For Pink Lady's face
Also, I think Red Lady has a decent point at the end. Plaid Guy is a mannequin AFAICT.
It's permanent, I think:
A detestable person, forced to squirm. Does life get better?
I saw a clip of Plaid Guy getting told off after defending Trump's "guy talk." I don't blame him for keeping quiet at this point.

I don't know whats better, seeing the fallout from pussygate or watching the pound plummet against the dollar. Trump's done, put a fork in him.
Oh, man. Please don't add "-gate" to a word. (It's just one of my little peeves.)
I know what you mean, but by God, Pussy-gate has a real ring to it.
Sorry Tot, I agree with you but pussygate just rolls off the tongue.
I'm casting my vote with Teenertot here, gatification of policitical scandals has made my skin crawl since I was too young to even understand what they were talking about.
I propose naming the political controversy over naming political scandals *-gate: "gategate".
This isn't actually necessarily good, it's too soon, there's still time to replace Trump with viable candidate. They stick someone who's as bad as trump (if not worse) in terms of policy but actually has some political capital left, like Paul Ryan, up there and the GOP will still have a real shot at winning. Odds would be against them but not enough for comfort.
I think it's more related to giving us something to argue about other than Clinton's Goldman Sachs transcripts, as memedumpster pointed out on 54E. I'm sure there's plenty more shit like this waiting in the closet for the coming month.
I too have expressed this idea privately. I have been told it is a cynical one. But it's hard not to imagine Republican operatives discussing how to help the Dem's impeach the guy after he's elected to get their crash dummy into the drivers seat. In point of fact, this is precisely the sort of way I'd go about it. Pussy-gate that is. Heaven help us from bipartisan action.
@Exy : why? was there something in those transcripts that we haven't heard from Hillary Clinton for the last 20 years or so? Serious question, I haven't looked at the dump, but the headlines are real yawners. Clinton promotes global trade. Clinton has bucks, but does remember poor's like her parents. Clinton likes hedge fund guys like her son in law. Did I miss a big item whilst salivating over the lascivious pussygate...
I suppose you could argue the same for Trump, he earned that nickname "short fingered vulgarian" back in the 80's on merit not family connections. But outside of NYC, most of America doesn't seem to know much about him. Hence these "revelations". I mean, anybody here remember Marla Nipples, his slam-piece/second wife? Sheesh.
Exy, I was thinking more that it was released in advance of the Sunday debate, to preemtively discredit any potential moral high ground arguments from Trump over Bill Clinton's personal history. The timing's just right, a few days for it to really simmer in the 5 day news cycle but not far enough in advance for the Trump campaign (such as it is) to do damage control.
I would be shocked if this wasn't something the Clinton campaign had been sitting on for weeks or more until it was strategically useful, because that's how the campaign system works.
OZ's timing argument is right on the money. I second this.
I suspect the timing of the release of the transcripts (which aren't flattering but also aren't particularly damning or surprising, they're exactly what anyone who has paid any attention to Clinton's actual campaign would expect - neoliberal centrism) is just a happy coincidence.

>>>They stick someone who's as bad as trump (if not worse) in terms of policy but actually has some political capital left, like Paul Ryan, up there and the GOP will still have a real shot at winning.
I don't see it. Trump voters will feel betrayed. They're going to have to drag this dead horse over the finish line for any hope of a future for the GOP.
Oh it would be a long shot but they'd still have a better chance than Trump at this point.

This is a dumb thing to disagree about, but I disagree.
I dunno, maybe I underestimated this latest revelation. Remember Rush Limbaugh getting into trouble for slut-shaming women who wanted contraception to be covered by health plans? Insulting women gets you into more trouble than insulting muslims or mexicans because women are actually a majority.
However, I still think that if Trump voters decide that the GOP is bowing to "political correctness", they may never forgive them.
Hey Lee Atwater! You watching this, little buddy?
grab her right in the pussy
This is the greatest reality TV show ever.

Holy cow, look at these fucking idiots. It's all over their faces. The full-panel view reminds me of Goya's pictures of the Spanish royal family.
I also like that this led me to discovering Goya cosplay:
Left to right, from the top:
Don Lemon, The Riddler, Chaka Khan
Martha Queen of Diamonds, King Tut, and the living embodiment of smug self-satisfaction.
Also: since when is declaring one's fondness for sexual assault the same as calling Trump supporters a "basket of deplorables"?
If that is the only needle it takes to prick their skin, then oh my, what fun we can have.
