That damned Hope

What's Mallard raving about today?

Hope, Change, The Sixties.

I said it before, I'll say it again. Mallard hates hope.

How many stupid metaphors for "hope and change" will Mallard come up with before the election?

And if you're reading this Tinsley, no, that's not a challenge.

The Civil Rights Movement="a rip-off." Yup. Some not-so-subtle racism from nobody's favorite shithead. Is anyone surprised?

Or change the channel, and they're trying to sell you "More War in Far-off Lands", which echoes something that was truly ugly in the Sixties.

Tinsley's just jealous because he was one of those staid short-haired "bread heads" instead of being one of the cool baby boomers that made the sixties something worth remembering. I bet he was delighted when that Reganomics shit rolled around. Finally, something he could really put what was left of his heart and soul into!

"No Hope, No Change"

Now that's something McCain can deliver on!

Bashing the 1960s in 2008 would have been like spending 1968 bashing the Roaring Twenties. The statute of limitations on the Sixties expired a few Presidencies ago, Tins. Kindly find a new target.

The 60's was when "hope and change" was Nixon.

Is it actually stupid to buy into hope and change even if it's 100% false, when the promise is given for free and can offer a such a positive outlook?

I don't buy it, but I'm a curmudgeonly cynic, and I've grown up enough to know to envy people who are happy, involved, and hopeful.

Hope is a healthy human emotion.

If you don't have it, there is something wrong with you and you should seek help.

Tinsley: take note while you've still time.

I will say that the civil rights movement probably did not go far enough and that for all that we accomplished far more could have been done. That's the interpretation I would get from that, but then Tinsley isn't a liberal nor does he seem an idealist.
