We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
I love the concept of digging out of a hole. The O said something similar about four months ago which James Taranto picked up on. I sent him the pic this morning. I told him I couldn't decide if it went under "News of the Tautological" or "News of the Oxymoronic".
"We're digging out of a hole..." Yes, yes you are, and it's a hole far deeper than you can imagine, apparently. And the American taxpayers' patience has been tried to the limit. We're not going to sit patiently protecting your overweening ego anymore. We want results, cooperation from both sides of the aisle, and for you to act like a real grown-up leader of the free world for a change.
And, by the way, get rid of the flip-flops, okay? How about donning some work boots instead?
