So Long, Piggy


"I foresee that man will resign himself each day to new abominations, that soon only soldiers and bandits will be left."

When does he get his Congressional Medal of Honor? Oh well, I guess only the troops have to "stay the course."

Actually, that's the Presidential Medal of Freedom. And it's already at the engraver's.
But someday, I hope to see this repugnant, greedy little weasel wearing one that says "Disgraced Advisor to the worst President in history, executed for high crimes and misdemeanors against the Constitution and the people of the United States."
What's that? Oh, Pelosi said execution is off the table, too. Damn.

Best use of a Borges quote ever--and yes, I think Piggy is exactly who he had in mind when he wrote that. If only we needed to send a secret signal to allies in some far off country to bomb a town called "Rove."

I guess you would rather close your eyes and pretend the world is "Utopia". While we're at it, let's raise taxes so we can help the lazy.
