They seem to think they've only been nice in abiding within the law, and viscerally moral human conduct as civil representatives. How then do they act when they're not pretending, if this has been pretending till now?
Do these little men really feel that emboldened to go there? Then again, it's always the little men you have to watch in such things.
And Rachel: I said a few things last night on Twitter about you declaring Walker's opposition won last night. What did I say? That you should never declare victory UNTIL YOU'VE WON? Well.
Is that a big iron toe I see testing the water? Does it feel like an itch traveling up the leg?
