    Michael, your link to the article is broken.

    Just when I was beginning to think that the Conservative Right had a genetic predisposition to being unfunny... (Anyone rembember the Fox Network's failed "1/2 Hour News Hour?")

    O'Rourke is the Right's only legitimate answer to John Stewart and Steven Colbert because he understands that "comedy" begins with acknowledging pain, not creating it.

  3. Blogger Tom Strong Says:

    And we accused Clinton of lying about sex, which all men spend their lives doing, starting at 15 bragging about things we haven't done yet, then on to fibbing about things we are doing, and winding up with prevarications about things we no longer can do.

    LOL! One of many wonderful sentences in that article.
