We don't look for trouble.
But you don't want to screw with us either.
Which brings me to Howard Dean. You may have read the news that Dean is destined to become the chairman of the Democratic National Committee. Personally, I couldn't think of anyone more appropriate. This lunatic should be the posterboy for what has become the asylum for every idiot and wacked-out psychotic in America today. It just seems fitting that the Democratic party and Mr. Aaaarrgrgrgghhh!!!! should be as one.
The Democrats have said some really ugly things about Republicans - especially President Bush and the late President Reagan - in recent years. And the charges they have made regarding our efforts to (a) take over the world, (b) force little children in our public schools to pray to baby Jesus, (c) take money from those who don't have it (?) and give it to those who have all of it (?), and (d) require that all young women who are promiscuous and have an unwanted pregnancy actually give birth --- well, actually now that I look at it, I think maybe I am in favor of all the above after all.
But we've learned that when old Howard opens his mouth, stupid comes dribbling out. And I giggle. He's very entertaining.
But this is on a different level.
I hate the Republicans and everything they stand for. (link)It is not my place to defend the Republican party. But my guess is Mr. Dean was referring to me rather than them. He, like all Democrats, associate conservatives with the Republican party when, in fact, many of us are much too conservative to be good Republicans. It is everything we stand for that he hates, I believe.
Now I can live with the fact that Howard Dean hates me. Just like the loudmouth in the local tavern late at night with whom you come to an informal truce - stay over there and your Bud will taste a whole lot better - I will get through the day even knowing that Howie hates my guts.
But be careful, Howard. Talk tough if it helps get you chicks. But you don't want to act on that hatred. We may seem like a slovenly and docile bunch but we are perfectly willing - and prepared - to defend ourselves, should you decide to do something stupid. When finally provoked, we can get downright nasty.
No. You really don't want to go down that road.
