    16. Have you ever used glitter?

    It sticks around FOREVER. And even when you think it's all gone, you'll find it show up around the house, in bed, in your hair, etc.

    It's a quite brilliant act of citizen protest. Newt will be reminded of his anti-gay bigotry and this protest for months, regardless of how much he tries to forget the embarrassment.

    You'd think having a lesbian sister would have changed him, but Cheney was still promoted majorly homophobic policies while having a lesbian daughter, so at the end of the day these Republican 'family values' proponents just continue to stew in their own hypocrisy.
    So these liberals wouldn't have any problem with conservatives doing the same to Pelosi or Kerry or another liberal politician that we don't like and who we think is acting badly based on our beliefs and political beliefs? Someone who advocates killing unborn babies, maybe?

    It was totally wrong, but it does give us a new definition for the term "glitter fairy".

    What the hell are they talking about? I saw a quick blurb on CNN yesterday, but have seen no stories about this.
    In most sports, cold-cocking an opposing player repeatedly in the face with a series of gigantic Slovakian uppercuts would get you a multi-game suspension without pay.

    In hockey, it means you have to sit in the penalty box for five minutes.

    Glitter, anthrax, gun, whatever. Nice security guys.

    Would have been real funny had a security person gave him 2 in the chest and one in the head* because he thought this idiot was drawing out a weapon.

    Liberals have no problem being offensive and expecting no blow-back. Oppose them at one of their functions in even a benign way and they will act like you opened fire on a classroom of kindergarteners.
