  •  I Had Dinner With Mr. and Mrs Dallas Texas (9+ / 0-)

    on Amtrak in early January 2001.  I was forced to go down to TX because my mother was in the hospital. It was a community seating situation, and I found myself opposite of two bobblyhead repugs.

    W had been declared the winner of the 2000 election, and our dinner conversation turned to politics.

    Mrs. Dallas was over the moon that Baby Bush had won because "he was the kind of man who had pulled himself up by his boot straps" !!!  I remarked that if Bush had bootstraps at all, they probably matched the silver spoon in his mouth.

    I promptly ordered another wine and changed the subject to France.  Mrs. Dallas hated her experience in Paris because she had been tricked into ordering horse meat for dinner.  

    While I nodded sympathetically, I silently blessed that French waiter, and cheerfully described many of the delicious culinary delights I had enjoyed in France because I had always found the French to be warm, attentive, and gracious people.  

    I still laugh at that ridiculous couple.  

    Thank you for sharing your experience with the bankster.  He probably doesn't get confronted often enough with people who do not share his views.
