Not much of a comfort

In today’s classy representation of the modern Republican Party we have Allen West who sent what he or Steve King say to themselves in the mirror every morning to Deborah Wasserman-Schultz:

You are the most vile, unprofessional, and despicable member of the US House of Representatives.

Strong words from a guy who barely avoided a dishonorable discharge and prison time.

Oh well, let’s see if we can get worse, if you’re Michele Bachmann you can give a reporter the kind of beating that Glenn Beck has to pay for.

Well, at least we’ve got a a Democrat in the White House. Never-mind and sigh.

I only wish throwing pies around was our biggest problem.

The Individual States of America



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 .
