The Election

Electing Republicans at this point is like returning to a surgeon who “accidentally” amputated your leg because your new doctor has been unable to orchestrate a miracle that would allow you to grow a replacement.

    Best analogy I've ever heard on the point. Incipient violist? I'd like to hear more about this.

    Great minds think alike. I wrote in my blog, "Although I am bummed by the backlash of the unwashed masses returning the Republican weasels to the hen house to finish off the last of the chickens, I am more concerned that a local initiative to allow liquor to be sold in grocery stores seems to be failing."

    Hi THC! Thank you very much! I'll tell you the violin story one of these days. It's long and on the boring side, so be careful what you wish for.Tim, So you wantet to do away with the state liquor stores? I was torn on that one. Still am. I agree that the State probably shouldn't be in the liquor sales business, but, on the other hand, I don't think this is the time to be cutting off another revenue source to the State. Being torn on this means only that I have the opportunity to be unhappy regardless of the outcome.

    Great analogy–I'm feeling the same way. Depressed and heartsick, but also angry and disbelieving!

    Margaret,Sometimes my fellow Americans shock me. We seem to have such short memories. Or such stupid reasoning. Which is the better conclusion? Probably both are equally troubling in this case…
