    Pretty much. Clinton is one of those silver tounged people that could sell ice to an Eskimo. When I was 5 or 6 I saw him speak and even then I found him to be charasmatic, even if I couldn't understand anything he was saying.
    You can't reason somebody out of something they were never reasoned into in the first place.

    I'd reply that cocky/arrogant isn't the same as confident. Barack Obama was confident (as a candidate, not sure about him as a President). Bill Clinton is confident. LeBron James is arrogant.
    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    You have a point, but it's all about perception, right? I agree on LeBron. I want to punch him in the stomach (since I couldn't reach his face).

    If it were me I'd aim a bit lower than that.

    My standing reach is a bit more than 6'8" I think I could do it for you.

    I think I can reach up to like, 6'6" or so, but that's without any force. With force I'm probably only up to about 5'11" or so, max. Not to mention, I have a weak, girly upper body. So he'd be like, "uhm, was that a misquito?"

    ...so you're welcome to punch him for me.

    As a Washington Wizards fan, I'd like to remind all that WE pioneered LeBron haterdom first. I would like nothing more than to do that for you

There is no way that Gingrich can sweep all that under the rug.

    You Wizards may have started the hating but us Laker fans perfected it.

    Also if you do get around to sucker punching Lebron you should do it while wearing a championship ring, it's the cloest he'll ever get to one.
