Vox Populi

Heard in the supermarket checkout line today, here in Castorville -- verbatim conversation:

Clerk: I hate Obama. He's evil.
Customer: So do I.
Clerk: He's a socialist.
Customer: You got that right.
Clerk: And where did he even come from?
Customer: Yeah. And he don't even run the White House. His wife does. He can't even run his own household. Har-har-har-har!

And yet, we live here.

No wonder I consider my declining aural acuity a blessing and a gift of grace.

Just laugh in their faces.

In this neighborhood, "laughing in their faces" might lead to dueling banjos and a really bad night out in the woods.:P

It reminds of a comment by David Frum (spit) regarding Glenn Beck (spit), who said he “is a product of the collapse of conservatism as an organized political force, and the rise of conservatism as an alienated cultural sensibility.”

I think that's all conservatism is these days.
