  •  Since his picture is next to the word lunatic (4+ / 0-)

    in that big word book thinggie at the library, he would be voting against his legacy.

    Weird people grow behind east Texas' pine curtain. Sorry, America.

      That's some lunatic country down there, boy!  No wonder Gomer likes that word.  I've been there once and weird doesn't begin to describe the behavior I observed.  Bikers hauling chainsaws in Nazi helmets, geezers in overalls setting up lawnchairs at gas stations to stare at customers, fundies selling used farm tools and tacos out of their garage, general lunatics hanging around motel parking lots...and that was just a day and a half.  Pretty much Teatopia, if I can imagine what that would look like.

        •  And he didnt mention dragging live people (0+ / 0-)

          from the back of a pick-up. Or killing wild hogs with a pack of dogs and a sharp knife.

          You know, what Gomer calls the real America.
