpee sipping. It's nearly supplanted his fixation on the Obamas trashing tater tots.

I suspect he enjoys that frozen confection himself now and again, perhaps with a big old plate of tater tots on the side. On one level it's kind of sad that this election has been so substance free that Mark has the room to indulge a piece like this, but have to love a guy who will use his national forum to defend his (presuambly) favorite foods.

This being Global Works Day, I'd happily substitute carrot juice and all-grain bread sticks, thanks. But I really am glad not to see Big Mac's around anymore.

They discontinued Big Macs? I had no idea. And while I'll cop to a fondness for the occassional serving of tater tots myself, I've always loathed Slurpees by the way.

I forgot it was global works day. Sadly, I'll be celebrating at the Big Box store. It won't be very ecological but I hope the day is a great success. Can't wait to see all the MSM coverage of the events. /end snark

I'm jealous of Obama's metabolism. One Big Mac covers my maintenance calorie count. Some can eat, some can't.

[snark]I never heard of GW day. Is that where we pretend we're changing the planet's orbit by pushing hard on a brick wall? I have a hard time respecting a movement that won't recognize that Carbon Dioxide isn't Carbon any more than Hydrogen is water and since the largest oxidizer of carbon compounds on Earth is the US military and since Brazil will undo anything any of us might do in terms of switching to a hybrid car in a matter of a few hours chain saw work I think I'll declare tomorrow to be a semiotic-free hiatus where nobody wears any ribbons, puts stickers on clapped-out old Volvos, indulges in any anything-thons or talks of reducing their Lanthanium thumbprint while trying to secrete enough eco-hipness to pick up girls in ban the bomb T shirts.

Then I can have Locovore Tuesday where I can eat organic acorns and and organic lizards and inorganic sand - 'cause that's what grows here.

Wednesday I'll skip those flu shots so as not to risk geriatric autism, Thursday I'll go to sleep at 7:00 and won't wash to save energy and then on Futility Friday I'll fire up all three engines on my boat and burn 200 gallons cruising to the nearest burger joint. [/snark]

Sorry for all the above. If you're going to delete trolls I need to do something to keep the snarkatron functional.

LOL Glenn. I only deleted them on the one thread. They were just getting so boring. Didn't mean to deny you the fun of skewering them.

I can only skewer them in my dreams. Their unassailability lies in their dishonesty, stupidity and ignorance and its attendant arrogance.

You can make shish kabob out of their ideas and they'll just turn around and insist only Muslims make Shish kabobs and therefore you're a terrorist.

Who was it that said insanity is rare in individuals, but common in nations and political parties?

Well, I think of it as you can make shish kabob out of their "arguments" but you can't make them eat their words. Of course you'll never get them to admit they're wrong, but you skewer them with such eloquence and elegance that it's a joy for us reality based types to behold. You're truly a living treasure of the internets my dear.
