  1. When is Cavanaugh going to show up somewhere sporting a soul patch? When can we expect to see Walker with a chin curtain? Does Bailey have the gene for friendly mutton chops?

    Stop the madness.

    1. If Katherine gets involved, I’m leaving.

  2. Someone should just grow one really long whisker but be otherwise clean shaven and then go on the air.

  3. The Seventies are dead? Not as long as Nick Gillespie is alive. Nick, you look like Sonny Bono mated with Bert Convy, and things didn’t go so well.

  4. It’s so cute how Nick thinks a Libertarian has a chance at winning. Only in my wildest dreams will independents say screw this two party bullshit.

  5. “You should see the damage, bronze. Huh? Metal damage, brain damage. You listen bronze. I am the Nightrider. I’m a fuel injected suicide machine. I am the rocker, I am the roller, I am the out-of-controller! I’m the Nightrider, baby! The Toecutter…. he knows who I am. I am the Nightrider! I am the chosen one. The mighty hand of vengeance, sent down to strike the unroadworthy! I’m hotter than a rollin’ dice. Step right up, germ, and watch the kid lay down the rubber road, ride to freedom!”

    1. Station Master: That must be your friend over there. They didn’t leave much of him.
      Bubba Zanetti: Must’ve cut his heart out, eh?
      Station Master: Yes. That’s what I meant. Poor bastard!
      Toecutter: [whirls on the Station Manager] The Nightrider. That is his name… the Nightrider.
      Station Master: [frightened] The NightRider.
      Toecutter: Remember him when you look at the night sky!
      Station Master: I will.
      Toecutter: Take your hat off.
      Station Master: Anything you say.
      Toecutter: Anything I say. What a wonderful philosophy you have. Take him away.

  6. I think we have a trend. I await to as to how this will play out with the female representatives of Reason.

    1. “More Trees, Less Bush” no longer applies.

      1. I can’t stop staring at it.

  7. I like how this “short lived” moustache has appeared on TV multiple times over the last week. Is calling it short-lived a threat to it, or has it already been sacrificed?
