    I can't believe I have to explain this. Have we become that desensitized?
    Exactly, that was my first thought as well. Using a brutalized, terrified woman being threatened (even by a damned goat) with more bodily harm while cops sipped their soft drinks and dismissed her with "she'll come around"... I mean, WTF?? Yeah, call me crazy but I don't find terrified, brutalized women to be comedic fodder. Un****ing believable.

    Nice to know I am not the only one who saw that.
    No men are anywhere, and Im allowed to go in, because Im the owner of the pageant and therefore Im inspecting it, Trump said... Is everyone OK? You know, theyre standing there with no clothes. Is everybody OK? And you see these incredible looking women, and so I sort of get away with things like that.

    "arguably the most racist commercial in history."

    Seriously? Not even close. Sexist, absolutely, but not seeing the racism.
    I love the NSA. It's like having a secret fan-base you will never see, but they're there, watching everything you write and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that I may be some person's only form of unconstitutional entertainment one night.

    i think the good ole days when you had this cute cuddly hillbilly selling mountain dew was a lot better than these urban thugs and bad apples being used to sell the stuff...

    the black kids would be better at selling watermelon or fried chicken, not mountain dew...
