Richard Nixon Was a Very Smart Man

Richard Milhouse Nixon was a very smart man. True, he did a lot of things wrongly, and illegally. But, all the same he was smart enough to realize the best way to deal with a problem was (gasp!) first to recognize it and then to deal with it!

Nixon did not deny problems, nor did he ignore them in the hopes they would somehow, mysteriously, miraculously go away, or never be noticed. Nixon was in no way a denier. No sir, Mr. Nixon saw the problems, grasped them by the horns and dealt with them. He usually did a great job of it too. I am no particular fan of Nixon's, but I have to acknowledge he solved many problems, and the world is a better place for it today.

We saw ANILCA come in on Nixon's watch along with the acts setting up the EPA - the weapon of choice for the environmentalists of today. Nixon is also responsible for rapprochement with China, arms limitations, ending the Vietnam War and a myriad other good things beneficial to our citizens and the world at large. Would be that the current Republican bozos in charge were one tenth as smart as Nixon's group.

Would that they could claim even one tiny bit of success with their policies - but alas, there is none. None, zippo, nada.

And, not a prayer either. Today's birds are simply greedy, rapacious throwbacks to the despoil and pillage Republicans of the latter part of the nineteenth century and early part of the twentieth. Yes, the same ones who bought down the Great Depression upon our country and the world. But, they are very, very good at one thing, and that is to convince their followers they are doing what's 'best for everyone' when nothing could be farther from the truth.

And, those followers are today's sheep-like defenders of the 'Global Warming Myth' and the worst administration in the history of our great nation. They are the ones who characterize anyone who disagrees as 'socialists' and much, much worse - 'eco-terrorists' for example, painting all with the same brush. But the rest of us - the other 70% - are going to set things right again, and damned soon too - or it will be too late.

    Vienna, Austria-

    The Austrian Dungeon Master, Josef Fritzl, has challenged theSpoof's biggest screwball Gnarly Eric,to an arm wrestling match to be held in his newly renovated dungeon in central Vienna,

    "I had it redecorated in subtle shades of olive with a tinge of French gray. Plus, I added some comfy madrass pillows and a touch of pale pink frilly curtains in anticipation of Gnarly Eric's arrival"

    Fritzl, who just completed a online course in interior decorating, says he's fit enough to take on the grumpy Alaskan in any arm wrestling contest. "After tea, I might even let him win, or I might have sex with him again!" Says Fritzl.

    The challenge resulted from a taunt in a populat S&M chat room, where Gnarly Eric called Fritzl a bad name. To promote fair play the room moderator, Herman Goering jr, asked the two grown adults to settle it 'man to man'.

    Fritzl says he'll wear a new, black skin tight leather outfit, and will have some vintage leather butcher aprons for the visiting Alaskan. "I believe he's a large fellow, so I'll allow some extra room. At least he won't be doing his fake Marine act again. People in his home town found out!"

    Gnarly Eric has asked fellow writer Queen Mother to be his 'second' since he regularly has sex with him late at night.
