Drives The Wimmens Wild!
on October 5th I created a photo-cartoon that
featured Judge Sonia Sotomayor saying very unflattering
things about Judge Clarence Thomas, referring
at one point to the infamous pubic hair incident.
here's the very cartoon now!
I follow the news and, honestly, I haven't heard
word one in years about Anita Hill's testimony
in which she claimed that Clarence Thomas placed
a pubic hair on the lip of her can of Coke.
So you can imagine how flabbergasted
I was two days ago when I learned that Judge
Thomas's wife, Ginni, phoned Anita Hill and requested
that she apologize for
her testimony about the pubic hair.
After all these years.
I think not.
However, while I'd like to think my little jape
has driven Mrs. Thomas over the edge it wasn't
much of a push as she's been stumping earnestly
for the Tea Party as of late.
And, lest you think I chose to pick on Mr. Thomas
in the comic above solely based on his high
melanin count, think again. It's pretty clear
to anyone paying attention that his years on
the bench could just as easily been served
by your standard-issue cocker spaniel.
apologies to cocker spaniels.

To Restore Sanity Comes Home!
I wanted, fervently, to attend the Rally
to Restore Sanity rally this coming 30th of October,
but three days, minimum, away from the office
wasn't in the cards for me.
So I was elated to hear that the rally has metastacized,
in a good way, and is now in almost every state
in the union. In addition, several foreign
sites are hosting their own rally, too.
The nearest rally to me is in Austin, Texas and
currently there are about 3500 RSVPs. (Rumors
that a Dallas rally is in the offing, too) But
the word is spreading and the numbers are growing.
Share this info with a friend or two, won't you?

This is good news to a lot of people but, seriously, if you can make the Washington,
D.C. event then please, by all means, go. Tell
'em Lefty sent ya.
