EMBARRASSMENT OF KUCINICHES

Prepare yourselves for the annual State of the Union drinking game! If you drink enough, this statement might almost sound rational:

We have an embarrassment of riches in this Democratic primary this year.

Thatís Michael Mooreís assessment. Well, heís partially correct, which is better than usual. At least he isnít a mink-murdering fur wearer. Throw paint at the monster, PETA activists!

Anyone smell another payback Tuesday? Heh.

All the candidates are embarrasingly rich.

"Now, petrouli-soaked hippies, disheveled punk rock kids, and peaceniks were all improbably cheering a General's bid for the presidency."

Soak those hippies in petrol!

It must be so much more fun to be a Republican politician. You can tell groups like PETA to go piss up a rope and probably gain votes in the process.

Mikey probably stole the line from Simon Schama, who penned a book titled "The Embarrasment of Riches" about Dutch culture in the Golden Age.

I can't see Moore reading Schama, or anything else with any more pages than one of his own books. But that could just be my bias against the man speaking.

By the way, I have always wanted a mink coat -- or better yet, chinchilla (I've heard it's the softest fur). Unfortunately my budget doesn't rise above faux-fur levels, and there really isn't much cause to wear fur in Florida. But when I am feelthy rich...

Should be soon, Andrea. Nothing creates financial security like regular blogging, right? I mean, I get cramps from endorsing all the checks, and I'm just an occassional contributor to a group blog.

And the women - let slip that you're a blogger, and just watch the babes fight over you!

"An embarrassment of Kuciniches."

Sounds like a great new collective noun.

I think something's confused. So far I've gotten people fighting with me and little baby contributions in my Paypal account. =|

Come on Andrea, a true RWDB would only wear a coat made from endangered baby seals. Extra cruelty.

But chinchillas are small, so there would be more dead ones to make one coat. I wonder what chinchilla burger tastes like?

Oh, very nasty.

Best bet is to have a barn full of chinchilla and a barn full of mink. Harvest the fur off the chinchilla, feed the remains to the mink and vis-versa.

Only problem is the 10-20 (depends upon the season) illegal Hungarians you have to have around the place to do the job. Those folks know fur!
