I don't know who Margaret and Helen are but I think I love them

http://margaretandhelen.com/2012/10/04/somebody-over-in-the-romney-campaign-decided-to-go-ahead-and-shake-that-etch-a-sketch/

HELEN:

Well Margaret, once again I am going to say what the media wonít. Mitt Romney is a lying sack of shit and he wouldnít know a middle class tax cut if it bit him in the middle of his gold plated ass. Evidently the media seems to think that the person who slings the bullshit the farthest wins the debate. Well if that ainít the damnest thing.


MARGARET:

Helen, I couldnít follow either one of them most of the time. They both seemed a little too angry for my liking. The one I felt sorry for was that poor Jim Lehrer. Iíve left the house many a time and forgotten my teeth too.

1. Margaret never says much

but when she does, I usually laugh hard enough to scare the cat.

2. I love those two!

It's like they channel my great gramfeathers who was still alive when President Clinton was in office. In 1992 - she called in my dorm room and said, "Who is that little boy in the blue suit (Perot) up there with that petulant child who doesn't eat broccoli (Bush I) and that Rhodes Scholar?

7. I will make that a habit

I doubt my boss will let me just read them all day so I'll make sure I get a few minutes a day to read. Never heard of them before about 30 minutes ago when they popped up on my FB wall - a friend shared that post...

8. The best line of all

Romney needed a game changer and tonight he changed the game alright. He changed parties and became the liberal democrat we all knew he wanted to be.

12. Didn't see you'd just posted this Glitterati,

was posting it on FB after seeing this thread and obviously I agree, but there are so many other keepers. I hope I'm as sharp as Helen when I'm her age.

16. Absolutely!

I didn't catch her age, but I bet I'm close.

Never heard of this page before but now it's in my Daily List bookmarks.

11. I've loved them for years now but this is a classic even for Helen

Best line: "Yes. Romney needed a game changer and tonight he changed the game alright. He changed parties and became the liberal democrat we all knew he wanted to be."

17. I love those two; they remind me of our Agnes.

(my 86-year-old mother. Blunt as an old hoe, that woman)

The other blog I follow religiously is Stonekettle Station, and he's blunt too.

Thanks for linking to them, I've been reading their blog for a long time. You should have seen them when Bush was occupying the WH!
