There's a place for people who laugh at nothing...

In today's Day by Day, Damon and Jan talk about that topic that has everyone all heated up, so to speak.

Attack Cartoons tells us he tried to do a photo essay over the weekend, but had trouble.

Don Surber tells us that the Republicans are blocking a Congressional pay increase. I've decided that members of Congress should get paid a dollar a year, and be content with the privilege of serving their country. As it is, they make at least twice what the highest-paid person on my friends' list makes, which, as Don points out, puts them in the top 3 percent of earners. And they have the unmitigated gall to lecture us about making money? (I will point out that at this point I had gone into a rant that probably would have caused most of you to leave, but edited it out. Too bad for you. It was a good one.)

I had wondered how many people noticed that fondness for Che Gueverra among those lovers of peace and freedom. Were they, as your reference says, born without capacity for irony? Are they too lazy to read anything longer than a bumper sticker or a sweatshirt? Or are they just really dumb?

It's kind of like Klan members wearing shirts with the image of Malcome X.

What I do know is that if I were the guy's father, I'd be thinking about all the things I could have done with the money I saved to put him through school. He's probably a trust fund kid or a perpetual student who's living off of stipends and who has thousands of dollars of unpaid student loans. I mean, really, everything about him says, "I'm a pathetic loser who will never make a positive contribution to society." Of course, he'll probably end up running for Congress, and given that he's from California, he would stand a better than even chance of getting elected.

He reminds me of a joke that Myron Cohen used to tell (the one he claimed was the only dirty joke he knew): A man is sitting in a bar when a character who looks like Chinpubes walks in. He sits and watches the guy as he drinks his beer. Finally, the hippie turns to him and says, "What?" The guy says, "Excuse me, but about twenty-five years ago I did a stretch in prison for having sex with a buffalo. Are you my son?"

People who idolize Che Guevara fall in love with the picture and don't know anything about him.
