The Return Of The Etch-A-Sketch

From Album 5
And this cycle features Scott Walker's handlers claiming they can erase and start over once they've pleased the primary voters...even as the Wisconsin electorate has a fair bit of buyer's remorse.


  1. Well, you know the old saying, about leopards never changing their spot. That does NOT apply to US politicians. Well, actually to nearly any politician, but it seems that the ones we get here in 'Merikkka are really near masters at it. Smug bastards.

  2. Shit...logged out before I posted my comment...anyway, to keep things short, and to note your follow up below, I just keep thinking about how after WWII, which required a sustained effort from everyone (and everyone did their part), and which also was the last time something approaching total war wouldn't obliterate civilization, you actually had a small concession on the elites: the GI Bill, the rise of a middle class (also done in part as a strategic counter to the USSR commies)...but damn if they didn't pull back as soon as they could (Ronald Raygun)...

    Anyway...hope the river's dropped a bit and flooding isn't quite as much of a threat...

    Take it easy.
