The Eighteenth Letter, Preferably Capitalized

People seem to be asking if it’s just President Obama, his blackness, his socialism? I haven’t seen the last seventeen years so ably summarized as here. It’s all about one little letter, the 18th. Capitalized. Nothing else matters.

Meanwhile, Corporate America attempted another raid on my checking account at the end of last week. They also sent me a letter saying my 10-01-2009 mortgage payment was needed immediately. Sheesh. And this is a business that wasn’t indicted for fraud and mismanagement and all. When I spoke with my friendly customer service representative earlier today, he just said it was all a mistake and I should ignore the pay-up letter. “May I get that in writing, please?” I asked.

We don’t do that, he said.

No, I thought, of course you don’t.

    Incredible post, and I agree with your assessment of it.

    Wow. Terrific post. He got s bit carried away at the end, but the first 2/3′s was spot-on.

    Funny – you could replace “Clinton” with “Bush,” “D” with “R” and get an equally accurate (or more accurate) summary of the past 17 years, complete with all the myths, half-truths and misperceptions intact.

    Oh, and not all of us right-wing nutjobs supported the war Iraq.

    It’s embarrassing that you’d link to a piece of tripe like that. Maybe you need a little time off.

  5. Todd says:

    Why, Tony, what was it that you objected to in the link? I didn’t see anything outlandishly false so as to be noticeable.
