Dudes. Quit Bogarting

Dudes. Quit Bogarting….For a person WHO NEVER SHUTS UP, being asked to guest blog anywhere is a little like asking Anna Nicole Smith if she’d like to ‘entertain’ the newly reincarnated but still insane Howard Hughes. Duh, yes!!! Then, the time comes, guest blog time. You have two political science degrees….a law degree…….libel insurance….a huge brother who’s a bouncer and cousins who’ll do anything for a six-pack and a slice of sweet potato pie……all the nation’s politics and policies to wax philosphical about…not to mention the planet generally and you, never-at-a-loss-for-words Debbie,…….dither. You pick one subject, then the other. You read the last six month of entries and see, one by one, every topic you’ve ever even mumbled about in your sleep debated ad nauseam. Thoroughly. Provocatively. The inescapable conclusion? The regulars have bogarted all the umbrage! But stay tuned. This is still America: I know I can find something fresh to be pissed off about.
