Gotcha, yes...that is.

Re: The Politics Thread

Nobody gets to that level by being a "normal person;" too many people have this nonsensical idea that a person running anything is going to be like their buddy they can pal around and grab a beer with. If it's true in Adam Sandler movies, it's true in real life, damn you. If Kevin Kline a...

Maybe Clinton and co. are just absolutely terrible at running a presidential campaign. It's oddly hilarious watching them flail yet again against a candidate that, on paper, they have no business even competing with, much less losing to. I hope this isn't a fake rally from Bernie.

Just because Hans Gruber is the thing I associate with him the most doesn't mean I don't love his other roles. He was great in both Galaxy Quest and Dogma.
