All my faithful readers know that I rant about every thing that annoys me; politically, personally and unrepentantly. There is, quite frankly, no person on the planet more irreverent than I am, nor more able to get in your face with the truth at every turn. Making the hopelessly ignorant squirm is my mission.
But no rant today. Just an honest to goodness appreciation that this country, for all its horrendous people and problems, managed to reelect the best president we've had in a long time despite the best efforts of money, crooks and puppet masters.
Congratulations, Barack Obama. Against all odds, you bring hope to the world. You understand the world's problems and you never let the slime balls you have to deal with bring you down to their level. You're a good man. And if someone can say that about you these days, you don't have to accomplish anything else!
Take note Donald Trump. If you had an ounce of integrity, you might be sitting in the white house. Unfortunately, you are doomed to sit in your barber's chair, getting bad hair plugs that are almost as awful to look at as anything that comes out of your mouth is difficult to hear.
Oooops. Sorry. Couldn't help myself.
