    She also vowed to rid the world of poverty, AIDS, juvenile diabetes and hysterical pregnancy by 2010.

    Sadly, she admitted nothing could be done about the frequent dragon attacks.

    Ben Smith needs to run spellcheck.
    Wow, a politician told a crowd what they wanted to hear.
    Color me shocked.
  4. It was supposed to read "she told C-Rod". That's Alex's brother Charlie. He works at an Applebee's

    Regular folks don't get fancy, elitist diseases like cancer.

    Hillary has committed to wiping out "The Bug That's Going Around."
  7. "...she appeared to threaten to break up the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries."
    That's Ben talking there, not the candidate. Would there be something wrong with using the WTO to break up OPEC?

    More than half of the petroleum produced by OPEC is produced by countries that aren't even WTO members, if I'm not mistaken. And the countries that are a member of both organizations essentially get a free pass, because frankly OPEC has more leverage than the WTO. It's what, 11 countries? And the natural resource they are sitting on trumps about 140 countries. You can't break up a cartel without leverage. If you had that leverage, they couldn't have gotten away with being a cartel for the last 40 years or so.
