1. Ahhh the greek columns, all the talking heads snickered
The GOP mocked it, and the concern trolls on DU all wrung their hands.

I think that was a pretty damn good speech wasn't it? No one was talking about columns afterwards were they?

3. Not a word about columns from that point on!
He knocked it out of Mile High Stadium.

That speech kept me sane during the general election.
It was as good as it gets!

4. Oh THAT one! I remember that now!
When someone mentioned it in another thread, I thought I had somehow missed him skipping the State of the Union and snubbing BUSH.

But THAT I remember.

And now, they are forced to kiss one another for the rest of eternity to make up for it. lol







Yeah yeah, that last one's a Photochop

.... or IS It! Payback's a bitch and it Bill! (ha ha)

7. That one didn't last that long......
But Mediawhores were on it toute suite.

That's when I knew they were reading DU! :rofl:

Problem is they only read us to get the scoop on the petty shit,
that we blow up into great big deals!

6. I'm glad I came late and missed all these!
Snub gate? LOL!!!!

Me and about 10 others watched the convention together and not one of us discussed the columns! Glad I missed all this craziness. Shows you DU and the real world are miles and miles apart.
