She’s soooo right…

I’ve waxed lyrical here before about Janeane Garofalo. You readers know that I find her dreamy in the extreme. Well, she’s recently written an article about the American right wing for Vice Magazine that’s spot on.

I liked this paragraph the best:

“The right wing loves easy symbolism. They love to pretend that they are the patriots, and they love to pretend that they support the troops. But what’s their number one thing? No taxes. That’s their number one prime mover�they don’t want to pay into the system. They don’t want to take care of the infrastructure. They don’t want to pay more taxes that would result in veterans’ benefits or public education. The people of the right are the ultimate in arrogant selfishness, and they lead incredibly unexamined lives.”

Bullseye!
