Of Thee I Sing

The Rude Pundit starts us down a good road with this, even though I’m a little too distracted by his imagery with regard to Howard Dean’s big, powerful arms to fully appreciate it:

While the right wing media has tried to portray the Democrats as turning against Dean. Andrea Mitchell, who hasn’t seen Alan Greenspan’s personal interest rate rise in years (“C’mon, Al, gimme more than a quarter percent”), reported Monday that Dean was “making Democrats nervous.” And there’s quotes out there where people like Joe Biden and Nancy Pelosi say Dean doesn’t speak for all Democrats. But surely there’s some confusion in the ranks, when such a prominent, public face of the party takes off the gloves. More than anything, it’s like a bunch of Missouri high schoolers around the lockers in 1963, when the first guy walked in after summer break with long hair. Sure, sure, everyone teased him for being gay or girly. But then everyone saw the Beatles on Sullivan, and barbers went broke.

So Howard’s our vanguard. And Harry’s the Beatles:

CNN is reporting that Minority Senate Leader Harry Reid has issued an ultimatum to President Bush: �Produce the documents we requested, or no Bolton. �Period.

“You can’t ignore the Senate. We’ve told them what we’ve wanted. The ball is in his court,” Reid, D-Nevada, told CNN. “If they want John Bolton as ambassador to the United Nations, give us this information. If they don’t, there will be no Bolton.”

Damn, he’s good. �Harry Reid knows when to call your bluff, and boy, you better be holding the political cards or you’re going to pay.

Sing with me, Patriots, Atriots, Deaniacs, Kickass Democrats everywhere:

Well I’m upper upper class high society

God’s gift to ballroom notoriety

And I always fill my ballroom

The event is never small

The social pages say I’ve got

The biggest balls of all

I’ve got big balls

I’ve got big balls

They’re such big balls

And they’re dirty big balls

And he’s got big balls

And she’s got big balls

(But we’ve got the biggest balls of them all)
