Poppy still has not risen; so much for the second coming. The hagiography for a war criminal is enough to gag a maggot.
Axios morning email thingie is heaped with maudlin pablum about the memorial service and I liked the bit about how Poppy will be put in a baggage car when he arrives in Texas, and they will choo-choo him in a circle so that the locals can gape at him.
Anyway, I thought a reading of Dr. Hunter S. Thompson’s eulogy of Richard Nixon (He Was A Crook) is appropriate for today. There just is not muscular prose like this any more, and it is a shame that our political press is so predictably bland. Imagine what he would write about Bush?
