LEAVE IT TO PEEVER
Helping to advance the insidious liberal agenda
— Bumper sticker of the week: 4 out of 5 voices in my head say I’m right.

— The ups and downs of war:
• We encourage people to step forward to defend America, but we hate it when they get
• We love it when the President says we are the spreaders of freedom and righteousness, but
we hate it when we find out that’s not true.
• We get all patriotic when we go to war to rid the world of “weapons of mass destruction,”
but hate it when we can’t find any.
• We are impressed when we capture “terrorists” and jail them, but forget that every human
being has a right to be treated with respect and dignity. Even our enemies.
• We think that killing people will bring about peace, but in our hearts we know better.
• War does give the unemployed and poor some opportunities, but they can be rather short-
• War does help the economy. It takes from the poor and gives to the rich.
• When all is said and done, the war stories are mainly tales of sadness and woe, dressed up in patriotism and flags and memories that become skewed with time.
— The lesser of two evils:
• A prostitute on the street corner or a pretty little thing that steals someone’s husband?
• A bank robber or the CEO of a company who bankrupts the retirement fund?
• Bush or Cheney?
• A killer or the state appointed executioner?
• The enemy or the liberator?
• A lying President or a drug dealer?
• A right-wing, Christian, Supreme Court Justice or a lobotomy?
• Burning a prairie plot or selling it to Wal-Mart?
• A politician or a used car salesman?
• A crazed cowboy or a drunken Indian?
• Winning The Flub-A-Dub award or getting an enema?
— Rove and Bush will go down together. You just don’t fire your creator. If you think Rove will go, you better get another fantasy.
— Bolton appointed as ambassador to the UN: Bush couldn’t get his maniacal, anti-UN man through the Senate, so he appoints him during a recess of the Senate, which was a wrong and disappointing use of an emergency provision that allows a president to make appointments during recesses for “real emergencies.” The craziness of this President just never seems to end. Folks, we’ve entered The Twilight Zone.
— The definition of a politician: A flawed human being who pretends to know how to govern other flawed human beings.
— If it weren’t for right-wingers, I’d have no fun at all: Occasionally someone will tell me that I write too much about right-wingers. That I should have more compassion. Be more tolerant. I thought about it for a long time and have come to the conclusion that they’re wrong.
