Not debating your assessment of said guy, but for me, a filet au poivre is almost always my favorite.
It is always interesting to see what threads inspire people to join SF.
 But without statistical data we're all in the same boat!
I agree about people who order like assholes when they're splitting the check evenly or not paying at all.  Or like the example I gave when moving where my neighbors were like "oh we need to take you out to dinner before you go." and then split the check evenly despite them having booze and dessert and we didn't.  Then again, I'll pick up the whole check when out with a good friend because I rarely get to see my best friends, and it typically isn't anything particularly...
Well, maybe not the reason.  Depending on how you define liberal, they might not have even had a candidate in the general.  The President always gets the blame or the credit, but the reality is much more complicated than than.  The nature of the beast, I suppose.

I'd like Windows 10 fine if it didn't blue or red screen of death once a week for a driver error.
