Daily Dose of Durst

Political comic Will Durst has a new book out, “The All-American Sport of Bipartisan Bashing,” available from Ulysses Press. A Midwestern baby boomer with a media- induced identity crisis, Durst, according to the New York Times is “quite possibly the best political satirist working in the country today.” This equal opportunity offender is exceptionally adept at swatting both partisan political piñatas upside their heads.

Lurk. Loiter. Weasel. Cower. Any of these might be more apropos.

Iran is being run by a religious fanatic who sees enemies all around him. Wonder if he has a brother named Jeb?

The White House doesn't seem to be spending too much time seeking out gouging by the oil companies. Must be too busy figuring out who's the next CIA agent they're going to discredit.

Here’s what I want to know: How exactly do we propose to build a 2,000-mile long, fourteen-foot-high fence along the Mexican border without using Mexican labor? Are they going to draft housewives from La Jolla?

It looks like George Bush’s budget was a result of faith based math. Meaning that 2 + 2 is whatever God wants it to be.

The Supreme Court isn’t expected to get rid of Roe vs. Wade, just impose a few conditions on it; like a 10-month waiting period.
