Topic: "Look away Dixieland"(6)
Sonny Perdue, the titular Governor of the State of Georgia (henceforth to be known as the "Goobernator'), and former veterinarian, stood on the dais with Newt (pron. "Ging Rick") the thrice-married former Speaker of the US House of Representatives in order to announce that he was appointing a "temporary" Attorney General. Thurbert Baker, the current elected Attorney General, who just happens to be black, wasn't invited to the gathering. The event, it seems was staged in order to announce the "outrage, I say outrage, boy" at the elected Attorney General refusing to follow suit with thirteen other Attorney Generals who decided to bring suit against the implementation of the HRC (Healthcare Reform for those readers who have been sleeping for the last two years).
The Goobernator, struggling with an enormous budgetary deficit, and facing the prospect of closing schools and firing teachers (except for football coaches), found sufficient funds to participate in a legal exercise with no credible support from any law school graduate outside that of the YMCA Law School in Nashville (look it up if you don't believe Frodo).
It is in moments such as these that Frodo remembers just how much the Goobernator physically resembles the character "Curly" of "Three Stooges" fame. Imagine how well Newt fits into that scenario, too. Moe, perhaps?
Consider, dear reader, the true significance of the following list. Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Texas, Tennessee, and add on Kentucky and Missouri which could, and probably were, immediately assumed by you to be the States that have come forward in defence of "States' Rights." You would be partially correct. The list actually represents each of the stars on the Cross of Saint Andrew that appeared on the flags of the Confederate States of America.
This inane posturing reflects back upon the end of the unpleasantness in 1865. Frodo cannot help but remember that it was a gallant President from Illinois who stood tall in days prior and argued that it would be wrong to punish those who fought to destroy our union.
Some, it seems, have let excess carbohydrate ingestion cloud their judgments, and one of them happens to be the Goobernator. Anybody who gives rapt attention to Newt is a twit.
