What’s a Poor Pachyderm to do?

The Party of Hoover seems to be suffering one setback followed by another… followed by yet another. First it was Congress lost to the lefties, then the White House, next came Arlen Specter’s defection, and now this from TIME Magazine:

“ … he's quitting the party — and he's the bull's-eye of its target audience. But he also said he wouldn't support any cuts in defense, Social Security, Medicare or Medicaid — which, along with debt payments, would put more than two-thirds of the budget off limits.”

Some other things he has said since first thrusting himself on an unsuspecting nation were also quite enlightening. Like the time in a debate when he answered a question about the news media by stating, “I think media should be abolished from, uh, you know, reporting.” Or when he waxed philosophic in a discussion of First Amendment freedom of speech rights, observing that “back in the day, really, when people would talk about our military in a poor way, somebody would shoot ‘em. And there’d be nothing said about that.”

He's got a million of 'em folks...

Yep, TIME Magazine reporter Michael Grunwald has the scoop of the decade. Samuel Wurzelbacher, faux plumber turned war correspondent, turned author, turned public speaker, turned economic advisor, scion of the Ultra Right, and avowed gay basher, is bailing on his homeboys.

This little tidbit is but a small portion of a good article. Grunwald hits a home run.


Wish I had seen this before posting. It fits so well.
