Topic: "Evenin' Govnah" (6)
When Frodo was among the smallest of Hobbits, his father built him a go-kart. It had a 5 HP engine, oversized tires, and the only thing that kept it from flying was an absence of wings. That realization caused Frodo's father to surreptitiously add a "governor" which resulted in a severe drop in the necessary speed of 7 miles per second in order to achieve earth orbit Frodo finally figured out what had taken place without his knowledge, and has been resentful of anything reminding him of the mechanical device which ended his fun (albeit probably allowing him to achieve his twelfth birthday).
The Governor of the State of Georgia is a politician who would sell his wife into slavery in order to get votes on election day. The complete absence of competence in his Administration defiles the ideals of self-government. What bothers Frodo is that this nincompoop is merely the tip of the iceberg. Let's take a seccond to survey the landscape of those who wear the mantel of "Governor" in our great land.
Rick Perry talks about secession. Although Frodo would support the disappearance of the plague that is Texas, he finds it hard to believe that those who have served our nation in battle would feel that their sacrifices had been justified when their home state suddenly announces that it is no longer part of the US of A.
Arnold Schwarzenegger has compiled a budget deficit so enormous that Californians actually look, longingly, back at Gray Davis (that was his name, wasn't it?).
Whoever happens to be Governor of New York, and pardon Frodo for being a tad confused, is in bed with somebody else's wife as we speak (anybody want to bet against that statement given Spitzer and Patterson?).
South Carolina. Enough said.
Virginia, however, "the Mother of Presidents" and "Virginia is for Lovers" notwithstanding, has reached the apogee of gubernatorial stupidity in rocket record time. After assaulting the employment rights of those who happen to be gay or homosexual and suffer as employees of the Old Dominion, Bob McDonnell of the wind-dried tonsorial perfection, has entered the land of those who were against it before they were for it. After declaring that "Confederate History" required a level of support equivalent to "Black History," but that neither required reference to the other, the "Governor" also decided, or seemed to be deciding, that those released from prison should submit an "essay" before winning back the right to vote.
Somehow, that struck some as somewhat similar to a "literacy test." When this oversight was noted by the press, McDonnell announced that the "policy" had not yet been implemented, and was still deep in the incubation process. Then the letters started arriving at the last-known-addresses of the thousands of former felons.
Frodo has pre-drafted his own essay. Let's just say that "where the Sun don't shine" is a descriptive phrase that merits specific inclusion.
