Extract from Story:
In a shocking development, Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama has been arrested in West Virginia, accused stealing the Democratic nomination. FBI agents had very little trouble locating Obama in West Virginia, but did extend apologies to two innocent black men who were arrested by mistake.

To push a story into the forum because you didn't like it says more about you than your petty little comments.

I think you are a cunt. And your writing is s**t.


To quote me when I am quoting someone else to expose my hypocrisy says more about you than my petty little comments.

I am right though aren't I? It's not right to push a story into the forum just because it is crap so we can all say its crap like Pointers was.

Jill the shrill may have been right but still, it isn't nice is it?

Not a great effort but then again making politics amusing is difficult.
Some would say impossible.

It depends on the remark used and the subject matter.
If it is really s**te and just downright offensive with no attempt at humour then I think it's justified.

Not this time though.

Touchy bunch here tonight!
The story did suck. But, I don't think it's right for one writer to drag into a forum and splatter their opinion about it.

BUCK..now go f--k yourselves, I'm in a bad mood now too!

When I visited Ireland, they made me kiss the f-cking Kidney Stone. I was drunk. Hated bending over like that, made my stomach churn so much I blew chow over a f-cking stonewall!
Irish a great bunch. Rowdy fellows... Sure know how to put away some brew. I like their whiskey best though, and their woman are pretty hot too. Why does everyone have a red face there?

Buckwheat, Buckwheat Buckwheat! You're a fine one to talk, but as I've observed, you approach satire from the "fast food" perspective. Still, sorry you didn't like it. Oh wait...I don't give a flip if YOU like it or not. Timely political commentary with a satrical edge is hard to do, and you know that, and not everyone will be happy with the result. But you're entitled to your frequently meandering-seldom-sticking-to-the-point-in-order-to-insult opinion. You ought to try it in your pieces, they'd get more laughs from me. That's MY opinion. Everyone else, thanks for your input, good or bad.

Fair is fair Whitehead so that reply was merited. Unfortunately, reality is frequently not funny.

I actually thought that the story was a clever twist and gave it 5*s.

Being raised by an Italian mother on the Mexican border made me realize that entrees are not edible without jalapenos, onions, green chilis, or garlic. Hence, I am the J-man.

I didn't even read it - I was just making a point about her comment about Pointer's story - still haven't read it.

Can't be bothered.

I read it. Twice.

No offense but it bored the tits off me.

Having said that I dont really read political stories, especially U.S. political stories.

It was probably great, I wouldn't know.

Well done Jill.

Apparently it was a good one.

Jill,

Buckwheats was merely mocking you and copying (a regular occurrence by the young rapscallion) what Duncan previously said about you in a previous posting.
Check it out. It's just a few stories back. Go on. I'll wait.

Then in that case, Whitehead, what are you doing here remarking at all? The very least you can do is READ any story to post about...or don't "be bothered" and be quiet. I'm sure "Pointer' doesn't need your protection.

Still, hitting me with my own remarks is fair, and occasionally funny.

But it's just empty space.
Is it like one of those magic pictures that you stare at and an image appears?
Still can't see anything.

Jill, you're the featured writer today. Well done. Bitch!
