You Just Might Be an Asshole

If you are terrified of horses and afraid to be near them, and yet like to dress up in cowboy costumes as an adult and ride bicycles rather than horses on a former pig farm that you call a "ranch", you just might be an asshole.

If you were a cocaine-snorting, shiftless and worthless drunk until you were forty years old, and yet then begin to pontificate sanctimoniously to the entire nation about "decency and honor" and "moral character", you might just be an asshole.

If you dodged the military draft and avoided a foreign war because you were the privileged son of a Congressman, and yet like to dress up in military costumes as an adult and send hundreds of thousands of poor kids to a war that you alone started, you might just be an asshole.

If you and your brothers went from one failed and questionable business venture to another and were bailed out time and again by taxpayers and family friends, and yet have the gall to lecture a nation on economics and budgeting, you might just be an asshole.

If you and your family helped arrange for your girlfriend to have an abortion because you didnt have the sense to use a condom when you were young, and then later wag your finger at women about the sanctity of life of an embryo, you might just be an asshole.

If you have the audacity to criticize our Armed Forces for helping restore order and civility to a region torn by thousands of years of ethnic strife and ridicule its success with a snarl calling it nation building, and yet, then later embark on a ill-advised and failed $300 Billion attempt of it yourself, you might just be an asshole.
