THE GENTLE ART OF PERSUASION

In celebration of the fact that the GOP is going to get a good old fashioned ass wuppin' tomorrow for being so naughty during the last eight years, I thought I would post another recovered book. This one illustrates nicely one of Dubya's many dubious gifts that he will leave behind as part of his "legacy". It is an inspiring read that will really put a fresh spin on the gentle art of persuasion;


More to come in my own "recovered books" series soon (inspired by Boon Ninja), though there will be no posting tomorrow night for some strange reason. I suppose it is because that interactive electoral map on CNN is so damn mesmerizing that I won't be able to peel myself away from the TV.

The one exception of course will be after Obama's victory speech, where I will jump and sing towards the eternal sky while playing bongos in tandem with Carl Orff's "O Fortuna". I will likely be celebrating in unison with many other folks around the world who may for a moment dare to believe that better days might just be around the corner!

I am ready to believe in better days. And things are looking rather sweet right now. Maybe not in our country, but we can see it from here.

are the Canadians as happy as we are? it's got to be a relief that your next door neighbor will soon be someone who is sane and stable and capable who will be in control of the nuclear arsenal rather than a right wing lunatic.

Better days indeed Matthew. And kudos on the 'recovered book' project. Some truly inspired stuff there.

Hi All

I really appreciate the comments from this esteemed group - and I echo the sentiment of embracing better days ahead - Obama is no superhero and there are many challenges ahead, but if anything the new level of hope, possibility and civilized discourse he is bringing to the table is a much needed breath of fresh air!
