Is it worth the effort to write a column that ties together the W. C. Fields slogan "Never Give a Sucker an even Break," Ross Thomas' book title "The Fools in Town Are on our Side," and the old locker room adage "my wife's married; but I'm not" and present something that will amuse the hardcore Fox Views audience who believe that they are people with inquiring minds who won't get fooled again?  

 

So which of the Republicans are the Foxkrieg troops going to embrace this year?   Will it be the Rich guy who made millions liquidating American businesses while trying to palm himself off as a Woody Guthrie-ish man of the streets?   (Why didn't he just say "I'm the Wall Street guy"?)   Will it be the studly family values = open marriage guy?   Will it be Rick "say hello to my little friend" Santorum?

Aren't contemporary efforts to assess the Republican scramble to select a 2012 Presidential Candidate similar to trying to solve a jigsaw puzzle while participating in the stampede to depart from a sinking ship that has sounded the abandon ship alarm?   It is an impossible task so the pundits should embrace the insanity.

 

Is America ready to do a mind melt with Rupert Murdoch and select soccer as the official American pastime?   If anyone can turn soccer hooliganism into a display of American patriotism, surely it will be the Fox analysts, eh?   Isn't Superbowl Sunday going to start with a Manchester United match?   Wow!   Will all the Tottenham Hotspurs fans tune in to see the Manchester boys get their noses bloodied (figuratively speaking, of course!)?

Have any of the news organizations done an update on the brain cancer victim who was sent to the hospital for daring to root for an out-of-town team at a Hockey match recently?

 

Don't sports fans believe in "One sport -- One Team -- One star player"?  

 

Can't we all get along and subscribe to a philosophy that asserts "One CEO!" as a (metaphorically speaking) way of supporting whoever gets elected President in November?   The Republicans all agree that the Democrats should think that way.

Don't the skeptics who get so upset with the Occupy Movement urge the protesters to get a job because work will set them free?   BFH!   (Isn't that the Brit-texting way of saying Bloody Far-out Hell!"?)

BP graduated from college in the mid sixties (at the bottom of the class?) He told his draft board that Vietnam could be won without his participation. He is still appologizing for that mistake. He received his fist photo lesson from a future (more...)
