    "thin gruel" - and if this week is any indication he's definitely having to scrape the bottom of the barrel - maybe we could supplement the venom with things we see around the intertubez, particularly some of the comments in other blogs.  I don't read rightwing blogs; I already know what their arguments are, and I don't want to give them the hits.

    Most of the negative comments I find are not nearly as profane as Kos's mail, and certainly not as obsessed with man-on-man sex, but I get a general idea of what the lunatic fringe is thinking without having to visit their sites.

      completely mainstream. When Ted poopy pants Nuget gets invited to the SOTU address after threatening the President it's hard to find outrageous material that shocks our sensibilities.

        Especially since he was sat next to his opposite in political, cultural, & musical skill, Tom Lauderdale. (For the record, Lauderdale found the experience very entertaining.)

        But I hoped the Secret Service subjected him first to not only a complete strip search, but a complete cavity search. Probed that wanker to his back teeth to make sure he wasn't a threat to the President or any elected officials.

        Then introduced him to his intellectual betters, Beavis & Butthead, so they could compare notes about their common experience.

        bother me nearly as much as Ted "Joe McCarthy redux" Cruz, who accused Chuck Hagel of taking monetary support from terrorist groups.  Cruz was actually elected to a seat in the U.S. Senate.
