The results of advanced thumb twiddling

Gays and lesbians did not turn out strongly for Democrats on Tuesday. I guess half-hearted efforts just don’t rally the base when you treat them as an after-thought. They stay home, or occasionally, vote for the other Party.

You’ve got a lame-duck session to get DADT repealed oh great 11th-dimensional chess player. Hope may not spring eternal, but a feeling of yet another imminent disappointment does.

Thankfully, there appears to be one Democrat in Iowa with the fortitude our leadership in Washington does not.

Lessons And Strategies



In 1949, I decided to wrestle professionally, starting my career in Texas. In my debut, I defeated Abe Kashey, with former World Heavyweight boxing Champion Jack Dempsey as the referee. In 1950, I captured the NWA Junior Heavyweight title. In 1953, I won the Chicago version of the NWA United States Championship. I became one of the most well-known stars in wrestling during the golden age of television, thanks to my exposure on the Dumont Network, where I wowed audiences with my technical prowess. I was rumored to be one of the highest paid wrestlers during the 1950s, reportedly earning a hundred thousand dollars a year. My specialty was "the Sleeper Hold" and the founding of modern, secular, Turkey.
