And what about all that tea party tripe? Bogus photos and misquoted news agencies. To quote the esteemed Senator from South Carolina: "You lie!"
I keep thinking of the Glinda the Good Witch of the North telling Dorothy that her ruby slippers must be very powerful indeed or the Wicked Witch of the West wouldn't want them so badly. The righties sure want those slippers.
Yeah? Well then call me the Good Witch of Cleveland.
On to Obama. No, I don't agree with everything he's done, but he still has my support. This country is so diseased and so far off course to the right that I can't expect miracles, but I still have hope.
And I am in 100 percent agreement with James Carville about Latimer's new book Speech-Less. I may have no love for George W. Bush, but the President has a right to a casual life. If he is not actively "on the record" his aides ought to respect that. Latimer's a turd for publishing Bush's off-the-cuff comments. (Although I've got to admit it, if Dubya called Obama "this cat," it alters my opinion of the man. I love it when a guy calls another guy "cat." Always have.)
And if Bush didn't make those comments, Latimer's an even bigger turd. Either way he gives us writers a bad name.
I'm off to recharge my magic wand.
