It would be a shame if Republicans went extinct - they give us so many great laughs.
On the conservative Oregon Catalyst site, somebody has posted three photos today. One shows the late Ronald Reagan clearing brush with a chainsaw. One shows George W. Bush clearing brush. And the third shows Barack Obama hanging curtains.
The implication, in case you're not into the whole symbolism thing, is that Reagan and Bush were and are manly men, whereas the new Democratic president is a girly man - an implication that was not lost on those who posted witty comments like this one:
"Obama - 'Oh, I would NEVER use a NASTY chain saw - they KILL TREES!! I would NEVER kill a tree - only babies and only up until they could be born.'"
The three photos and the responses reminded us of the dumbest bumper sticker ever printed - the one showing Bush and Reagan in cowboy hats with the words, "My heroes have always been cowboys."
Neither Reagan nor Bush was a real cowboy, of course - although at least Reagan played cowboys in the movies and could even ride a horse well, while The Shrub actually was afraid of horses, according to Mexican President Vicente Fox, who described him as a "windshield cowboy" - the type who prefers to drive.
But we guess anybody stupid enough to think that hanging curtains makes a man a wimp is stupid enough to think that wearing a cowboy hat makes a man a cowboy.
