    Mr. Potter (aka Paul Runa) has a bad night.

    Ryan's dream for Ameirca is one anyone who has seen that movie knows well.  It's the Pottersville of pain to working people rather than the Bedford Falls were there is some decency and people get a chance.  

    That movie's mythology is deep in our culture because it speaks to basic decency.  And Ryan's ideology is an affront to that vision of America.

        might have all been subconsciously bundled inside that 'typo' of yours.  But I admit I could be presumptuous.  Although reading all sorts of significance into anything related to Powder-Puff Paul 'The Wonker' Ryan has been an appauling pervasive error in the media and GOP for the last few years. Given recent bad news of Pauls Ryan and Rand, one must wonder if two 'wonks' will ever make a GOP Reich?

        Well, that is the sort of thing which sprang to my clouded tornadic mind from Oz.  But then I am prone to seeing entire zoos of Earth critters, alien species, mythic creatures and soap opera series in cloud shapes--and that's before applying any brain 'lubricants' to augment my mythopoeic thought processing. Oh my, look at the calendar, is it Friday already?!  Ale to the Budget Chief!  Does that sounds better than Whine to the Chief? Or Hard Apple Cider to the Chief, which I'd actually prefer...oh, look a tankard shaped cloud and one like an apple--it must be a sign to begin hoisting cider house rounds!  

        Well, Mr. 'Small-Town Values Bottoming Line' Ryan, if the tree of life is dropping barrels of sour lemons, sour grapes or dour bad apples upon you, just let it all stew a bit and make some 'red' whine, hard lemonade or apple sigh-der--at least then you could give your thinning crowd of FFFs (Formerly Fawning Friends) a pint-sized reason to pay a condolence call. Red Paul Ryan giving the GOP the blues by purplexing us all...hoist!

        Strangely (to you, perhaps), Nancy Sinatra's famous hit song (from the 60's) is playing in the juke-box of my mind, with a minor lyric alteration, 'These Boots are Made for Wonking...I'm Gonna Wonk All Over You!' and Lord knows, we do need hip boots to slog through Ryan's Trail of Fiscal Fail...and thankfully, the Senate has finally put on some big budget boots and booted Ryan budget to the curb.

        So let's all raise a libation towards getting Ron Zerban a better shot at Ryan's seat. Shoot...I said I'll need a chaser...wait, or is that salt and biting a lime...dang it, I forget, was the waitress's name Marguerrrrrita, or is it already time to call a cab? No Laddy, I'm not just a liberal pirate, I'm a Progressive Pirate! What? It's Time to Wonk the Plank? Blaggards!

        When life gives you wingnuts, make wingnut butter!
