  •  Tories? Didn't get the election, but gets Tories? (0+ / 0-)

    Spoiler: historical snark keyed to origin of name MR and two possible meanings of tories.

    I am curious how he took your pile one about tories. I am sure it was tories by analogy for you, but a guy who thinks elections don't matter might have taken you literally.

    So for him were Tories???

    -- the Loyalists in the American Revolution who left us  behind  except for a few spies and one traitor named Benedict Arnold
    or
    ---Tories like Cameron of 10 Downing Street, whose behind Mitt sais saw, along with the head of the British secret service, in his foreign policy gaffe.

    After all, MR, you were a contemporary of the Tories of the first sort, as a young man....
