re: Video proves CoS Kelly lied about Rep Wilson speech at FBI - The Spleen
Shocking that the "RESPECT THE TROOPS!!11!" side has turned the death of a US troop into a petty pissing match of he said, she said. Pathetic on all fronts. ...

re: Roy Moore Has 11-Point Lead - The Spleen
What I find funny is the same people that always lament over the perceptions of the South being dumb are the same ones that will send a guy like Roy Moore to the US Senate. ...

re: Is it just me or do most modern country songs just seem like lists... - The Spleen
I just spent the entire week working in a client's office that played a local country music station on their PA all day. I was suicidal one hour after getting there Monday morning. So awful. Every male singer sounded exactly the same. ...

re: What if after the '06 Iron Bowl Mike Shula had ignored Ray Perkins - The Spleen
I believe it was after the 06 Mississippi State game that Moore suggested to Shula that he needed a staff shakeup. Shula refused, then the Iron Bowl was the proverbial nail in the coffin. Supposedly Moore left that game in disgust at halftime. ...

[quote]I'm not convinced that they were genuinely offended.[/quote] Who knows. I wasn't there, so don't really know. I do know they were on their way to the airport to pick up his body, so I can only imagine how emotional the moment already was. I would guess there was also already some bias th...

re: Roy Moore Has 11-Point Lead - The Spleen
Moore's actual claim was entire towns in the Midwest were under Sharia Law. When challenged on that claim, he couldn't name a single town or example to back up his claim, only that he had heard town in Illinois or Indiana or somewhere were under Sharia Law. He's a buffoon. ...

re: Video of Trump's call to Gold Star Widow - The Spleen
[quote]Yes, he did and he also explained it was said as praise for soldier's bravery[/quote] Absolutely, and that's something Trump could have done instead of his Tweet calling Wilson a liar. It would have quelled a lot of the furor over this. ...

re: Video of Trump's call to Gold Star Widow - The Spleen
[quote]The line itself is irrelevant. [/quote] Trump made it relevant when he called her a liar when she claimed he said it. [quote]It's how the rep tried to contort it into something negative and callous [/quote] Sure, she shares some culpability. It really wasn't her place to publicly...

re: Video of Trump's call to Gold Star Widow - The Spleen
I think the media would not have run with it like they did had Trump just done a mea culpa and clarified what he said and what he was trying to convey. His Tweet just furthered the narrative that he is incapable of showing any humility in the face of criticism, and that just adds fuel to the fire. ...

[quote]This entire "story" is based on a second hand snippet of the conversation, all provided by the cowboy-hat wearing "rockstar". [/quote] Kelly confirmed yesterday that Trump did say the line in question, so it's not just the Congresswoman. ...

re: Video of Trump's call to Gold Star Widow - The Spleen
[quote]Wait - this was not the call in question was it??? [/quote] No. I don't think Trump was intentionally callous towards Johnson on his call to her. He tried to convey the sentiment that military personnel understand the risks when they sign up for service and was trying to say it in ...

re: Roy Moore Has 11-Point Lead - The Spleen
[quote]And finally, the fact that he think there are "Christian Communities" in Illinois and Indiana who are instituting Sharia Law is one of the most mind-boggling statements I've ever seen from a major candidate, let alone one who is supposed to be an expert on law and religion. [/quote] It...

re: How much you think I can scalp 2 Tennessee tickets for Saturday? - The Spleen
I got 30 yard line, lower bowl seats for Arkansas this past weekend for $15 each. This was still about 30 minutes before kickoff. I'm not sure Tennessee will get that low for those type seats since it's an afternoon game, but it should be no trouble finding some below face. ...

re: Big Brother 19 - Season Long Thread - The Spleen
Amazing Race doesn't ever really have many spoilers from what I remember. I haven't watched it in a few seasons though. Used to be my favorite of the CBS reality shows, but it got kind of stale. ...
