A Prarie Home Conundrum

I'm giving up on the news. Not going anywhere near a radio or television. And limiting my internet travels to the personal, not the political. Close to 50% of my demographically significant countrymen still swallow with mind-numbing servility the idea that the Worst President Ever is somehow a "man of conviction, willing to make the tough decisions".

What, pray tell, is their threshold for failure? What besides a blowjob would elicit the slightest perturbation, let alone a demand for impeachment, in the flag-addled minds of these red state imbeciles?

I mean, how far do things have to go to get Garrison Keillor pissed off?

what's the cure for walking around certain The Morons are Winning by a nose? Pie. Yes, you need pie. Once you learn how to roll out a pie shell it will all make perfect sense. i swear it.*

Ouch. That Garrison Keillor rant had to be the most painful-to-read, well written rant I've read in a long time.

Excuse me while I go and try to drown my sorrows in scotch. Golliard would agree if only she hadn't stopped drinking. I'll have a drink for her. Meanwhile, pie is second best.

scratch one up for the dems, Dick Speaks. Dick Speaks Bad. mwahaha.

PS- while i see that many are concerned about the $$ cost of the war in iraq, i find myself more concerned with the American Death Toll of 1,003. somehow that says more to me...

Sounds like the ravings of a lunatic still angry about Reagan kicking communism in the ass. Just so we are clear on gratness of presidents, Reagan was one of the top four presidents of all time. Ranking in the same category as Washington, Lincoln, and Roosevelt.

In the same mold Bush has taken risks that were demanded of him in his time. Washington Faced down the redcoats, Lincoln united us, Roosevelt destroyed Nazism, Reagan brought down the wall and the idea that communism can work, and Bush is facing down terrorism. Each of these men were/are war time presidents. When we are at peace we can stomach men with no political balls who lie under oathe and bring shame to the greatest office in the land (in case you dems are too dense to understand I am aluding to Clinton). Now is the time for strength and determination. Now is the time for a president who stays the course; not for one who jumps ship on his ideas when they become unpopular. In the immortal words of Abraham Lincoln, "you don't change horses in the middle of the race." Especially when your horse is kicking ass.

I always heard is was "You don't change Dicks when you're getting screwed" from the old Nixon campaign. Or something like that.

I like it so much better when a president can get his rocks off the old fashioned way -- with an intern -- instead of the other old fashioned way -- by going out and killing people. Make love not war.
