9/10    To any stir-frying experts: every time I make my stir fries with chicken,
        no matter how thinly I slice it, it comes out rubbery and chewy. How
        can I make them softer? I don't think I can slice them any thinner (1/8")
        \_ Marinate the chicken first.
           \_ I do that already (rice vinegar, oil, soy sauce) -op
        \_ Cut the chicken across the grain, cook the chicken at high heat, with\
           enough oil that it doesn't stick...the more the merrier.  Set aside
           the chicken and cook the rest of your ingredients.  Add the chicken
           back in right before making your sauce.  -scottyg

           \_ Gay Code Detected
              \_ What the fuck does that mean? Learn to cook. -op
              \_ Ha!  That's funny.  Playing with your meat is always gay.
                 Actually I'm a vegetarian, but I read a lot of Molecular
                 Gastronomy text, and I used to be a chef for years.  -scottyg

9/10    McCain is morally unfit to be president
        \_ From the guy saying we should interview Palin's OB to find out if
           Trig is really her baby?
           \_ So you've got nothing to respond to his charges.
              \_ No, just that everything that comes out of Sullivan's face
                 should be viewed with healthy skepticism.  I'll look into it
                 when I have time.
                 \_ Translation: Sullivan is 100% right but I'm going to
                    stick my fingers in my ears and say LALALALALA I CAN'T
                    HEAR YOU.
                    \_ Obama fan desperation level red!
                     \_ Don't your ears hurt when you jam those fingers in so
                    \_ No, I hadn't read it.  Now I have.  Wow, what a loon. He
                       says that McCain lacks integrity because:
                       1) He didn't endorse Kerry in 2004
                       2) He didn't vote to outlaw tortore "as bad and worse
                          than the torture inflicted on him in Vietnam" (which
                          is a joke)
                       3) "MTV-style attacks on Obama's virtues"
                       4) He "thre caution to the wind and with no vetting"
                          picked Palin
                       This is a joke.  Seriously
                       \_ Sullivan's a Republican who supported the war at
                          first and then later concluded that it was a bad
                          idea; he endorsed Kerry in 2004. McCain's failure to
                          take a stand against torture is viewed by many sane
                          people as a political capitulation. Your reading
                          comprehension is suspect on the third point. Palin
                          opposed everything that McCain has stood for until
                          he adopted the part line. What, of any of the things
                          above, does not point to a lack of integrity? Also,
                          which of these is crazy? Your disagreement is not a
                          valid psych diagnosis.
                          \_ My third point is a direct quote.  Sullivan may
                             have been a conservative at some point, but he's
                             gone wildly off the rails.
                             \_ Your "direct quote" leaves out the charge of
                                slime that relates directly to the charge of
                                lack of integrity.
        \_ This is retarded.  Most of his critisisms, aside from the torture
           one, are stronger against Obama than McCain.
           \_ Huh?  Is up down?  What the hell are you talking about?
            \_ He seems to think Obama also thinks "lipstick on a pig" is
               calling Palin a piggy pig.
               \_ No, McCain's being silly there, but Obama has also done
                  similar things.  So, it's a wash.
                  \_ I see a stunning lack of examples.
                  \_ The "equality" argument is such horeshit.  This is like
                     equating the entirety of the Iraq WMD travesty with
                     a stupid comment of Michael Moore's.
                     \_ You're right, Obama hinting that all of his opponents
                        are racists was much worse.  I shouldn't have tried to
                        equate them.
                     \_ You're right, Obama's repeated hinting that all of his
                        opponents are racists was much worse.  I shouldn't
                        have tried to equate them.
                        \_ Can you give ANY examples?  Or are you just making
                           shit up?
                           \_ Obama keeps playing the race card, saying his
                              opponents will say "his name is funny" or "he's
                              black".  The most recent example was in the last
                              week or so.
                              \_ So no, you can't.
                                 \_ Oh for heaven's sakes, are you living in a
                                    cave? Have you forgotten how to use google?
                                    Here's an old one.  (Easiest to find.)
                                    \_ Fuck you whomever deleted my
                                       response to this.
                         \_ But of course it is okay that McCain says that
                            opponents of Palin are sexist.
                         \_ I guess you've missed out on the rather unsubtly
                            racist ads McCain is now running.
                        \_ In the 2000 primary, Bush supporters push-polled
                           that McCain had a secret black baby out of wed-
                           lock; these people weren't racists, they were
                           politically savvy-- and morally bankrupt. For
                           Obama to say that he expects his opponents to
                           make fun of his name and try to stir up fear by
                           reminding people that he's black is not an
                           accusation of racism; it's pulling a proven
                           tactic out into the open before it gets used
                           covertly. Getting back to the original point,
                           there is no grand total score of Good/Evil for
                           you to use to "balance" the two candidates on.
                           Take each case as it comes and evaluate it
                           given its importance to you. Various Voting
                           Poll sites have worked this out, and so can you.

9/9     McCain supporters: What do you like about a campaign that would
        run an ad like this?  Do you really think that's the sort of
        thing we need in the White House?  Really?
        \_ I don't give a shit about this. -McCain supporter
        \_ This doesn't bother me either. Seems par for the course. -Ind.

        John McCain want's to stop all aid to Israel.
        (Ok, no he doesn't, but it's proof that John McCain is willing to
        say any old shit he thinks sounds good without actually worrying
        about if what he says is reasonable.)
        \_ Why do we do this anyway? Send many billions to both Israel and
           Egypt.  Who wants to try defending that?
           \_ It is cheaper than a war in the ME.

9/10    Instead of discussing lipstick stupidity, how about a real scandal?
        "Government officials handling billions of dollars in oil royalties
        partied, had sex with and accepted golf and ski outings from
        employees of energy companies they were dealing with, federal investigators
        said Wednesday."
        \- the republocan are only doing ths to make a point about how
           govts are inherently corrupt. these people are RANDROID HEREOS!
        \_ `"this whole IG report reads like a script from a television
            miniseries and one that cannot air during family viewing time."`
            Hmm, where can I submit my resume to those oil companies?
            \- drill, babee, drill

9/10    I don't really care about what the rest of the world thinks when they
        don't even believe what happened on 9/11.
        \_ Yeah! We all know it was Iraq!
           \_ I am pretty sure a majority of Republicans still believe that.
              \_ Yes but you're an idiot.
                    "A Harris poll taken two weeks before the 2004
                     presidential election found that a majority of
                     Bush's supporters believed that Iraq was behind the
                     9/11 attacks"
                     Who are the idiots?
