Badtux the Snarky Penguin

In a time of chimpanzees, I was a penguin.

The new meme: They're better off

Former first lady Barbara Bush trotted it out first. Now the right wing babboon squad is heartily flinging feces big time. People like Charmaine Neville are better off. I mean, what's a little rape or two between neo-cons, anyhow? People like Fats Domino are better off now that their homes have been destroyed and a lifetime's worth of memorabilia turned into rubble. They're better off to be crowded into auditoriums instead of being in their own homes, they're better off being held behind barbed wire in veritable concentration camps. They're better off as prisoners for five months in isolated locations. They're better off being fenced in like animals than they were in their humble homes in New Orleans. They're better off.

And you know what? It's going to work. It's going to work because it is what the two legged hairless apes that are the American people want to hear. It's going to work because they WANT someone to lie to them, to tell them that everything is okay, that there's no need to worry, no need to rouse youself from your pathetic little life of defecating and fornicating and masticating and accumulating shiny baubles of no import, no need to help other than maybe sending a check to the Red Cross. People WANT to believe, deep down in the monkey instinct that is the heart of every one of the naked apes called "human beings". So they will. So they will.

Sometimes I wonder whether being a penguin in a time of chimpanzees is a curse.

Be outrageous, ridicule the fraidy-cats, rejoice in all the oddities that freedom can produce." -- Molly Ivins, 1944-2007 "The penalty good men pay for indifference to public affairs is to be ruled by evil men."
