Personal Stimulus

Watch the squirming in comments over a question to St. Ronnie:
Here is my question Mr. Reagan; as a good conservative I don’t believe in handouts or welfare. I think the government is spending us into socialism and pushing us towards rampant inflation. At the same time the money Mr. Obama is handing out to buy cars is my money! Should I take the $4500 from the government or should I stand on principle and leave the $4500 discount on the table?
Are there similar agonies about the use of the sidewalk?

Probably OT, but the photoshopped Brent-Bozell gnome over at S,N! is badly in need of the drag-&-drop treatment.

If you are bored with fridge-poetry, you could let us drag-&-drop musical notes onto his buttocks.

At least he has the right of refusal. Bush's signature tax cuts were a massive upwards transfer of everybody's money, but whatevs. No use going consaino about it.

Your snails comment had me working on Surber's head popping in and out of his shirt collar, which I'll get to, but I fucked up the shirt colour midway through and I gotta fix it.

I don't remember any snails comment but if the outcome is amusing then I'll happily claim a share of the credit anyway.

Well, you're ahead of me, Ingsmi took me for a fifth of Stoli and the better part of a teenth. I didn't get out of there till almost three. Ten minutes, sheesh.

Don't bring your bird-fucking around here.

Yeah, swanning about like that.
Why do people (and I use that term loosely) write letters to Reagan? Has he got smarter in heaven? I mean even before Alzheimer's he was not the sharpest knife in the drawer and a letter longer than "Hi Ronnie" would likely send him off to snoozelum land.
It's not like he's Father Christmas now is it? Leave him some milk and cake and all he would leave you would be cake crumbs. Sad little conflicted conservatives should maybe write to Unca Jonah for advice. And then do the opposite, of course.

Why don't we take a chance...

I can solve that guy's dilemma, and will tell him as soon as he sends me the $4500.

Oh yuck, nuccus. That's what the commies want to do with our precious bodily fluids.

Didn't you people grow up with the`tradition of leaving out a plate of lambs' brainzzzz on $mas Eve to placate Zombie Santa's hunger?

Teh Great Gazoogle has no record of any novelty books with the title "Children's Letters to Ronald Reagan", so there's a publishing niche right there. You could rake in the dosh, Mr McGravitas, if you think you can write in the necessary winsome style.

Dear Ronald Reagan:

It is cold when my family cannot afford to pay heat bills so please bring me coals from hell.

M. Bouffant said...

"Coals from hell."

It is to laugh, so I did.
