    get elected??  Ignorant, dumb-ass,white trash, racist, unreconstructed Confederates.  I run out of pejoratives in describing those cretins.  

    The last sound on earth will be the squawk of an optimist.

      than our share of morans here in every level of government. Still,  I think "Confederates" is used incorrectly since the states listed below were NOT members of the Confederacy:

      Illinois
      Iowa
      Minnesota
      Michigan
      Wisconsin
      California
      New Hampshire
      Pennsylvania
      Nevada
      New York
      Ohio
      Alaska

      Because, frankly, redneck stupidity knows no ethnic or geographical boundaries, as my husband observed after regaling me with the tale of the Saudi Elvis clone he ran into in 1990 (it's really very hard  to say" Thank You. Thank you very much" in a Southern drawl when you have a Saudi accent, and you cannot wear a keffiyeh with a pompadour, which also looks, well, silly with a thobe)

      The last time we mixed religion and politics people got burned at the stake.

      History merely repeats itself; it doesn't cure its own ills. That is the burden of the present.
