Bottoms up!

Proof of God? I say it can be found in sweet yummy poetic justice and I just heard on Paul Harvey on hell of a dussy. According to Paul Harvey’s Wednesday Morning report a monument erected to Carry A. Nation was demolished.

For those who don’t know Carry A. Nation was a nut job fascist anti-alcohol vandal in the later part of the 19th century. She had married a drunk after the Civil War and then blamed all her problems on alcohol. Her response was to go around with a hatchet and smash things, namely bars, bottle and kegs. She didn’t drink, she didn’t want you to drink and she was willing to use violence to achieve her goals.

Vee haf vays ov makink you trink.

Someone willing to use violence in order to force me to live the way they think I should live is, I believe, the very definition of a fascist. So, what’s the delicious justice doled out that Paul reported? Well in Wichita, a place where she was very busy with her famous hatchet, a drinking fountain had been erected in her honor, a drinking fountain that was smashed to bits by a run away beer truck. Ha!

NOTE: This post marks the occasion that DublinSaab with 132 posts has now exceeded the 131 posts on the An Old Saab blog in which Evil Jeremy and I were teamed up.

Interesting. The request has been passed up to Mr. Cucullu.

Happy 132nd! (Not much of a ring to that, I'm afraid.) Carry Nation was an evil, evil woman.

How were you teamed up with EJ for that many posts and yet came out uncontaminated by his leftiness? :-)

Actually, NC, it was kind of fun to have a "crossfire" style blog, although DS contributed a lot more to it than I did. But yes, amazingly, he emerged unscathed from the withering intensity of my leftism.
