For those who missed the Rally to Restore Sanity, which took place on the Washington mall on Saturday where “tens of thousands of people showed up,” here are some of the slogans displayed:


I Stand 4 Good Posture

I Support the Right to Arm Bears

Fear Is Illogical (a Star Trek fan)

Libraries are Socialist

Yelling Rarely Works…I Know, I’m A Mom!

Don’t Tread On Anyone

Kitlers Against Hitler Analogies


My Wife Is A Muslim And Not A Terrorist, But I’m Scared Of Her Anyway


Government Doesn’t Suck

Hyperbole Or Instant Death

It wasn’t covered well by the media but we all know we were either there for real or in spirit. When I saw Christine O’Donnell trying to assure me she wasn’t a witch and when there was a commercial showing Obama becoming the Grim Reaper, I knew things had become absurd. I remembered a slogan on a T-shirt that Hunter S. Thompson said, “When things become weird, the weird go pro.” I will be glad that my phone is not ringing anymore or I don’t have to hit the mute button.

I am neither a movie buff nor am I superstitious, but to keep myself occupied during Sunday’s Bronco game, I started reviewing the movies on TV.

Well, maybe it’s coincidental or perhaps a good omen, but at 6 p.m. on “election night” Tuesday, “The Winning Team” starring Ronald Reagan is playing on the Turner Classic Movies channel!

That’s not all – at 7 p.m. a movie entitled “Swing Vote” with Kevin Costner is featured on the Comedy Channel.

Regardless of their relativity, both are really entertaining, having received rave reviews, and might provide good momentary escape in advance of getting the election results.

Later Tuesday evening, TCM’s featured movie is “Eight Men Out” – now that is not merely an omen, but quite an understatement.

God bless America.
