I said "Yeah he's in there."

And I swear to god, he smiled and looked me right in the eye and said:
"Thanks."

And then he left.

Add the 25% who are collectivists and believers in the Holy Church of Government Redistribution, and you get to Romney's 47% number. The 22% with the 25% form a political coalition.

Too bad for the 25% as more and more of the 22% come to realize that it's the 25% who wants (and needs) to keep them down in the 22% in order to maintain power and authority.

And, for those that don't have access to speakers or headphones at the moment:
What you've just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul.

An internet cliché qualifies for "best of tdpf"? Ironically, it's as if you are rewarding yourself points you don't deserve.

Added to the list of things Meade doesn't understand (currently includes 'sarcasm') - irony.

Add cliche

Maybe not so much doesn't understand as doesn't know what one is. Sorry Meade, a quote from a movie is not a cliche. Better luck next time.

Sorry Stebben84, an overused quote or phrase from anywhere is a cliché. Would you like me to google it for you?

Or to put it another way, you are at least three times more likely to injure yourself on a bicycle than as a pedestrian, per hour.

The only thing more annoying than bad math is hoping the reader is bad at math. The fact that it often works doesn't make it any less annoying.

To add to this bizarre exchange, the admin was busy erasing about five inane posts by Meade, one of which Dedering managed to quote before it was erased.
