“That would be one of the most powerful political speeches of all time,” Oliver said. “I’m telling you: If you drop out in order to teach America a lesson, you would not be a loser. You would be a legend. There’d be a federal holiday in your honor, and it would be called ‘Guy Who Decided Not to Be President’s Day.’ ”
As a political comedian, John Oliver does not tend to traffic in serious proposals. Which is a good thing, because this one’s got some flaws.
It’s been awhile since we’ve posted LWT rebuttals, but when it’s coming from WaPo, you might as well take heed.
Throughout the next two days, Oliver spread the misinformation among his boevik. He met with each of them individually and told them where the next shipment of Vertigo would be on Thursday evening. Of course there were no new shipments of Vertigo on Thursday evening, but he instead would be watching by remote surveillance to see which location would get raided.
He hadn’t talked to Felicity or Digg about it since, but they both seemed resigned to the eventuality. They didn’t have a choice because Oliver didn’t either.
At first, they were at
the Keating House, wrapping up work with
the others when Oliver came in. He had stayed
for maybe fifteen minutes before Laurel decided that they all go out for drinks
when they were finished. Connor tried to protest, but Oliver
and his damn cheer won him over like it always does.
“Oliver, we all insist
that you come with us, it’s always fun when you’re around,” encouraged
“No guys, he’s
probably exhausted, and he drove all the
way here. Let’s just go home?” nudged Connor.
“No, no I think it’ll
be fun; I love hanging out with you all!” Oliver said, eyes brighter than
So here they were, in a booth near the back of the bar
laughing and joking and nursing drinks. Huh, Connor thought, sometimes it felt right to act like adults with a life for once.
the third harry potter movie is one of the worst because they didn’t have oliver winning the cup like it would’ve just taken 5/10 minutes to show it yet they had time to completely redo the entire scenery and find a dumbledore replacement

2p usuk: Oliver won't eat raw meat in front of Allen, though he does love to tear into a human arm. Allen doesn't like the smell of blood, so Oliver washes up always. Also: The neighbors see Oliver go into the house with blood on him and get worried so they go over and ask what happened. Allen tells them that Oliver likes to go hunting, and that he had killed a bear that had almost attacked him. Oliver does like hunting, but not for the animals in the forest ;3)
