Today, Mame said something utterly reasonable. It wasn't the first time she did this, but this time her reasonableness was especially striking. She said, and I quote:
I'm always mind-boggled At the heat, passion, and interest People have in politics. It's always The same.(linebreaks added to bring out the full weight of literary composition)
She's right. And that's why I hereby make the following chastity vow:
Thanks for showing me the light, Mame.
- I shall henceforth, until the 2008 presidential election has been held, the votes counted, and the result cleared by the Supreme Court, abstain from posting to the A2K politics threads.
- No political opinion shall pass my lips until then.
- I may or may not use loopholes to engage in political intercourse, such as the ones presented by forums like "Legal", "Books", and "Philosophy and debate". But if I do, I will use them sparingly.
In a pig's eye!!!

Honest! I'm as serious as you were in your anti-lerve, anti-flirting, anti-sexual-innuendo thread!
That bears repeating.
(I hope you're not serious!! You're one of my favorite politics-types...!)
Good luck.... sure loopholes will appear :wink:
Nonsense...I was pretty serious on that thread. The place had become a seething pool of hormones!
and here I thought this was another "im leaving a2k thread"
so it's awfully likely I'll owe dinner to Steve and Walter.
We haven't decided yet. Actually, we made the bet in 2005. There is hope that Steve and Walter have forgotten it.
Naaaw. When a greater part of your body than not consists of overweight, you don't need Franciscans to help you with that kind of chastity.
