Welcome to Buster's Blog

Irregular commentary on whatever's on my mind -- politics, sports, current events, and life in general. After twenty years of writing business and community newsletters, fifteen years of fantasy baseball newsletters, and two years of email "columns", this is, I suppose, the inevitable result: the awful conceit that someone might actually care to read what I have to say. Posts may be added often, rarely, or never again. As always, my mood and motivation are unpredictable.

The New Compassionate Conservatism -- A Faithful Reader Has An Idea

The world is bursting at the seams with overpopulation, and the only thing our Republican politicians can come up with is to be utterly opposed to contraception on the grounds of "religious freedom". Santorum says contraceptives are the #1 threat to our society.

The GOP insists that global warming is a hoax, so fuck it! -- let's drill, frack, dig, and pipeline ourselves into extinction ASAP.

Gingrich wants to slash social services and have poor children mop the floors at their schools.

The race-baiting governor of Arizona wags her bony-ass finger in the face of the President of the United States.

Too many Republican governors are fixated on zygote rights, union-busting, and guns for everyone, everywhere, all the time.

Under the pending legislation in Virginia, women who want an abortion will be forcibly penetrated with a sonogram probe for no medical reason.

And Romney drives cross-country with his dog strapped to the roof of his car, and sees nothing wrong with it.

So it's no wonder that a faithful reader offered this thought:


If somehow the Republicans win this fall, do you think we can make a nuclear deal with Iran and have those compassionate Mullahs come in to help liberalize our society?

D** (a faithful reader)

Buster writes back:

Dear D**,

You may be onto something. The Mullahs seem like Eleanor Roosevelt, compared to some of our home-grown conservatives. Could we get them to nuke just the wing-nut douchebags?
