    While you make funny on Twitter, Democrats are using Kimberlin tactics daily:

     Tut tut, Anamika, tut tut!

    Your willingness to misread Adjoran’s comment is the hallmark of a troll grasping at straws, and living proof of the wise words of Mark Twain:

    “It is better to keep
    your mouth shut and appear
    stupid than to open it and remove all doubt.”

    Tut tut, Anamika!  Obtuseness is not your friend.  Tut tut!

     Fictional JeffS exasperated by what he sees as fictional Anamika’s willful obtuseness stomps on his fictional toe, breaking it. Fictional JeffS experiences fictional agony, files fictional suit against fictional Anamika, taking her fictional house and car. Now fictional homeless Anamika walks to her fictional job.

    There is an edit function in Disqus, Anamika. 🙂

     Thanks for the suggestion smitty, but the edit function isn’t available for those who post as a “Guest”–like me–in Disqus.

    I think it is high time I use the log-in feature in Disqus via an account in Disqus/Google/Facebook/Twitter/Yahoo/Open ID to take advantage of the edit functionality.

     Tut tut, Anamika, tut tut!

    A stream of conscious is no substitute for intelligent discourse.  Or even original  repartee.

    Tut tut, Anamika!  Beware of strong drink in large quantities.  Tut tut!

    Sometimes, Admiral, the high quality of your wit makes me want to give up publicly showcasing my own – damn, you’re good.
