It's so good, Trogdor might have written it himself. (Alter-ego? Nom-de-plume?) If I quoted the clever, laugh-out-loud funny parts, I'd basically be quoting the whole thing. Let's just lift the dialogue where writer Frank J. Fleming sketches out The Story So Far:
AMERICANS: “So, the economy is pretty bad and there’s high employment. You think you can do something about that?”DEMOCRATS AND OBAMA: “We can spend a trillion dollars we don’t have on pork and stuff.”AMERICANS: “No … that’s not what we want. We’d really like you not to do that.”DEMOCRATS: “You’re stupid. We’re doing it anyway.”AMERICANS: “That’s not going to help us get jobs!”DEMOCRATS: “Sure it will; millions of them … though they may be invisible. You’ll have to trust us they exist. And guess what else we’ll do: We’ll create a giant new government program to take over health care.”AMERICANS: “That has nothing to do with jobs!”DEMOCRATS: “We don’t care about that anymore. We really want a giant new health care program. We’re sure you’ll love it.”AMERICANS: “Don’t pass that bill. You hear me? Absolutely do not pass that bill.”DEMOCRATS: “Believe me; you’ll love it. It has … well, I don’t know what exactly is in the bill, but we’re sure it’s great.”AMERICANS: “Listen to me: DO. NOT. PASS. THAT. BILL.”DEMOCRATS: “You’re not the boss of me! We’re doing it anyway!”AMERICANS: “Look what you did! Now the economy is way worse, we’re even deeper in debt, and we have a bunch of new laws we don’t want!”DEMOCRATS: “You’re racist.”AMERICANS: “Wha … How is that racist?”DEMOCRATS: “Now you’re getting violent! Stop being violent and racist, you ignorant hillbillies! And remember to vote Democrat in November.”
Hooked? You should be! Go read the whole thing.
I will say, though, that I think the current crop of GOP candidates is better than a "barking dog." If folks like Sharron Angle and James West get into Congress, I think we'll see some significant, positive change.
