Mr. G Is Right
http://www.readersupportednews.org/opinion/75-75/2643-m...

By John Cory, Reader Supported News

"White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs ranted that "the professional left" needed to be drug tested for their complaints and attacks on the Obama administration after all the good things Obama has done.

I agree.

We "professional leftists" do indeed need drug testing because apparently the colorful liquid inducing hallucinogenic of "hope and change" has worn off and the ugly mediocrity of modern Democratic leadership stares us in the face with the not-so-friendly smugness of a hookah-smoking caterpillar.

Maybe some good old-fashioned Window Pane or Micro Dot, or better yet, some natural organic 'Shrooms could do the trick. After all, we are all mushrooms now as the old joke goes, kept in the dark and fed a pile of bullshit."

(snip)

Good commentary on the Gibbs fiasco.

hookah-smoking caterpillar? That is from White Rabbit?


I posted that song recently. What was the context...

Oh yea my old posts on English board years ago. It would be funny if... well to funny to mention. LOL


Funny coinkidink there.

Gibs runs from the I quit guy, keeping his job :) Glad he did not follow that group think narrative. After talking about professional left.

hmmm, I wonder what the connection is.... Pretty sure Jefferson Starship, or Airplane, is Democratic, and I like Grace Slick.

Although I think of that song in many ways, wonder why someone would use that connection?

Mushrooms have many contexts.

Idea...

What if....

Professional 'left' was part of I quit narrative.

Left could be quitting, maybe his statement was part of that same thing!

What an idea.
