#6. George Zimmerman surfaced

This poor guy, after acquittal, will never have any peace unless he takes this advice: http://bonedjello.com/blogger13/...

Wingmaster

LOL Vlad, and a guarantee he will be forgotten.

truthhurts

not sure why im so curious, but I want to know the race of the accident victims....there must be a reason why the media has not jump all over that; im guessing because they don't want to eat crow

Lanivan

Apparently you "older" gents are not eating your Wheaties....when you are still fixated on George/Benghazi and not a word about Shirley Jones' revelation of her "highly sexed nature" (Good. God.), you are clearly in need of sustenance.

As for George, I'm sure he'll be back in the news, killing unarmed drug-addicted thugs into the sunset. Hey, doesn't Rush live in Florida.....? (shucks - he's probably never unarmed....)

rukidding

Rush couldn't hit water if he fell out of a boat, his weapon of choice is his mouth, which rarely if ever hits the mark.

As for George, easy lest you make him cry. You have to be some kind of a major coward to have people believe you had no other choice but to shoot someone in a wrestling match. Not to worry about George's future, it is already cast in stone, and soon he will have one above his head.

rukidding

Shirley Jones; not so much. Ann Margret, Connie Stevens, Marilyn Monroe, Angie Dickenson, Brigitte Bardot, Jayne Mansfield, Bettie Page, Ursula Andress, and of course Raquel Welch; now those were some incredibly "highly sexed" ladies.

Wingmaster

How could you leave out Goldie Hawn....vroom, vroom. Careful were being distracted by our weak spot RU!

Lanivan

Poor Wing! An expression of appreciation for the human form is a distraction and a weakness. But George can provoke and kill an unarmed person, and be found innocent and declared manly under Stand Your Ground laws, that we are told is based on our God-given Constitutional rights.

Shirley might be on to something, by declaring herself as having the right to enjoy God-given human creation. Surely there must be something in the Constitution to provide Wing with the right to not feel weak and distracted!

Let's get Vlad on this, tout suite.

Vladtheimp

I guess he was "evolving" on this too, like homosexual marriage - Teh One couldn't a flip-flopper, could he? http://www.sondrakistan.com/2013...

I'm sure many folks here would select another femme fatale http://www.frugal-cafe.com/publi...

I might add Anna Maria Alberghetti or any of the Ronnettes.

Lanivan

Ah - Anna Maria! What an extraordinarily lovely pair of....lungs...https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=...

Ok - since we're all into true confessions....Johnny Crawford, from the Rifleman.

Lanivan

Btw, the link looks photoshopped....or is this your idea of two Barbies being eclipsed by vampy Monster High?

Vladtheimp

No photoshop - the contrast in the photo is the reason for this adoring look http://images.huffingtonpost.com...

Lanivan

You're mean. And/or jealous because our First Lady has had steady approval ratings in the mid-60's for the last 5 years, and your Tea Party Sons of Anarchy on the Hill are in the bottom-feeder range of 9-14%.

And the fact that she graduated from high school as the class salutarian, graduated cum laude from Princeton, got her JD from Harvard Law School, was an associate dean at U of Chicago, and was a VP at U of Chicago Medical Center.

Lanivan

Bettie Page?!

Lanivan

Goldie Hawn?!

Wingmaster

Threw the vroom , vroom in there to draw Vlad in and make it "Verrry eenteresting" guy chatter. There you are again smack dab in the middle of the boys club again Lanny. Please stand over by the door and hand out cigarettes...please;-)

Lanivan

1.) May I draw your attention to the fact it was my comment that led to the chatter in the first place?

2.) I do not approve of cigarette smoking, and you couldn't pay me enough to hand them out, although I wouldn't object to an occasional fine Cuban cigar.

3.) Why the distraction of misogynistically-laced fancy dancing on your part when the thread turns to the Constitution?

4.) In my experience, Vlad needs no special enticement to be drawn into a thread regarding either the human form or the Constitution. For example, wasn't he the one to instigate this whole thing?

Wingmaster

Thread dead!!!

December 11, 2008) was an American model who became famous in the 1950s for her pin-up photos.[2][3] Often referred to as the "Queen of Pinups", her jet black hair, blue eyes, and trademark bangs have influenced artists for generations.[4]

Page was "Miss January 1955", one of the earliest Playmates of the Month for Playboy magazine. "I think that she was a remarkable lady, an iconic figure in pop culture who influenced sexuality, taste in fashion, someone who had a tremendous impact on our society,"[5] Playboy founder Hugh Hefner told the Associated Press.

In 1959, Page converted to evangelical Christianity and went on to work for Billy Graham.[6] The latter part of her life was marked by depression, violent mood swings, and several years in a state psychiatric hospital.[7][8] After years of obscurity, she experienced a resurgence of popularity in the 1980s.

Vladtheimp

You won't so easily deter us from remembering the Benghazi scandal, and the Congress from getting to the bottom of it. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/...

Also, speaking of Benghazi and George Zimmerman: The tweet of the day comes courtesy of Glenn’s Twitter feed, which includes this retweet of Kathy in South Carolina:

The most famous white Hispanic helped rescue 4 Americans. The most famous black Caucasian refused to rescue 4 Americans! Who’s A HATER?

Wingmaster

Wow, such a compassionate group here....only for the aggressors, not for victims!

Sounds like Shirley was a good shot tho;-)
