Quotations from Chairman Zero
Last night I had to run into Barnes and Noble to pick up one of those little bookmarks that's also a magnifier. As I was paying for my purchase, I noticed a little stack of hard bound blue backed copies of Zero's Inaugural Address with his face stamped on it.
One could argue that "oh, they always do this for a new administration and there are going to be X amount of people who'd want to buy them." BULL - I don't even remember seeing this for any other president, and that includes the bent one.
Have people gone insane?
I mentioned to the counterman - "I hope this isn't going to be like seeing those damn Chairman Mao books all over again like the 60s." The counterman, old enough to know better, obviously not tuned in to the dripping sarcasm said: "Oh, so many people liked the speech."
So I unloaded on the guy as I was walking out, I would have said more, but I didn't want to missa good parking spot for Ash Wednesday. He was lucky I only had verbal ammo. Wad cutter takes on a whole new meaning.
