Last Night I had the Strangest Dream
As I sat in the office grinning like the Cheshire cat, Smokey Diamond—our intrepid reporter came in.
“What’s the grin about,” she asked.
“I had the strangest dream last night,” I said. “You know how all the tea-partiers have gone home to their carefully gerrymandered districts—the one’s where more than 70% of the people agree with the tea-party craziness. In my dream, we built huge electrified, anti-immigration style fences around each of the districts to keep the crazies in.”
“Joe Arpaio, former sheriff of Arizona, was reading and railing about the set of Kafkaesque requirements for reentering the country outside of this huge building complex.” Best of all, in the dream I got a clear look at the sign above the building, which said Fare and Balenced, the new home of Fox News.”
Smokey smiled—which I must say is as hard to witness as it is to imagine.
