The frustration I’m feeling at the Democrats el foldo regarding the continued funding of the Iraq war is overwhelming. Checks and balances my aunt Fanny.
I hereby retire as an “activist” [here’s a sign I wrote and that my then fellow Socialist/Peacenick buddy, Jeremiah Duboff, carried at a peace rally in San Francisco] and resume my pre-Nixon “don’t bum me out about it” stance when I was a happy [well, at least happier] ostrich.

I haven’t given up the “good fight.” We have, however, lost Jeremiah. He’s become a born-again conservative. What a mindfuck.
