    One of my pet peeves is when someone starts a topic with nothing but a link in their opening post. No commentary, no quote from the link of whatever they think is of relevance, just the link. Even worse, there is sometimes just a link to a video.

    This suggests either laziness or cowardice, depending on the situation.

    Another fact of life we seem to have to accept is that when some issue is hot, hot, hot there will be umpteen topics about it all at the same time.

    For instance, Mitt Romney's hidden camera 47% speech. A gazillion topics about it yesterday.

    To counter his embarassment over that video, the Romney campaign tried to get everyone to focus on a clip from a speech Obama made in 1998. And it is that clumsy effort which is the subject of this topic.

    It is one thing to open a topic and just post a link. It is another thing to open a topic for which there are already several other topics on the same subject.

    But for a shitload of people to start a bunch of topics with almost identical titles, right down to the quotation marks...well, that has to earn the 2012 Copy and Paste award for mindless dronesmanship!

    Are they all getting the same Romney campaign email? What is going on?


    No wonder Obama is winning when his competition has a dearth of originality:

    Mitt's ill-considered comment was more recent that 1998, but it too was HELD for a period of time UNTIL the Obama-leaning left wing media felt it appropriate to time the release.

    Now what the present infestation in the Oval Office said in 1998 may be a bit dated, but you can bet your bottom dollar that the dipshit STILL believes in redistribution.

    The same person subsequently LAMENTED that the power of the SCOTUS did not include "redistributive" justice -- whatever the fuck he meant by that, exactly.

    The "timed release" was exactly what I was thinking yesterday. I imaging both campaigns are holding a pile of what they believe to be bombshells to be dropped at strategic times in September and October.

    So expect more carpet bombing from their respective hive minds.

    They probably all read the same rightwingloon websites. Funny none of them are clever enough to come up with their own thread title.
