According to plan, I haven’t written anything overtly political in quite a while, but this jumped out at me today, rendering me unable to resist a reaction:
I’d rather be doing this than in some stuffy old political office. I’d rather be out here bein’ free!
Republicans are masters at drumming up fear by ranting constantly about how the country is under dire threat from enemies, both abroad (terrorists) and here at home (Democrats). Listening to them, you’d think Republicans would be working round the clock in bunkers to protect us from these threats. Instead, we have George W. Bush and his record-breaking days of vacation, Rush Limbaugh and his recreational prescription drug use, and Sarah Palin on a dog sled.
It reminds me of this clip, from Michael Moore’s “Fahrenheit 9/11″:
Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain!
