First in Series — Ghosts of Politicians Past

December 13, 2009

Hard to believe people like this were veeps, senators, secrataries of state, etc… back before Joe McCarthy

Henry A. Wallace

I’ll be following this one up with lots more of the people who made organized labor, weekends, financial regulation, and 90% taxation on the very rich mainstream… Not like I expect anyone in the biz today to be ashamed of claiming the mantle of someone like this, but it’s useful for calibrating your stench-o-meter….


We are a very odd civilization these days….

Star Trek has totally taken over our government.

More thoughts on President Spock

December 5, 2009

On second thought, it just occurred to me that if Obama is Mr. Spock, then Howard Dean must be Captain Kirk! I take it all back. We need Captain Kirk! The needs of the many must outweigh the needs of the few — or the One. 2016 can’t come fast enough.

Drop dead and go bankrupt.

MSNBC has this story comparing President Obama to Mr. Spock, of Star Trek fame.

I’ve heard this one before, and before, and before. It’s starting to feel a bit like Star Trek: the original series does to me these days, like, How many times have I seen this episode?

Look, I’m sure glad Spock and not old Blood and Guts Kirk is finally in command of the (free) Enterprise. Can we watch some thing else, now, please? I think there’s Twilight Zone marathon on Channel 11. Somebody pass the remote!
