Pompous disdain

Already this year our local leftist extremists have trashed almost everything except, of course, the Sierra Club, the ACLU, France, Hillary, Michael Moore, the U.N. and welfare.

They’ve expressed pompous disdain for nativity scenes, Homeland Security, the American flag, roads, religion, Fox News, builders, Cheney, state government motorcycles, crosses, NASCAR, U.S. military, free enterprise, Bush, police, the economy, lower taxes, Reagan, SUVs, Arnold, schools, war heroes, local government, Rumsfeld and the Ten Commandments, while placing special emphasis on energy.

The solution to energy should be to harness all that extremist hot air; that would definitely take care of any energy crisis America may have. They could get rid of dams, coal mines, reactors, solar panels, oil wells, and those nature-intrusive windmills.

With help from their “special” friends above, they could defeat Bush and rid the world of those terrible things that have caused them consternation. They’d be free at last to plant cute little organic gardens and ride bicycles to ACLU meetings, searching for another thing to forbid and someone else to hate. They will certainly be safe from evil adversaries and world terrorism, free to hug their trees, redistribute wealth and watch 9/11 over and over.
