My Fellow Americans

"The annual State of the Union pageant is a hideous, dispiriting, ugly, monotonous, un-American, un-republican, anti-democratic, dreary, backward, monarchical, retch-inducing, depressing, shameful, crypto-imperial display of official self-aggrandizement and piteous toadying, a black Mass during which every unholy order of teacup totalitarian and cringing courtier gathers under the towering dome of a faux-Roman temple to listen to a speech with no content given by a man with no content, to rise and to be seated as is called for by the order of worship — it is a wonder they have not started genuflecting — with one wretched representative of their number squirreled away in some well-upholstered Washington hidey-hole in order to preserve the illusion that those gathered constitute a special class of humanity without whom we could not live." -- Kevin Williamson, Great Caesar's Ghost

I missed the State of the Moron Address. Was anything useful bleated? I was busy defending my property and water rights at a county council meeting. They want to meter and tax my use of water from my private well!

I normally try to read to my family only the most uplifting offerings, but this screed got read out loud for its' pure venom, a symphony of distaste.

Why do you hold back? This really is a piece of feces.

The ladies wanted to watch Sherlock. It was pretty good.
