10:13 AM - I think what they meant is that ZD has the mojo, huevos, etc. to fight shady government corruption.

ZD - my apologies, I didn't make the connection with that and the nomination. I will remove that nomination.

Your survey does not open completely. I was able to fill out only 1/2--fix it. I want to be able to vote for Zuma Dogg.

WHAT GOOD ARE BIG "BALLS" "MOJO" OR "HUEVOS" when there's no brainpower to steer them in a productive direction.

Get serious! The doofus just ends up stepping on his own apparati.

Being dum at least means you have a brain. Ed Reyes has no brain so its impossible for him to be dum. His head is empty.

10:46, Christmas morning and you're obsessing over Zuma? Don't you see that being a slight emotional problem on your part? You are really unraveling right before everyone's eyes.

Maybe 10:46 is Jewish?

You got a problem with that 11:23?

I didn't see anyone bellyaching about anti-Zuma remarks on the first day of Chanukah . . .(you religious bigot!)

Or anytime during Ramadan for that matter.

Now go back an suck on your stale candy canes and think about your own intolerant obsessions.

12 noon is wrapped a little too tightly. In my opinion, it doesn't matter what religion you are: Christmas Day in America is more than a religious event. And yes, dare I say, no matter what your religious belief, if you are blogging that stuff about Zuma at 10:46, Christmas morning, you have a problem like any addict. I'm sure everyone reading this, with the exception of you, knows exactly what I am saying.
