      Oh, those are the worst-looking pants I ever saw.
      What, when you buy pants like that I bet you get a free bowl of soup, huh? Oh, it looks good on you though.

    Tell everybody about the Suicide Nets at the Apple Computer Factories!

    Ah what a busy scchdule when congress is debating the conservative birth control in the health bill issue.  Why isn’t our conservative , female representative in on that debate.  Is she perhaps more liberal than we think or is she perhaps just out seeking votes ?  Perhaps manufacturing in this country wouldn’t be where it is if she were doing her job.

    She is probably looking for ‘Rainbow” colored boots

    I know you all picked up on the above  photo of LL Bean manager Jack Samson asking
    Maine war criminal Susan Collins where the weapons of mass destruction are
    that justified her vote to invade Iraq on behalf of Exxon Mobil.
    You can see Susan the pol milking this branding infomercial for all its worth
    telling Jack under her giggling breath not to worry she has the FBI  and diebold in her corner for protection,eh?

  • I suppose it ‘s more important to worry about little pink booties than it is to thank a major Maine employer for continuing to hire more Mainers even in these down times.

    She makes and has plenty of money so she can afford to deck out in LL Bean stuff.  I work full time and my health insurance and property taxes and gas prices takes most of my funds….awwwww

  • Too bad the boots she’s wearing are made overseas.

    Only the Bean Boots and Maine Hunting Shoes are made in Maine.

       Really!  Don’t expect Lisa Savage and Code Pink to get invited to the wedding, eh?

    what about the postal worker susan?

    you supported the law under bush requiring the u s postal service to fund their pension for decades and decades and decades going forward.

    no business on the planet does any such thing.

    now 183 people lose their jobs at the hampden facility and you act surprised.

    it’s your fault and you are a 2 faced liar.

    get married and get out. plenty of boots are coming your way
