Last Wingnut Standing

“The Republican National Committee is considering sanctioning the GOP presidential primary debates and then selling the broadcast rights to news outlets, two Republicans with knowledge of the idea tell CNN.”


Can’t they just get Ailes to cut them a check and drop the “bidding” pretense?

I’d rather buy the broadcast rights to a 24 hour marathon of Jersey Shore as the dialog is more intelligent and the people on the show are less annoying/stupid.

“And this year’s Republican debates brought to you by Exlax.”

The neighbor who has a crush on me is taking me trap shooting this afternoon. Warnings? Advice? Smart-ass comments?

Bring it.

What do they mean by “sanction” in this context?

@karen marie has her eyes tight shut: I assume it means they put their seal of approval on it, so you have official and unofficial GOP debates, but I doubt it means they’d put any money into it. Last I heard, they don’t have any.

If the GOP is hard up for cash maybe they should consider selling naming rights to the party?

I mean officially, of course.

It’d be fun if FauxNooz was the only network to put in a bid.

Are they kidding, they expect the news media to pay to cover their news? Hope it blows up in their faces.

@karen marie has her eyes tight shut:

if they want to make money they should make the primary a cage match and sell it to Pay Per View

We @TJ/ Jamie Sommers /TJ: Sounds like fun! Relax. Don’t point a gun at anyone, thats all.

@TJ/ Jamie Sommers /TJ: Make sure he provides you with a shotgun that fits you and ear protection (unless you have your own shotgun). Take a hat, shades, sturdy, comfy shoes. You may want to hit the Walgreens or CVS and get a little blister pack of 28-29 db foam ear plugs in case dude forgets.

Have you shot skeet before? Be patient if he has not previously attempted to teach women before. Men and women do come from different places as far as the shooting sports go. Read up on the sport. The main thing is to have fun. I suck at it but its still fun to go.

Jamie at the Range:

Big Box book retailers often have a book or two on the shotgun sports. If I were really into it, I’d have a side by side or an over/under, but all my shotguns are pump actions. I think Ian J shoots clays and stuff.

@Jamie, Prommie: Prom’s right; Review The Four Rules.

# All guns are always loaded!
# Never let the muzzle cover anything you are not willing to shoot/kill/destroy/!
# Keep your finger off the trigger until your sights are on the target!*
# Always be sure of your target!

*”Booger hook off the bang switch.”

@redmanlaw: Nope. Never tried this before. Thanks for the tips! I’m going to consider this a success if I don’t Cheney anyone.

@Benedick AEA, AFTRA, SAG, DG.: Well, that goes without saying.

@TJ/ Jamie Sommers /TJ: If you think you may be shooting semi auto handguns also, stay away from scoop neck tops and sandals so you don’t drop hot brass down your shirt or on your feet. Wear a shirt that you could play tennis in as far as movement goes. Some competitive shooters wear shorts to the range.

Wow – an RML fashion tip.

@Capt Howdy: Interesting how it demonstrates the singing voice as a cultural construct. Made me think of assholes reading books on tape doing the women light and the men heavy. It doesn’t make me tingle in the taint the way this or this does. 1st song is the best song ever written by anybody anywhere anytime. Sing it to them and cats will do your bidding.

@Capt Howdy: I’m crazy about that voice. It was intended to sound heroic when the music was written, fell violently out of favor with the end of the castrati, and has only very recently started to be reclaimed by the new homo theatre. (Travel tip: Avoid anything directed by a Swiss director. You’re welcome) I find it thrilling and very masculine without the encumbrances of butch. The technique involved is phenomenal as the singer negotiates the various placements of the voice in the head and chest. Fab. The Thai singer sounds like Betty Bacall when she sings in her chest. Though not quite as deep.

@Capt Howdy: Don’t you just want to feed him grits and teach him about cowboys?

@Capt Howdy:


(oh wait, this isn’t /b/) :)

@Capt Howdy: I used to like a nice kathoey, back in the day. Once in a while, for the variety.
