    I got it! It took me forever, but I refuse to use google! Sen Daniel Moynihan moderate liberal from New York! He was a bit of an expert in the Johnson poverty programs and social security. Spoke with a lisp, penchant for wit and dry humor who spent many a Sunday on Meet the Press. Very clever Harvard graduate who was a speechwriter for Kennedy, and definitely the sort of fellow who would use the word 'fellow' to describe a man. I liked the character, the politics, the bow tie.

    Only am posting this here because I have a decent respect for you as a poster and it's mildly annoying to see a normally thoughtful and intelligent individual, even if I disagree with you a fair bit, up on the list of likes for something so dishonestly present.


    I'd definitely urge you to relook at this thread, relook at some of the posts (specifically the link to snopes), and take a second gander of it all. The presentation on the matter, that what was done in Radford (near and dear to me as I grew up just up the road) was a denial of service as opposed to turning down the chance to host a political campaign event, is not worthy of a thumbs up.

    Just my two cents.

    "You know, repeating the words "fact" and "factually" more often doesn't make your presupposition any more true."

    Absolutely agree on Russo, but the only reason that worked out is because they gave him kids.

    After all, the British version was a whacked out junkie who prostituted out his own girlfriend for political favours.

    I think you're spot on about the charm, there were times British Francis had me laughing my ass off at something that most people wouldn't find funny. In the last season when his own party member leaves and uses his own phrase against him "I couldn't possibly comment" and he's watching on Telly and says "You Bastard" I must have re-watched that 10, 000 times.

    They definitely did adapt the extreme difference in politics well to match the very different way the respective governments operate.

    Anyway I wait with baited breath for what comes next, I think it's going to be ****ing spectacular.

    So what do you think buddy, do you think the British house of cards is better than the American one?

    I suppose as Season 2 comes a few days from now we'll see how it goes, but I liked how the British one kept things succinct and free of fluff.

    That whole episode in the American one with the university library was utterly pointless filler to have an excuse for a thirteen episode season.

    You might very well think that, I couldn't possibly comment.

About Fiddytree
Political Leaning:


"To be sure, there is always a danger we will turn our opposition to deficiency into a rejection of those who bear it. [..] So just as the loathing of imperfection fuels the search for perfection, so the search for perfection makes imperfection all the more intolerable.”-Leon Kass, President George W Bush's Head of Bioethics Commission, Lecture 2006
