Sticky Political References

Bill Quick points to the maple syrup story in the great white north, and figures that the 15k barrels suddenly ‘missing’ from a Canadian warehouse were never filled in the first place.

In the age of politics in everything, let me be the first to point out what an excellent metaphor we have here for our monetary system. As long as nobody actually wants a little something for the pancake, you can borrow against that non-existent supply, trade stock in it, do whatever.

We can all enjoy the idealized world of Obama’s speeches, as long as nobody actually wants to live in it.

    That last line is a winnah! (minor: I’d change “want” to “have”)

    It captures the whole worldview of a leftist, quite well: As long as there’s gruel, sex, drugs, and music, the pretend world of the left is good enough.

    And by “music,” I mean the crap they play on the radio.
