Jim Henley hit it on the head (again):
My kids bought me an insurance company! Sweet children: they don’t even have jobs yet.
I’m really looking forward to helping pick up the tab for the past several decades worth of government fiscal mismanagement in this country.
But not to worry folks! Our plucky moose-hunting Reformer (and incidentally that old guy on the ticket, who I hear may have been a POW for 5 years) will save the day! With one snap of the fingers those mavericky mavericks will clean up the government, end earmarks, get the oil drills going, and usher in an era of such economic prosperity that it will be able to balance the budget while slashing taxes and having enough money left over to start up some wars with countries that looked at us funny.
Or we could be rescued by the candidate of change, who will swoop in, and…and…do something! Something different than Bush and that old guy on Palin’s ticket! Something so hopeful and changey that budgets will balance, sea levels will lower, there will be health insurance in every pot, and billions more will be freed up for malinvestment in our public education system.
I mean, with such awesome choices presented to the American people, what’s the worse that can happen?
