I like my political commentary with plenty of dork references:
|"Frist gets personally surrounded by protesters|
|Friday, 13 May 2005|
| ... after deciding to buy shoes in a store directly beneath the office of Americans United to Protect Social Security.|
Obviously he's getting his forward intelligence from Ahmed Chalabi.
As the story notes, Frist blocked traffic by illegally double-parking his SUV in order to buy $530 worth of shoes. And this is the selfless public servant middle America is supposed to trust to gut their Social Security all good and proper, the same way he used to hack apart cats for his own amusement back when he was in med school.
Y'all ever feel like this is an episode of Sliders, and we've all just sort of slipped one notch, over into a parallel universe where 1/3 of humanity has had its morality destroyed by a weird mental virus that communicates itself by forcing its victims to repeat hollow, factually-incorrect, virus-serving platitudes until those in earshot are all infected, too?
I am so getting tired of Spock having a beard all the time."
