QOTD: freedom


My two dogs
tied to a tree
by a ten-foot leash
kept whining and howling for an hour
till I let them off.

Now they are lying quietly on the grass
a few feet further from the tree
and they haven't moved since I let them go.

Freedom may be
only an idea
but it's a matter of principle
even to a dog.

-- Louis Dudek

Amen, brother, amen.

Worthy of the Presidency

This Guy.

At the moment this video doesn't require registration to view. It's 26 minutes long. Make popcorn.

I'd vote for this guy over either of the major candidates in a New York nanosecond. He's got the Palin "outsider" thing and blackness and all sorts of stuff going for him.

Plus, I don't think he'd want the job. That's a winning element right there, along the Cincinnatus / Buckley "phone book" line (The number's up to 635 now, from 400, but you get the drift).

And I know he'd drop dead before appearing with a pre-Presidential seal on his podium.
