Beam me up, Scottie!

John Boehner & Mitch McConnell (J. Scott Applewhite:AP) Nov 6 2014

Somebody is always badgering me about ridiculing the elite, whether it’s Betty Windsor’s mutant clan or politicians. I like to pretend it’s political satire when it’s just plain old garden variety scorn. But hey, what’s fair is fair! Or should I frankly say, we have reason to be alarmed. These two bozos–& there’s no way anyone can call them handsome–are US senators Boehner & McConnell. I’d say this calls for a lot more than ridicule; I’d say we have reason to panic. These guys are what some refer to as “lesser evils” but they’re indistinguishable from Beelzebub & Lucifer–or more aptly, circus clowns. Beam me up Scottie!
