The mind is a terrible thing to take a dump on. . . . Please come CAPTION W!!!!

George ("They didn't ask Picasso hard questions. Why me?&quot Bush is saying: "Bob, they are simply wrong and for one good reason: The Iraqi War saved hundreds and thousands of lives all over the world, including millions in the United States. . . . It's called 'The Butterfly Effect," and it says that if Saddam was even thinking about weapons of mass destruction it was just as though he had destroyed our country and democracy and everything. . . . It's like dominoes or nuclear confusion or something. . . You do the math. . . . Don't they teach anything in school anymore? . . . It's like the Dim Ages all over again."

Here come the Fudge! . . .Please come CAPTION Andrew Napolitano!!!

Andrew ("Child servitude is not only in the Constitution but in the Bible as well!&quot Napolitano is saying: "This so-called Net Neutrality is anything but. In fact it's exactly the opposite of what it sounds like. . . . It's actually 'Net Centrality," and you know where the 'centrality' will be of course: . . . in the Oval Office for the next two years then down in the hood with the thugs and wanta-be ganstas that Obama has formed into his new Black Panther Strike Force. . . . These guys wouldn't know 'neutrality' anymore than a virulent racist would suspect he might be prejudiced! . . . I can't get over these clowns."


The above CAPTION is based on the following Media Matters story:

About skip fox

I am retired, now a professor emeritus at University of Louisiana at Lafayette, where I taught in the English department for 37 years. I've written 4 chapbooks and 5 full-sized books (all listed as poetry though many include other genres as well), including _Sheer Indefinite: Selected Poems, 1991-2012 (Univ. of New Orleans Press, 2012). I've also written a 500+ page bibliography of three contemporary poets: Robert Creeley, Ed Dorn, and Robert Duncan. I am writing now, both fiction and poetry, more now than ever. My first vote for President of the United States was for Dick Gregory in 1968 (Bowling Green, Ohio). Favorite quote: "It's easy to be an idealist if you don't have to mind the evidence, but no one said it was supposed to be easy" (Richard LaPauvre).
