Morton's Fork

Siting on the sofa
On a Sunday afternoon;
Goin' to the candidates' debate
Laugh about it, shout about it,
When you've got to choose;
Either way you look at it, you lose

-- Simon and Garfunkel, "Mrs. Robinson" (1968)

(Cartoon: Mr Fish, Now A Regular Contributor In The Nation)

When the practice of politics becomes little more than deciding the color of posters advertising candidates, both of whose actual policies benefit a ruling elite, the question in America is not, How did we come to this?, but "Whaddaya talkin' about? Ahhh, go live in France, ya cheese monkey."

Please feel free to thrill all humankind with the brilliance and importance of You. And forgo all civility (especially the passive-aggressive sort, aggression masquerading as mildness) . . . you are, after all, anonymous.

But, consider: Dogs have short attention spans, don't tolerate bullies, and we're notoriously thin-skinned -- so make sense, be brief, and play nice, or I'll bite you and pee on your leg. Bark Bark Bark Bark Bark Bark.
