One of my fave political satirists, Mark Russel, was on NPR yesterday as I was driving from work. Talking politics as usual, Dems taking over Congress in particular he said,(I'm getting it as close as I can) "Republicans were afraid of the Democrats taking over because they would enforce their hippie attitudes on the heartland. The heartland responded by lighting a joint." It's a good thing I was at a stop light. I was laughing so freakin' hard.
