And it's not even Halloween yet

Adults (who don't need them) wearing diapers? Incompetent fools dressing up like the President? The Steyn (and no, he's not one of the fools. How I wish he would run for prez...)

"At a million-dollar San Francisco fundraiser today, President Obama warned his recession-battered supporters that if he loses the 2012 election it could herald a new, painful era of self-reliance in America." 
Oh, no! The horror! 
"Self-reliance" is now a pejorative? Nice to have that clarified.
Is it too late for a Self-Reliance Awareness Day? No, there's no ribbons. Make your own damn ribbon. If that's too much to hope for, how about a Multi-Trillion-Dollar Debt Awareness Day? The ribbon starts out black but turns deeper and deeper red. How about a We've Spent All The Money Including The Money For An Awareness-Raising Ribbon Day? An Impending Societal Collapse Awareness Day? 
Yes, yes. I'm aware the cost of diapers adds up over a month, and you can't use your food stamps to pay for them. Tough. This country's broke. As I said last week, it has to pay back $15 trillion just to get back to having nothing at all. And that's more money than anyone ever has had to pay back. Were you aware of that? Distressingly large numbers of Americans still pining for ever more swaddling in the government cradle seem entirely unaware.

  1. I have to admit: I have an enormous crush on Mark an intellectual way, of course. How can you not be drawn to a man who makes you laugh at "Impending Societal Collapse"?

  2. That 'enormous crush' thing is most widespread--there's even a name for us: Steynettes (see Pundette). But here's the way I look at it: you might as well go down laughing. Crying just makes your eyes all red and puffy.
