Hey -- one more thing.
Probably a week ago I heard this very funny thing on NPR. They had reported on the "freedom" fries and "freedom" toast at the house? congresional? cafeteria, and someone had sent in a response, which went something like this:
I they should call them "stupid" fries and "stupid" toast. And I think they shouold name the second Tuesday in November "stupid" day, when we all get together and elect stupid right-wing politicians to represent us in Congress ....
I though it was hilarious. Partly because it's exactly the sort of thing I would say. partly because, in her raging incohence, it sort of doesn't make sense -- stupid fries might sort of imply that you think the french are stupid.
But mostly because it's so dead on -- here we are on the verge of going to war for no good reason, and what is the congress doing but dicking around with the cafeteria menu?
design by simplify.
