So the G.O.P. has found its issue for the 2008 election. For the next three months the party plans to keep chanting: “Drill here! Drill now! Drill here! Drill now! Four legs good, two legs bad!” O.K., I added that last part.
It’s from George Orwell’s "Animal Farm." *lol* I know it’s weird, but I like it when a writer sticks in a literary reference, but leaves it up to the reader to figure it out. Makes me feel all clever & stuff, and deeply appreciative for my liberal arts education.
Actually, I think I read Animal Farm in junior high school… Wonderfully subversive stuff.
