Former Clinton loyalist, right? Walked out in '96 after the prostitution scandal with his toe-sucking ways. Wrote a tell-all. Ever since he's been this hardcore right wing nutjob.
How does that happen? Is he still THAT aggrieved over the Clintons tossing him out over his own fuck-up?
I'm seriously asking, I was a kid in those days and I don't know much of the backstory on Morris.
Some people simply live to make the biggest names for themselves. They have no integrity. They live for fame and money. He had an opportunity to make more of an impression on the public as a political asshole, and he took it.
Morris was always a gun for hire, he was never operating from a shred of political conviction. He worked for Trent Lott before he worked for Clinton.
The bigger question is why did Clinton hire him in the first place.
To know what the opposition was thinking R3. That is what Hillary said in her book.
He was a right leaning sort of Republican in the 1990s. Bill brought him in to help with re-election and rebranding after the 1994 midterms. Morris had fights with the WH staff, and Hllary. After he was forced out, he became a wingnut.
That mother fucker is off the rails! I think he's suffered a mental collapse...or he feels so betrayed by the Clintons, he's willing to say and do whatever it takes to make a career trashing Democrats (his own version of a "scorched earth" policy).
He was sexy back in the day, but then he got fat and crazy.
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
