Insurgents in blue land

Marin County — bluest of blue spots on the American political map.  And yet, just today, a friend of mine spotted the following posted anonymously on the bulletin board at a well-traveled supermarket in Sausalito:

More than 5,000 years ago, Moses said to the Children of Israel, “Pick up your shovels, mount your asses and camels, and I will lead you to the Promised Land”.

About 75 years ago, Roosevelt said “ Lay down your shovels, sit on your asses, light up your Camels, this IS this the Promised Land”.

Now Obama has stolen your shovels, taxed your asses, raised the price of Camels, and mortgaged the Promised Land.

Furthermore, I was so depressed last night, thinking about Health Care plans, the economy, the wars, lost jobs, social security, etc., I called Lifeline, the suicide help line. I got a freakin’ call center in Pakistan. I told them I was suicidal.

They were all excited. They asked if I could drive a truck.

No wonder Babs Boxer is getting nervous.
