Bill in Portland, Maine -- the ONLY reason I even remember TGOS's web address -- has this wonderful quote:
If you take away the military hardware from a Republican campaign event, what you're left with is basically an Amway convention with slightly less polyester.
Although Bill might be a little mixed up. Yes, Mittens hails from Michigan, Amway's home, but it was former Governor-wannabe and neocon extraordinaire Dick De Vos who started the multi-level marketing, pyramid Ponzi scheme known as Amway.
But he's absolutely right about the polyester.
