Republicans love calling Democrats "socialists" which is not only sadly incorrect (I only WISH they were more socialist) but also rather non-damning (oh, those crazy Scandinavians and their free health care, unions, low crime rates, and hot swimsuit models). Ideological Socialists (as opposed to those who merely throw it in their name as in "National Socialist" or "Union of Soviet Socialists") have the historical advantage of being the least violent revolutionaries this side of Gandhi.

But the GOP is allowed by our diligent media to throw these labels around carelessly, all the while now the same Republican goofs simultaneously are describing themselves as insurgents, only they chose the Taliban. Which is really foolish because they don’t make for cool t-shirts.

Combine that with the last "8 years" of non-accomplishment and choosing a felonious, thrice-married, obese, racist, drug-addict as your spokesmodel and you’ve got the makings of a real minority party.

In 1949, I decided to wrestle professionally, starting my career in Texas. In my debut, I defeated Abe Kashey, with former World Heavyweight boxing Champion Jack Dempsey as the referee. In 1950, I captured the NWA Junior Heavyweight title. In 1953, I won the Chicago version of the NWA United States Championship. I became one of the most well-known stars in wrestling during the golden age of television, thanks to my exposure on the Dumont Network, where I wowed audiences with my technical prowess. I was rumored to be one of the highest paid wrestlers during the 1950s, reportedly earning a hundred thousand dollars a year. My specialty was "the Sleeper Hold" and the founding of modern, secular, Turkey.

Oops, sorry, that's the biography of Verne Gagne with a touch of Mustafa Kemal.

I'm just an average moron who in reality is a practicing civil rights and employment attorney in fly-over country .
