During my usual ranting & raving over our rediculous political climate, & witnessing the demise of our Republic as we knew it, & having to take too many anti-depression & anxiety pills, I suddenly came to a logical conclusion.
It is all a cruel joke on us. The thing to do is to grin & bear it. I have no more political heros, except Dennis Kucinich & Bernie Sanders, who are voices crying in the wilderness.
The last remaining vestiges of moderation in the GOP, Rep. Steven Latourette (R-OH) & Sen. Olympia Snowe, (R-ME) are leaving the Congress as they no longer can stand a gridlocked do-nothing Congress, even though both of them would be handily re-elected.
I am going to fall back on humor & satire as a means of survival. I no longer have Molly Ivins, George Carlin & Gore Videal to count on as my heros, as they are departed, but I can still rely on their recorded brilliance. I still have Jon Stewart, Stephen Colbert, & Andy Borowitz to rely on. These are my heros, & I will continue to enjoy them until the guys in white coats come to take me away. (I think that they work for DHS now.)
Come join me in LA-LA Land. Smile. Things could be worse.
