The whole is greater than the sum of the parts

Now I get what that means!

Big talk from Weepy John

Bob Belvedere spots John Boehner referring to some of his fellow Republicans as "knuckleheads". Anybody think he's talking about establishment Republicans?

Personally, I believe Boehner is just jealous; he is a mere chucklehead.

Happy Citizenship/Constitution Day

We need more citizens who are familiar with the U.S. Constitution, so here's our key document for review.

Today is also the 30th anniversary of Mrs. Paco's U.S. citizenship. She was sworn in along with a massive crowd of other new citizens in a ceremony in the Orange Bowl (presided over by then-Vice President George H.W. Bush).

Ah, 1984! Reagan, prosperity and the beginning of the end for Soviet communism. Not to mention that the Detroit Tigers won the World Series. A great year.

In short, teleprompted rhetoric, with plenty of let-me-be-perfectly-clear emphatics, can sound enough like a foreign policy that enough Americans will believe something is being done while the crisis naturally abates.
Gormless twit. How many years before the moving truck pulls up in front of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue? Around two and a half? Lordie, hurry sundown.
