1. Buy the ticket, take the ride
as the good Doctor used to say.

2. I can't believe I'm hearing a US Senator explain how he arranges
himself on the toilet to take a dump. It just boggles the mind. Imagine if that were Kerry, or Obama, or Dodd. I can't even picture them being brought that low.

11. Yes... for me, he stopped being a Senator as soon as the tape
began. This guy is really just digging his way to China.... Sad, pathetic, and frankly I hope this doesn't turn out tragic as has been the case with some others so publically humiliated.

He may be pond-scum from the standpoint of his political views, but he is a human being and I can't help but feel some sympathy for him... He is a product of a homophobic environment.

12. my grandchildren were trying to figure that out
they were watching Countdown and intrigued if not shocked that such things happen. They were trying to figure out how he said it could be his right hand when the policemen said it was his left! This sort of intrigue is also a hot topic around the watercooler.

3. humor me--what does he say?
I have no desire to listen to it, but there surely must be some hilarity somewhere...

5. This is well past hilarity
Is it appropriate to wish that all Republicans would just somehow evaporate? The whole lot of them are just sickening.

8. I'm at that point with most of humanity.
Most people are vapid, mindless little shits...and it sounds like the Senator fits that, ahem, perfectly.

10. apparently he has some difficulty arranging himself on the commode
so it entails him MOVING OVER, thereby causing the footsie situation with the occupant of the neighboring stall - yes INDEED

4. it's sad for many reasons, i'm sad that we all know about how a senator
takes a crap, seriously in your entire life did you ever think you would know the mechanics of something like? And on the tape he sounded like a person and not like a fire breathing gay rights denying asshole.

6. Who is going to out low this low?
Edited on Thu Aug-30-07 11:00 PM by Gregorian
But you know it's going to happen.

Stay tuned for Who's the Next Republican to Get Canned. Starring your favorite Senator!

Maybe it'll be Bush streaking through the Rose garden, after Dick.
Maybe Barney get's in on the fun.

Good.

15. I'm not even close to feeling sorry for him
It's more like I feel sorry for the rest of us, having to share the planet with these Rethug low-lifes.

9. I don't understand why he talked at all
you'd think a freaking SENATOR would have the common sense to shut the f*** up and get a lawyer

13. You certainly don't have to be smart to be a senator
Inhofe? Sessions? Hello, McFly?
