A couple things I heard that tickled me

I’m listening to the radio on the way to an appointment today and Jeff Farias was chatting with a caller who was frustrated by the intractibility of right wingers, who cling to their support of Dubya despite the glaring evidence of this administration’s suckage.   She was describing how her own Republican parents simply refuse to budge now matter how hard she tries to reason with them.  When Jeff asked her who they were supporting for the GOP nom, she said they favored Fred Thompson.  As far as she could tell it was because he’s a Southerner.    

“You know, he say’s fixin’ and stuff.” 

Guess you had to be there. 

Then my pal called and told me she worked the Dem booth at the AZ State Fair this past weekend.  A large man (who turned out to be a locally prominent Republican) approached the booth.  My friend said that the first thing she noticed was the food stains on his shirt.   He asked her where the Mexican flag was. 


The way she handled it is a lesson on how to take control of a situation.  She said she simply smiled, looked him straight in the eye, and said nothing.  She kept looking directly at him for what felt like 10 to 15 seconds.  And smiling.   It must have gotten to him because he apologized and said he guessed he shouldn’t have said that.  She replied, “You’re right, you shouldn’t have.” 

I’m in awe.


*Is it really any wonder so many of these people don’t grasp that Stephen Colbert is a joke on them?
