Pcad for President!

....of what I'm not sure.

Who's in? I think I get bonus $$ for every vote he gets. Sort of a commission kind of thing.

You realize of course this means I'll have to select a running mate. I will have to consider the importance of the Fred vote.

All around the world, foreign leaders are scratching their heads and simultaneously asking, "What is this 'Fredliness' of which the new President speaks?"

Wouldn't you already be pulling in the Fred vote on your own?

Freds are very practical and know that only an idiot would vote for president based on who was chosen for vice president.

The only way to get the Fred vote is to be a Fred. Fortunately, there are pictures and quotes which demonstrate your Fredliness. Just don't let the OCP crowd know. Oops. Too late.

Pcad bridges the traditional Road Nazi/Fred divide. I am a Froad Nazi. You'd be voting for Velo Change.

You sound like a Rush Limbaugh Troll.

I disagree with everything Rush says, but I like his show. Maybe that's why he just got that $400 million dollar contract. The fat boy certainly earns it.

Yes, and supposedly Hitler's beer hall speeches were quite rousing and entertaining.

Hitler made less money than Rush, and he didn't have a Gulfstream G550 jet either.

Your point? Sounds like you idolize ol' Limbaugh. Good to know before the election.

Actually, I believe Hitler could quaff as much Krimsekt as he wanted from Eva Braun's bosom. He ended up extraordinarily wealthy, and had access to the finest things.

Not at all. I said I disagree with his politics. I do find him entertaining however. As do 15-20 million weekly listeners. The USA needs guys like Limbaugh as much as we need guys like the late great George Carlin. If they're entertaining, more people hear what they have to say, and the more these guys piss you off, the more they make you think. I realize that's pushing the mental envelope for much of BF, but still.

Rush Limbaugh is to talk radio what Elvis was to rock n roll. He essentially saved AM radio. I wish his politics were like mine, but they're not. The most amazing part of all this is the guy is deaf now, but he has adapted to his hearing loss remarkably well.

But we digress. Rush is too fat to ride a bike.

Pardon me while I vomit.

If I sounded like that guy, it was truly a horrendous error on my part. I retract my comment.
