2. Oh damn!

Rachel brings it on. It is just too bad that the video cuts off at the climax.

3. It's the last minute that delivers the real punch, though. Good stuff, Rachel.

4. K/R

Does anybody know how that last sentence finished?

BTW, I may have some misgivings about about it when I get out of bed every morning, but after I've had my coffee then I know we should welcome the Republicans back to planet Earth whenever they decide to return. Rachel is quite right, we need an opposition party that can talk sensibly about how to get the biggest bang out of a tax dollar from a different perspective than we do. We don't need lunatics who think all taxation is evil and should be abolished without considering that no roads or schools will built. Why, we wouldn't even be able to maintain that crack military that they're so proud of.

9. No. One thing a lot of gay people I know have in common is they're comfortable in their own skin.

7. I wish I could rec this a dozen times

I don't think there exists a better mix of substance, style, intelligence and communication skills than Rachel. That includes Obama, Bill Clinton, or anyone else I can think of.

10. Thanks Rachel, well said

I was looking for a list of many RW myths that I could convey to those friends and relatives who believe the bullsh%t and she did it very eloquently.

11. Can this video be updated to include the finish...

This is the greatest open to Rachel's show ever. I have saved it in my favorites at YouTube. But I would love to be able to save it at YouTube with the complete ending to send links to some friends.

13. Couldn't agree more, Rachel

Points on business well-taken. I work in it and appreciate a good debate, and it's been lacking. I keep tellin the guys the same thing - you've got to hit harder and more in the middle, this right-wing nut stuff just doesn't fly. It's like it's all they know anymore due to Limbaugh and Beck.

I have to disagree with you on one point - you say "O is the strongest democrat since FDR, yeah, Clinton won 2 terms, but didn't come back as strong as O did." You gotta factor in Ross Perot. He was up when Clinton ran the second time. He pulled huge numbers.
I'm with Clinton on that point. Hell, Perot might have won this one. & I have to admit that when O came out on Tuesday night, I was hoping Clinton would show up, too. He's still got my pulse. I think that place would have about caved in - Bill does that to people.

Loved your lists - thanks for the chuckles.
