We Can't Make It Here Anymore

Killer new song from James McMurtry:
There's a Vietnam vet with a cardboard sign
Sittin' there by the left turn line
Flag on the wheelchair flappin'in the breeze
One leg missin' and both hands free

No one's payin' much mind to him
The VA budget's just stretched so thin
And there's more comin' back from the Mideast War
We can't make it here anymore

That big old building was a textile mill
It fed our kids and paid our bills
But they turned us out and they closed the doors
We can't make it here anymore

Billmon's Back:
Osama Endorses Bush
Osama's no slouch at information warfare. I'm sure he understands that the impact of a tape like this one on the mass mind is mainly subliminal, if not hormonal. By plastering his face over every TV in America for the next couple of days, he's given Bush a priceless gift -- a boogeyman with which to frighten that last sliver of undecided voters into rejecting change. Al Qaeda, it seems, has evolved into one hell of an effective 527 organization.
Read it all.

Then again, Ron Reagan, Jr. says:
"Anyone who changes their vote based on what Osama bin Laden did or didn't say deserves a big slap."
Thanks to the Suburban Guerrilla for catching that one.

Help is on the Way

Dear Neighbor,

We noticed the Bush/Cheney 04 sign in your yard. We just want you to know that help is available.

There are lots of very good mental health professionals in our community. No one should have to face this kind of problem all by themself.

Whether your politics are the product of drug abuse, acute paranoia, or you are just plain delusional, we urge you to get help. With a little therapy and perhaps some medication, you can become part of the reality-based community. You'll see that our country faces serious problems, most of them created by the current administration. You'll want a president who can actually solve problems, not one who stumbles blindly, taking America from one disaster into another. And you'll want a president who can speak in complete, cohernent sentances.

Once you get professional help, you'll start to feel better about yourself. And we, your neighbors, will feel better about you, too.

Have a nice day.

Slow Learners

Last week the Phoenix-based Arizona Republic decided to buck the national trend and endorse George W. Bush for re-election.

Their rational was some sort of horse shit about recapturing the spirit of national unity that followed 9/11.

I was reminded by a long-time Arizona resident that the Republic also endorsed Richard Nixon for re-election in 1972, a full four months after the Watergate break-in.

Can you say "Slow learners?"
