I am honored and flummoxed (yes, I just wanted to use the word "flummoxed") to be asked to guest post while Cliff is secluded in his new office in his new home with his new baby and his not-so-new computer trying to finish his very new book. I've never done this before, although I am a writer. And I use the term loosely.
So, consider this an opportunity to see what it's like when lunatic off the street is given full rein to run off at the mouth at the expense of the superb quality and decency of an otherwise excellent blog.
And speaking of lunatics, let's make a list of them. That's a relatively easy way to ease into this fish-outta-water blogging thing. Feel free to add to the list. My time is limited, and so is my mental capacity.
The List-o'-Lunatics (and their qualifications):
KKKarl Rove--For putting our entire democracy at risk. And for looking like that.
Gonzo--So much incompetence, too little time and space to go into the redundant details. And for his creepy Peter Lorre impression.
Cheney-- Main Entry: lu·na·tic
1 a : affected with lunacy : INSANE b : designed for the care of insane persons < lunatic asylum>
2 : wildly foolish lunatic idea>
- lunatic noun
3 : See Cheney, Richard Bruce
George W. Bush-- Killing small living things as a child; Killing larger living things as an adult; Lifelong influence of The Quaker Oats Man--er, Bar; The Rapture. 'Nuff said.
