For months I've held out hope that somebody someplace would retain a sense of humor in the wake of the on-going battle over health care. There had to be a person who fell midway between the mentally unbalanced Glen Beck and his followers and uber righteous liberals. A person who looked at the health care debate debacle and poke fun at it.
That person exists in the form of W.W. Clyde Reid of Glendenen Beach, Oregon who wrote the following letter to the editor of the Oregonian.(www.oregonlive.com)
"I've heard that under the Obama health care plan, the government will send out teams of Nazi scientists to abduct our children from their homes and schools, drill holes in their skulls, extract their brains and feed them to squirrels.
" And not to just any squirrels, but to Socialist squirrels. The plan is unAmerican and must be stopped. I know this is true because it was on FOX News. Thank you for allowing me to participate in this civilized, intelligent discussion of one of the leading social issues of the day."
Thanks Mr.Reid for your cogent comments. I'll be on the lookout for Socialist squirrels. Aren't they the ones with the red tails?
