It’s a hot, humid day, one that could precipitate a surly mood. I succumb.
I don’t like what I observe from the body politic of this country. There are way too many “dittoheads,” a term that Rush Limbaugh’s followers define themselves as. I would consider such a moniker a gross insult to my ability to think for myself.
However, the disease of dittohead-ness is not confined to the sycophants of Limbaugh. It knows no boundaries but is endemic to the political establishment of both major parties.
The other day I heard the old John Lennon song, “Gimme Some Truth:”
I’ve had enough of reading things
By neurotic, psychotic, pig-headed politicians
All I want is the truth
One thing is for certain and that is that you won’t get truth from politicians. My advice is to look somewhere else for truth and don’t be anyone’s dittohead.
