Super-ticket coming for the progressives

newsroom@islandpacket.comMarch 27, 2014 

The Democrats must have sent out a fresh supply of Kool-Aid to the party faithful. Recent letters contained enough revisionist history to make George Orwell blush.

You have to wonder if the writers really believe what they are saying, or is it just to get a rise out of right-wing wackos like me. Either way, it makes for interesting reading and goes a long way toward explaining why we end up with presidents such as Carter and Obama. My guess is that if those folks take enough time to write letters, they probably take enough time to vote.

Speaking of Kool-Aid, stand by for the progressive dream ticket of all time: Hillary Clinton and Michelle Obama in 2016. It's well known that Hillary Clinton was the finest Secretary of State in the nation's history and Michelle Obama, her mother, and her daughters will have a deep understanding of foreign policy after their trip to China. I also suspect Air Force II will be getting a workout taking that foursome all around the world on other "fact finding missions" in the next three years.

On the other hand, if we right-wingers were to say that we are sorry about the impeachment thing, and all of the global warming jokes, maybe Bill Clinton and Al Gore would take another swing of the bat. They are looking pretty good right about now.
