Comments: Who is Julia and why am I paying for all her sh*t?
Geez, why'd he have to pick both my daughter's name and her life to make the point? We tried, we really tried. All I can say is, "I'm sorry. Truly sorry."
And I mean that, too. Sincerely.

You know the old saying, "behind every beatiful woman, there's somebody who has to deal with her @#$%".
With BarryO, you're that somebody. He wants life to be fair, even if the government has to make it so, so every woman's a beauty, because every woman will have that somebody.

Don't worry Jewel. This is a blip in time. At some point, she's going to have to get her ass out on the corner and start working.

"behind every beatiful woman, there's somebody who has to deal with her @#$%".
John, you're making my day. That reminds me of a 4-times married guy I worked for (another hopeless romantic) who remarked of a beauty we once saw on the street, "Somebody somewhere thinks she's a pain in the ass."
My other favorite concerns a sunny day sitting on my front stoop in Oakland when an old guy who looked like Popeye walked by at about the time we both were arrested by the sight of a gorgeous young college student on the other side of the street.
Without missing a beat he looked at me and intoned "Distance lends enchantment."
Words to live by - and you're right that the current crop of princesses are gonna look like Wise Women in comparison to what the Democrats want to raise.

Reason's follow up to that chart.
Conservatives will probably hate it just as much as the Obama version.
