Revolution Stuff

Very interesting, this revolution stuff. So, the people actually caused a dictator to leave office, without killing him. It remains to be seen, of course, what the Egyptian army will do to bring about a real democracy, wherein real people vote for candidates of their choice to run things. A hopeful sign for the Middle East, a place where democracy has never been high on the list of things to do. They seem to prefer 14th century rulers, whether kings or presidents. So, who's next . . . Saudi Arabia would be on my list, followed by Syria. Iraq, of course, is still up in the air, presumably awaiting a decision by Donald Rumsfeld as to whether he would like to be president for life.
I can't quite tell what our own teabaggers think of this situation. They of course have been told by their bosses, the Cock Brothers, that whatever happens, it is Obama's fault, unless whatever happens is good, in which case the neo-cons caused it to happen, and they can congratulate themselves.  And Rupert's acting ensemble, Glenn, O'Reilly & the Fat Drug Addict have all been told that Obama is wrong, whatever he does.
So, maybe now life will return to normal, and America can resume our preoccupation with Bud Lite, NASCAR, and eliminating the Middle Class. Spring is almost here . . . and that's a good thing.

The guys, below, are soon to join our garden again, and we can for a while forget about the teabaggers and that old anarchist Ron Paul.
