And Smoke Comes Out Of His Ears When He Thinks, Too
The shit-hot new catch phrase used to describe Junior in the wingnut blogosphere is "he clanks when he walks." Don't believe me? Google it. And assuming this is meant as an allusion to the spurs-and-holster cowboy heroes of Ford-era Westerns, it's as revealing as it is worthy of priceless ridicule.
First, the priceless ridicule, courtesy of The Village Voice.
Now the revealing part.
That so many voters and even pundits obviously want to believe that their tenderfoot, country club ass-pilot of a President is in fact a rough-hewn frontiersman speaks disturbing volumes about the collective political psyche of middle America. After all, this is an image Junior cultivated by quoting Bon Jovi songs that themselves quoted cliched spaghetti Westerns, and by walking across the White House lawn with his arms suspended outward from his sides as if he were ready to draw double guns at the first sign of Injuns. Call them highly suggestible, call them wishful thinkers, or call them rubes, but 53% of our countrymen and women bought it -- lock, stock and two rubber barrels.
Actually, come to think of it, Rummy does sort of look like Gabby Hayes...
