Ah, The Long Strange Strip rides again. Or possibly Nephew of Long Strange Strip. Whichever, I always love it. Remember, Zip, wherever you are, there you go.
So Zonker heads out on another road trip. Call me when he finds America.
"Cheer down" is a phrase I first heard on a George Harrison record about twenty-five years ago. It's a relief to not be the sole occupant of Obscure Desultory Cultural Detritus Island.
It is Sunday morning. It's a gray day. The bird feeder is empty (with birds staring towards the house, waiting for the bird seed from the sky) and the day was looking singularly unattractive. Then I clicked on Today's Video and was transported from bleary Michigan to someplace where rain is composed of beautiful voices and stunning poetry. I come to the site for my daily dose of snarkish insight, but sometimes, like today, you give me beauty. Thanks.
Jeb could improve the family name by calling for war crime charges against Dubya.
At last! It's about time someone "smoked 'em out of their holes"! Vices and all.
I loved and laughed about the characterisation of this presidential family today. Probably much closer to the truth than one might fear.
Looks to me like the man who hasn't changed a bit is good ol' GBT. Still stripping down public figures to comically exaggerated stereotypes, just like he rendered Calvin Hill and Brian Dowling all those many years ago. It's all hugely entertaining, and even provocative. As long as we laugh at the sly humor and don't mistake the entertaining caricatures for the men. Thank you for for the years of thoughtful chuckles!
Thank you for the Sunday, April 14th strip.
Re Sid's GOP Celebrity Task Force: When I Googled "Republican Hoillywood actors" I got this list. Of the first 25, eight are deceased. Charlton Heston is number two, and it includes James Cagney and Larry the Cable Guy!
GBT has just managed to insult everyone in Hollywood who has ever taken a political position out of princlple. Lovely.
AOWG has a nice ring to it. Maybe Nugent would front that band. They could open for NKOTB.
I'm a progressive, but even I know that Jon Voight should have been on that GOP Master Celeb list! He may not be the A-lister he once was, but the guy does have some cred left. I mean Midnight Cowboy, Catch-22, and Deliverance alone place him as a real American film icon. The guys on Sid's list aren't even be in the same room with Voight for talent.
Chuck Norris "off the charts, and not in a good way" ? You're a brave man, GBT, talkin' smack about a man who makes Sorkh Razil look like a cream puff.
Some celebrities might flip, at least for one night, if the Repubs change some policies. I could speak to Hugh Jackman down here in Sydney in exchange for some carbon emission reduction, and maybe he'll sing and dance for them.
No A-Listers? What about Clint Eastwood? That embarrassing performance with the empty chair might suggest he's losing his marbles, but the guy still has more charisma than the rest of the GOP put together.
Re MOTTO. I don't mean to horn in on your gratitude, but for most of my 54 years I always heard that that was the motto of Arkansas!
