Not insane... Or, we are all Bozos on this bus

Reading over the various political blogs and day after quarterbacking from the recent spate of primaries, it would seem the only thing that the Democrats have going for them is the fact that they are not quite as bad as the other guys... "Yeah, we suck but those Republicans are worse" does not make for a good campaign platform or over-brimming confidence in the future.

I don't know how you folks feel, but when the current political reality winds up being weirder than a Firesign theatre sketch on acid, I think it is time to start thinking seriously about circling the wagons or getting the flock out of Dodge.

Lifeboat stations...

Considering that the Firesign Theatre seems to be a step and a half ahead of most political pundits on what is actually going down, it would be no bad thing to pop a CD ("I Think We're All Bozos On This Bus", "Not Insane" or "How Can You Be In Two Places At Once When You're Not Anywhere At All?" would be good ones to start with) into the player and give them a listen...

Makes a lot more sense and certainly more entertaining than the spoutings of an anti-masturbation cum senate candidate.
