What was not but could have been
Was my obsession way back when

Sarah Nesbit, Walking Home, 2006

* Top ten conservative idiots. excerpt:

"9. Virginia Foxx

"Speaking of GOP politicians with fake names, check out former porn star Rep. Virginia Foxx. What's that? She's not a porn star, it's her real name? Oh.

"Anyway, last week Rep. Foxx decided to stop beating around the bush and just come right out and say why voters should cast their ballots for the GOP this fall.

"Rep. Virginia Foxx says she believes God will judge people for sins of omission as well as commission, so the Banner Elk Republican had a message she couldn't keep to herself.

"'You should fear for your country,' Foxx told a gathering of members of the Charlotte Chamber of Commerce.

"The Democratic majority in Congress has become 'bolder and bolder' with tax dollars and the rules of the House, she told the business leaders at their annual Washington meeting.

"'I am trying to scare you to death,' she said.

"Desperation much? Points for honesty I suppose, but someone should probably tell Virginia that her strategy went out with the Republican majority in 2006."

* "In a nation ruled by swine, all pigs are upwardly mobile—and the rest of us are fucked until we can put our acts together: not necessarily to win, but mainly to keep from losing completely. We owe that to ourselves and our crippled self-image as something better than a nation of panicked sheep." -- Hunter S. Thompson
