It is now officially October 1st, and as of the time I am writing this post the United States Government has been shut down for one hour and forty-three minutes. You darn well better believe I have something to say about it. Sadly though, it will have to wait until at least later this evening due to some pressing matters that I have to attend to before hand.
In the meantime, I would refer you to a statement made by Lewis Black… or rather two – which I think sums up the next phase of our government that would be most appropriate.
“What we should do is charge the government, and electroshock everybody!”
Indeed. I don’t think there’s a sane person up on capital hill anymore. Not a member of congress, not a person in the house and certainly not the “commander and chief” who has been nothing of the sort since his time in office began.
“I think it’s time we elect a dead president. My pick would be Ronald Reagan.”
I salute you sir. What better way to keep the world tranquilized than to instill the corpse of a madman in office? I thought Donald Trump was the reanimated corpse of Ronald Reagan anyway. It’s a shame he dropped out of the race, at least he has experience with being in debt and getting back out of it.
Meanwhile, I can’t wait to hear what William Chafe will say about this in his next edition of “The Unfinished Journey.”
