DURST: Myopic Cows

Would you like a five to eight hundred billion dollar tax cut? Of course you would. Its like asking a kid if he wants hot fudge on his ice cream. Well you're not going to get it, because Bill Clinton says it "doesn't leave room for what's necessary." Whatever the hell that means.And this makes Republicans very happy. Because they know the American people are as short sighted as a herd of myopic cows crossing a pirhana filled stream and they plan on jumping on that during the next election like critics on a new Kubrick film.See, the American people love tax cuts. That was the Republican reasoning for trying to gut Medicare to the tune of $268 billion and offset it with tax cuts. "The American people want tax cuts." Well, let's catalogue more things the American people want.The American people want drive through nickel beer night.The American people want to lose weight by eating sour cream and onion potato chips.The American people want to clip Get Out Of Jail Free coupons from the Sunday Comics section.The American people would chew off their own foot if Jerry Springer told them there was liquid gold in their ankle veins.20 percent of the American people didn't understand the question so much they thought Ross Perot was the answer.The American people think Bruce Willis can actually dodge bullets.The American people love the Home Shopping Network because its commercial free.68 percent of the American people still believe Professional Wrestling is legitimate.Will Durst is among the 14 percent that don't think its fake.
