Look At That S Car Go (up in flames)

Well, well, well. France is burning. It's about time. They are just a bunch of assholes anyway, right? At least its popular these days hate them. I bet if you did a survey of young people and asked them who we fought in WWII, those who knew what WWII was would probably answer France. Listen to any talk radio blowhards or Fox News, and you would get the impression that France was an enemy! It's just fun these days to dis the Frogs. And they do look down their noses at us. So fuck 'em. I don't hate the French, though. I was there once and they seemed nice enough to me. But I would never by a Renault.

Some Americans actually hate the French not because of their Renaults but because they had the temerity not to fall for the whole Iraq WMD malarkey being perpetrated by America and Great Britain. We actually changed the name of "French Fries" to "Freedom Fries" in the Senate commissary to show them a thing or two (how fucking embarrassing is that? I know we shouldn't give a rat's perineum about what the rest of the world thinks about us but we must really look like a bunch of rubes to them. By the way, the Senator who came up with that freedom fries idea is now anti-war and regrets the whole thing.)

That whole cowboy "either you’re with us or your’re with the terrorists" line of bullshit is just ridiculous. Maybe that works in Texas but not the rest of the world. It just so happens France like the majority of other countries was not convinced as easily as the American public about the necessity to go to war with Iraq. And guess what - turns out they were right! That's even more embarrassing. Almost as embarrassing as owning a Renault.

I haven't really followed this whole riots in France thing all that closely but here is a bit of irony - The French (and the right wing in America) hate multiculturalism. And that seems to be the problem over there. Those immigrants aren’t being assimilated and their culture is being suppressed. We in America embrace multiculturalism (at least we did) and our immies are behaving themselves. Seems America isn't as backwards as people think. At least in this area. And even a Chevy Vega is more reliable than a Renault. Now that’s saying something.

Hey Bob, have you planned ahead to when the Rebubs aren't in the majority in the senate and there's a Demmy president? What will you write about then?

The Dems are far more fun to write about. I just wish I had a blog during the Clinton years.

I dunno.
I imagine something like:
"You know, President [insert new Demmy here] did this...etc.
Good thing it wasn't back in Dubya's day. I remember when he, etc....the Rebublicans, etc....Patriot act, etc....you voted him in, etc....your rights, etc....War in Iraq, etc....all going to hell, etc....Jesus was no conservative that's for sure, etc....Fuggin' Ashcroft, etc....my band sang about his bowel movements, etc....Condaleeza can suck, etc....but back to the new President. The bill he signed yesterday was one that Dubya would have never signed, matter of fact Dubya once, etc....Patriot act....you'll all fucking see one day, etc....Dubya probably would go see the Stones but they're going to die any day, so he's stupid, etc....it's cool to vote republican these days...wait, I mean back in Dubya's day, etc....my 'phews are all conservative, even when they say they're not, etc....War in Iraq, etc....Texas, etc....Back when Dubya, Rove, etc....I'm not republican or democrat, I'm a librarian...Dubya DUBYA."

Mine of course will still tell everyone how wrong they are about things that really matter, like bands, movies and guitar.
CodGod's will have exhausted stupid stories from his past and will dredge up stories from ours, like injuries to hands (something all 3 of us have good stories about, actually...Cod, get on that).

Hey, what did I do?

Leave me out of your lover's quarrels.

BFace - The only reason I make fun of the Republicans is to get you going. It's just too damned easy.

Yeah that's it. Right. Your whole damn blog is designed just to "get me going."

It sure gets me going, too.

Always does.

It's bound to, being the staunch conservative republican that I am.

Anyway, I was joking around. My jokes are never funny. Sure seemed funny to me when I typed it though.

Always does...

Try something along the lines of "I just flew in from Cleveland. Boy, my arms are tired!" That always gets 'em.
