7. I had a subscription as a kid
And a couple of months ago, one of them was delivered to my house. Mailman made a mistake. Now, I should have been a Gallant and walked over a couple of streets and put it in the right mailbox, but I was a Goofus and read it to relive part of my childhood then threw it away.

12. most women go the other way: date Goofus, marry Goofus, have Goofus'
kids, call cops on Goofus, get restraining order on Goofus, divorce Goofus, THEN marry Gallant (and secretly wish he were Goofus).

4. I so love Tom Tomorrow's dead-on analysis.
Thanks for the editorial cartoon and the poll.

Obviously, we Democrats of Democratic Underground prefer the truth and a frontal campaign to "Vichy Democrat" pandering that actually excuses (and therefore excuses and whitewashes) the Republican debacle.

8. Imagine DLC running against Hitler or Stalin...
"Hmmmm...we have to figure out a way to grab his anti-Semitic supporters without alienating our more tolerant base. I've got it! 'If elected, I will look into the Jewish problem, and place blame where it belongs.'" That way, the anti-Semites could think I mean the Jews, and everybody else could think I mean the Nazis..."
