    ..."there has existed a state of WAR between our Dems and the Imperial forces of Paul Ryan", which begs the question, why the 13 month reaction time from us? And why am I just reading a FP diary about it now? The only thing we have to fear is how long will it take us respond with overwhelming force the next time they attack us with another gratuitous, self-serving, publicity stunt photo-op?

    All I can say is, "I'm glad our carriers were at sea"-or we could've lost the war! Obama/Biden "broke their Imperial Naval code" and the repubs never knew what hit them. Mittens/Ryan lost. But don't let the fact the repubs never read the headlines: "Repubs defeated, unconditionally surrender on the decks of the Battleship Missouri" lull you into a false peace-or a false security. They still think and act like they already nullified the 2012 election, that we weren't the victors, but the ones defeated. And day after day they are winning by a well-financed, brilliant guerrilla war of lies and deception; we still fall into their obstructionist, seditionist trap. Any war is decided in the battlefield of the mind and the will, long before the first shot is fired on the campaign trial and the final votes tallied on election day.

      I was tempted to suggest an annual revisiting of this mess every Thanksgiving. Sort of like the "Alice's Restaurant" massacre without the endless twelve-bar singalong. Because I don't know about you, but it gives me something else to be thankful for...
      Dear Lord: Thank you for making my brain and heart work better than the Paul Ryans of this world. Amen.

          I was reading this diary yesterday, and I started hearing Arlo's tune, and was wishing I was witty enough to set it up and rewrite it, based on this clip of Ryan, attempting to wash dishes.

          Boy, when you're done with that photo-op, please take your seat on the Group W Bench!
          I tell you, it warms the cockles of my heart. Alas, I finally determined his pathetic attempt at "being Regular Man" wouldn't come close to filling almost nineteen minutes of song ;)

            ...a little brighter. I've been down hard for a solid week. This cold is kicking my ass. But not one to let anything hold me back, as long as my lungs still pump air I wouldn't miss these informative diaries and all the fine commentary. Have a Happy Thanksgiving!
