The recent Presidential Inauguration brought about such a feeling of euphoria that I found it difficult to concentrate on other things. How about you? Were you gleefully, ecstatically happy? Did you experience a sense of blissful exhilaration when you saw videos of the Marine helicopter circle Washington D.C. then head west into the sunset?
Man, I did! I was on cloud nine! I was walking on air! I was in seventh heaven! Jumping for joy! Tickled pink! On top of the world! Over the moon! Gee, it's so difficult to convey to you the jubilation that I felt at that moment.
In fact, I felt so joyous that I just wanted to see pure goodness in everything and everybody! It was a Herculean effort on my part to be sarcastic. I started making plans to shut down my website and become a full-time optimist, despite the fact that people with pollyanna attitudes are often the most irritating human pests on the planet.
But then I was saved.
A few days ago, ultra-conservative blowhard, Rush Limbaugh, was being "exclusively interviewed" by ultra-conservative Fox News TV person, Sean Hannity. Hannity asked Limbaugh, "Do you want him (Obama) to succeed?" Limbaugh replied, "No, I want him to fail."
Thank you Rush Limbaugh!
Thanks for the lurid, bilious vomit that gushes from your big fat mouth.
You have shown me that it is okay to be an asshole.
I know there's a possibility that a majority of Shelby County citizens revere Rush Limbaugh and probably have already purchased a transcript or DVD of Hannity's "exclusive interview" of Limbaugh for their personal video libraries, but that's okay, too!
Because it means I no longer need to feel guilty about resuming a satisfying hobby of creating caustic, detestable, revolting, hateful, disgusting, godawful, nasty cartoons.
