Image: Artist as yet unknown. Scan of original 11x17" graphic, swiped from a telephone pole in the Glassell Park/Eagle Rock area, Los Angeles, CA. Nov 4, '08 Yes, it happened. I didn't expect Johnny Mac to concede as early as he did. We'd just finished dinner and were about to head out when Karen said "lets check, I don't want to hear this in a cab". So we did, and saw the live video stream. This is all too perfect! I never expected to see this in my lifetime—esp after the last 8 yrs of hardboiled willful ignorance, thievery, criminality and pasty-faced incompetence. Obama's speech was simply perfect. All the right points, and didn't waste people's time saying it. Oh, the work that lies ahead. In the meantime, I'm savoring the joy of seeing the hosers and posers of the Johnny Mac Road show [Sarah the Impaler, Joe the Plumber, Willie the Pimp, and all the Angry White Faces] choke on a fucking chicken bone. Game over, bitches!

Ask No Questions, Tell No Lies

...back in 1980, I was subscribed to the National Review by my elderly grandmother. So I used to come home after working nights, crack open a Heineken, roll a joint, and read it. Surreal. One day an NR survey arrived in the mail. Actually, two. The killer question the GOP had that year was "Who would be the best candidate to defeat Jimmy Carter?" I took a long hit on the joint, and wrote in my answers. Jane Fonda, and Alfredo Stroessner. I'm sure somebody was amused.
