Kurt Vonnegut Angry

Kurt Vonnegut's books are in the library, so this is relevant: Cold Turkey

There is a tragic flaw in our precious Constitution, and I don’t know what can be done to fix it. This is it: Only nut cases want to be president.

Good Old Vonnegut

Nothing like the cold hard truth. I hope I grow up to be as cranky and as articulate at one and the same time, too.

Umm...

I'm guessing he's really talking about Chimpy being a nutter based on this statement later on regarding our Preznit - "And do you know why I think he is so pissed off at Arabs? They invented algebra. Arabs also invented the numbers we use, including a symbol for nothing, which nobody else had ever had before. You think Arabs are dumb? Try doing long division with Roman numerals."
I love The Onion, and that sounds like its from one of their "news" articles!

Seriously, we do need to have a serious discussion about our national addictions to processed food, petroleum, drugs made by drug companies vs. 'illegal' drugs, tax cuts, legalized gambling and above all, blogs.

Re:Umm...

No doubt he dislikes Bush, but he might here be expressing a more general sentiment along the lines of the following quotes:

Any American who is prepared to run for president should automatically, by definition, be disqualified from ever doing so.
--Gore Vidal

When I was a boy I was told that anybody could become President. Now I'm beginning to believe it.
--Clarence Darrow
