Manglers March Toward Defeat and Oblivion ... but they deserve more than being thrown out of office by the electorate

Mac MacArthur

This morning, cable news is obsessed by the GOP's not-so-subliminal commercial that labels so-called bureaucrats -- or is it Democrats -- "RATS."

About the only other race they're even bothering to talk about is Hillary Clinton's race against cowlicked child-congressman Rick Lazio.

Well, folks, don't forget those damned "House Managers" -- or Manglers, as I called them over the past two years and still prefer to call them.

They attempted to :

Almost all of these swine are running for re-election -- and Howdy Doody look-alike Bill McCollum actually has the cheek to run for the U.S. Senate in Florida.

I have a word for you Floridians -- shout out loud and clear that America, and particularly Florida, does not cotton to midget Neonazis like McCollum. Throw him out of office altogether.

And as far as California Congress-fascist Jim Rogan is concerned, he's finished.

I hear tell that the "House Managers PAC" (you just have to wonder which moron came up with that name) had to cancel its -- get this -- "TRIBUTE TO KEN STARR," supposedly a fundraiser to save these devil's asses.

Well, guess what? The Gestapo had to cancel their little fundraiser because the most despised man in America -- Ken Starr -- isn't what you'd call a big ticket these days. The little slimeball sits in his home these days yearning for that bygone time when he could waltz by his trash cans in the driveway, wave to the press, and lie about a "search for the truth" and the "rule of law."

As far as the House Manglers are concerned, every one of them should be indicted for abuse of process, sedition and other federal crimes, including violations of Civil Rights law, post haste.

Of course, this won't happen, because they probably have "FILES" on every powerful Democrat which they would trot out at a moment's notice in a cheap, Stalinesque attempt to destroy yet another human being.

But then, what more would you expect?

Take the New Texas Achievement Test!

Governor Dubya has produced astonishing improvements in Texas students' test scores, particularly among minorities. Confused by critics' charges that the tests have been dumbed down ("Dubya'd down") to artificially increase scores, Bush released this copy of the new test.

Can you out-think the Texas students whose pollution-addled brains have to deal with this test?   Try it!

1-2 points - Good enough! I hear Yale calling!

7-8 points - Just really good! Really!
9-10 points - Smartypants! Trying to show up your brothers, huh?

Daddy doesn't care. He's never satisfied! Ever! He's even proud of Neil, but you'll never measure up!
