July Tweets

Geithner says he'll stay for 'foreseeable future.' Judging from how far he could foresee shortly before the 2008 meltdown, that's not long.

Per Harpers. Women consider themselves old at 29, whereas men don't think of themselves as old until 58.

Tell me again, once you've taken the compromise out of politics what are you left with?

Is this an intentional Freudian mind game that therapist so easily decomposes into the rapist?

RT @samchaltain: RT @troyjones001: “@nickoleggett: Rupert Murdoch says he has been touched by messages left on Amy Winehouse's phone..”

As yet, Republicans have not cut a dime from budget. This week, though, they did cut a quarter of a trillion from stock market value.
