You Know You're a Political Junkie When...

By Neil the Ethical Werewolf

...you see the headline Cloned mules win preliminary races in Nev. and you start thinking -- I didn't know that the Nevada primary had already happened!  And who voted for cloned mules?  Maybe some yellow-dog Democrats?

The story is actually about mule racing.  Well, they're descended from donkeys, so it's all good.

What is half democrat, stubborn as all get out, and sterile?

A DLCer explaining his position on Iraq or Social Security in the face of that thingy called 'reality'.

And mules are infertile because of inter-species mating. Oh, what will the children think? We need a constitutional amendment to stop that unnatural breeding. And certainly no abortions, either.

The Greeks raced with mule carts. Apparently there's a celebratory poem for one of these races that begins something like "Glorious driver of half-asses" (Too lazy to look it up.)

Since you're based in California, try vacationing in Bishop, the self-proclaimed mule capital of the world. And remember, it's dry heat.

Ezra is the Californian who lives in DC -- I'm usually in Texas.

"I'm usually in Texas."

In wet heat Texas like Beaumont? or dry hot Texas like El Paso? I have spent mercifully short periods in each and come to the conclusion of most people I know who were born in Texas. "It is a great place to be FROM"

(And citizens of Austin I apologize, I know that the balance of weather, bars, music and politics make that one city not only livable but actually inviting. But then again you are surrounded by the rest of Texas.)

Austin, actually. And yes, it's a wonderful place. I don't have my wet/dry sense properly calibrated, having lived 10 years in steamy North Carolina -- it seems dry to me but other people say otherwise.
