123. I thorougly love Manny's sense of humor.

Of course, satire hurts the feelings of those who take themselves far too seriously.

Usually the kind of humor that Manny was so good at only hurts when the person reading or hearing it is unwilling to be honest about the truths he expresses in his humor.

The Third Way stole a political party that used to be the party of the people. Thanks to the Clintons we are now, in part, the party of the corporations and oligarchs. That fact became so apparent to me when workers in Wisconsin were in the State Building and Obama was so slow to support them. That was proof of how far we have come from the Democratic Party I grew up with.Truman

Of course, I guess you have to be old enough (and I am) to remember Truman, JFK and LBJ and Jimmy Carter to understand how far from the party of FDR the Clintons have taken us.

I'm an FDR Democrat so I like Manny's humor.
