Last refuge of scoundrels and litterers
This combination of freedom, patriotism and the gutter caught my eye when I was already in a bad mood, not just about the fall election, which seems to share a lot of the same themes, but also about the smarmy robocall I received from singer Pat Boone, who seemed to think we shared something politically (an unfortunate database glitch no doubt).
"Hi Peter, this is Pat Boone, Yes, I'm still singing, but now I'm calling about . . ." He went on to try to convince me how important it was to vote for the plastic airhead with tea Party credentials who's running against Russ Feingold -- a proud progressive who really understands what freedom means. No thanks, Pat.
