If you weren't such a Christian man, I would start an office betting pool with you over who is the next old Republican fart to Bite the Big One and Meet their Maker.

You can abstain. I'll just let you know if my guess is right on who I'm thinking right now, if it happens ...

You should have told me that it wasn't a gun--it was a rifle that needed grabbing.

who is the next old Republican fart to Bite the Big One and Meet their Maker.

Hmmm. Why am I thinking of canned pineapple here? Hmmmm....

In all bipartisan fairness, I think black democrat Mike Espy beat Heston to the rifle grabbing photo-op. I remember Hustler or some such fine magazine doing a parody of Espy with Farrakhan's face on his body back in the 80s, under the "I'm the NRA" tagline.

But Espy didn't have the "From my cold, dead hand" line, that makes this an opportunity to snatch the rifle (symbolically) away from the NRA.

I think the general macroscopic failure of Republican policies of the past 8 years have snatched all opportunities from every rightist organization's hands long ago ...

Speaking of partisan humor, here is something that is actually funny:

Ah, Maureen--
Please don't come down to my level after I had you up there on the pedestal.
It doesn't tend to be the liberals themselves who are welfare frauds; they only create the safety net that others abuse. If I wanted to do some of the same kind of stereotyping that the "Is that Jesus?" joke does, I'd propose most fake disability claims to be made by blue-collar, Reagan Democrats, rather than by "liberals." Liberals, you know, all drive Audis to the country club to play tennis and run mini-marathons to raise funding for abortion clinics. And they march. They march a lot. It's hard to do those types of things while pretending to be a cripple. Pax. ;-)

Rodak,

Hey, you can keep me on the pedastal. Civis impersonated me. He's not going to do that anymore or I told him I am cutting out the beer in the garage time.
