Sobbing Women

" Tell you about them sobbing women
Who lived in the Roman days
It seems that they all went swimming
While their man was off to graze
Well, a Roman Troop was riding by
And saw them in their me-oh-my
So they took them all back home to dry
Least, that's what Plutarch says

Oh, yes, them a-women was sobbing
Sobbing, sobbing fit to be tied
Every muscle was throbbing, throbbing
From that riotious ride
Seems they cried and kissed
And kissed and cried
All over that Roman countryside
So don't forget that
When you're taking a bride
Sobbing fit to be tied
From that riotious ride"
-- From the Musical Seven Brides for Seven Brothers

I won't say much in defense of John McCain but I am pretty sure he cried less in five years in a bamboo cage than this ridiculous idiot has in the last three months. If I were a democrat I would be praying for an Obama victory.

Hillary--Can't Understand Normal Thought!

It would seem, in light of your last sentence, that you are not only a God-fearing Democrat, you also seem to hold sway with the Big Guy...

Quoting a song about kidnapping & rape, well--you've set new standards, I see.

You will note that the last sentence starts with the word 'If' and therefor alludes not to my political standing but to the weakness of Mrs. Clinton as a candidate.

Also lets be clear, it's a quote about kidnapping and rape from a delightful Broadway musical. As we all know violent misogyny is fine as long as it is in the context of a delightful Broadway musical.

Another note, lets not go accusing me of having standards.
