Of Feathers and Fascists

This morning I went out back to throw some seed down for the pigeons, and I spotted this great blue heron stalking bugs/fish/whatever in the pond behind my apartment:


And now, bonus Overg content!

HWG: I hate the President, Todd
HWG: He's reached Scalia-like proportions
HWG: I just think he's a complete moron
Overgme: yeah, I'm not sure who I hate more
Overgme: Scalia is infinitely smarter, as far as I can tell
Overgme: which makes him more dangerous, in his way
HWG: Bush is doing more damage short term
Overgme: agreed
HWG: Scalia has long term consequences
Overgme: the Supreme Court is very discrete
Overgme: Bush is like a lunch tray in a china shop
HWG: hahahahaha
Overgme: honestly, the action of his that I approve of off the top of my head was the pardoning of the turkeys for Thanksgiving
Overgme: I think I've disagreed with every other position or action he's taken
HWG: I've never felt like campaigning for anyone
HWG: but to get Bush out of the office, it might be worthwhile
Overgme: sadly, the fact that Bush still has an approval rating in the positive numbers is proof positive to me that most Americans are complete morons
Overgme: I am not holding out any hope in the next election
HWG: I hate Bush and everything he stands for
Overgme: me too!
Overgme: hey
Overgme: that's actually pretty much true
Overgme: I do hate him
Overgme: and everything he stands for
Overgme: wow
HWG: wow
HWG: for the first time ever, you can use that phrase honestly
HWG: I just don't know how I ended up in a family of Republicans
Overgme: my dad often expresses conservative opinions
Overgme: which I promptly rephrase in more accurate, fascist, terms

Maybe you'll get lucky and those commies from up north will invade and set everything right, sorry left that is.

I'll vote for whoever runs against Bush. If that heron runs against Bush for Prez, I'll vote for him.

Another good thing Bush has done... He has given the military a WELL DESERVED pay raise, and boosted our moral in these tough times... Not sure If I would neccessarily re-elect him.. But whoever I DO vote for will have to stand behind his military the way Bush has.

Love the Feathers.

Totally in the minority here, but I like W. I do understand why Dems hate him though. Even as a Repub, the economy bugs me too. But can Dean-o beat him? I think not...

Posted by: Mandy at January 15, 2004 01:12 PM

I think Dean is ultra creepy. There are just no good choices, really, for Democrats. I mean, I like Wesley Clarke, but hell - I'm not sure he's qualified to lead the country.

Although, really - is anyone? I mean, other than Jon Stewart.

Me! I am. I'd make a great President. Beaker would be my Secretary of State, and Thumper my minister of defense. And Brunch would be my head assassin.

Unfortunately, I am not yet over 35 years of age. Damn constitution! (hey look, something else Bush and I have in common. We both hold the Constitution in disdain)

Posted by: overg at January 15, 2004 04:23 PM

Right, but you've probably read the Constitution.
