Happy Republican Recession, My Friends

Today is Friday, 7 November 2008.

I’m not the only one who has long thought that “Irony” is my middle name.

(Many rightians, of course, prefer my middle name to be words, enclosed in quotation marks, unsuitable for publication in a family newspaper such as this.)

How ironic, and iconic: the Republican Party has spent more than a century vilifying “Reds” of various hue: radic-libs, Commies, socialists, feminists, plain vanilla liberals, etc.

But they name the states of the Union they dominate … “red”.

Might it be that the Republicans are pondering the fact that more than 2/3rds of the USA/USE national debt was incurred under … Republican presidents?

Might it be that the Republicans are pondering those eight, most recent years, of Republican rule, when Redpublican policies flushed the USA/USE economy straight down into the “red” zone?

I retort, you decide.

And, by the way, happy anniversary in 1917 of the Bolshevik Revolution.

Reds is one of my favourite movies. (But you knew that, eh?)
