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.
How gullible be we humans.
Democrats know that when there is bad news to announce—daily, in other words—they need only have their mouthpieces in the media headline a spurious story, like this bladder-buster red herring, to distract us voters long enough to finesse the bad news.
And they'll be none the wiser, Stanley.
