John McSame, the only member of the POW party, said last night before a gathering of rich, white folks, that his mission as titular head of that party is "to catch up to history." Lost in the mindless chanting of "USA, USA" (I think they thought they were at a replay of a USA-Russia hockey game, or a Toby Keith concert) was his next line - "But first I have to catch a nap." Here's a man who has lived through most of recorded history, except for the thousand or so years when he was a POW; first under the Pharoahs, then again under the Merovingian kings, and of course, who can forget his incarceration and terrible treatment at the hands of the Mud People, only ended when Flash Gordon defeated them in a rousing intergalactic battle.
BTW, this is the party that has not made any headway to into CATCHING Osama Bin Laden.
This is also a man who is first learning HOW TO SIGN ON TO THE INTERNET!!!
You don't CATCH UP TO HISTORY.
YOU LIVE AND IT JUST SORT OF HAPPENS.
EXCEPT WHEN YOU'RE RUNNING TO BE THE "LEADER OF THE FREE WORLD".
THEN YOU TRY TO PUT YOUR IMPRINT ON IT.
WITH JOHN MCSAME WE WON'T GET A MAN WHO WILL PUT HIS IMPRINT ON HISTORY.
HE'LL PROBABLY CLAP HIS HANDS TOGETHER AND HOPE THAT HISTORY, LIKE HIS NIGHTLIGHT, SIMPLY GOES OUT.
