R.I.P GOP

MC DC Republican RebrandingWe are gathered here today to pay our respects to the dearly departed. They were dearly and they have departed. I’ve been here since the election and I haven’t seen the GOP move a muscle – with apologies to Richard Pryor.
The Grand Old Party, founded just prior to the Civil War and originally dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal had a healthy and robust childhood.

Republican voting for Clinton

 

To the editor;

That usually gets their attention.

Here's another clue for you all

Timeout for Life

 

 

 

Boy did I take a beating this week – pun intended.

Not physically, but by several of my so-called liberal friends who told me I’d sold my soul to the devil or worse, to the GOP or perhaps Donald Trump, because I suggested corporal punishment – in some cases – is warranted by parents.

When browbeaten by a dozen or more of these do-gooders, my first reaction was, “Hey, it wasn’t me. It was my evil twin Skippy.”

Kind of like John Lennon saying, “Here’s another clue for you all. The Walrus was Paul.”

Nobody believes it and it isn’t true anyway.
