Bourgeois Madness

It's always good to start off the day with something humorous. Bob Lancaster, in an op-ed piece in this week's Arkansas Times, explains why the town hall folks are so mad.

Here are a few of my favorites.

You're mad they let common people with rashes, cooties, and probably v.d. into the church pool.

You're mad that you used up all your lifelines while the questions were still real easy.

You're mad because it's so undemocratic, and just plain rude, that your presence is going to be required at this Last Judgment business, even if you don't feel like it, or have a prior commitment, or they don't have a ramp.

You're mad because death is going to screw you out of your Second Amendment gun rights. (No, despite what you've heard from the NRA, they don't allow firearms on the Other Side. Not even Yosemite Sam could get one in.)

You're mad because someone else's 6-year-old child always beats out yours in these beauty contests that doll up baby girls to look like whores.

Meanwhile, Senator Blanche Lincoln held a town hall meeting yesterday at Arkansas Tech University in Russellville, and that went down fairly typically.
Lincoln faced occasional shouting as she spoke before more than 800 people packed into an Arkansas Tech University arena Wednesday. At one point, an audience member referred to advisers to President Barack Obama as "communists."

These people are mad.
