Don Quixote’s Lanser

What the Hell? Why NOT?!

Jerry Lanser is the lone lancer for the knights of the oddly-shaped teabag. He and Don Quixote share a common tradition – they both ‘dream the impossible dream’ and Jerry’s dreamin bigger than even Obama can.

Jerry’s not deep-pocketed, Jerry doesn’t hobnob with the wealthy and powerful (yet) but he’s tilting at that big federal windmill with everything he’s got – which ain’t much by his own account. A humble man. Mr. Lanser goes to Washington.

It’s hard being a teabagger.

Some days it’s extra-special hard.

But I suppose there are worse things than spending your summer vacation in Iowa, especially if you can get your face on the teevee and have that fifteen seconds of fame to spout your talking points.

Oh, the glory… transitory as it is.

Shine Jerry, shine on you crazy diamond.

Somewhere Don Quixote is smiling and nodding.

And so are we.

    Oh my, this poor soul needs a Sancho Panza. Not as a loyal sidekick, but as the voice of practicality. Certainly, no voice of reason would be effective since this man is a member of the Republican Tea Party, a group beyond all reason.

    At this late date I confess he’d be a suitable substitute for RMoney – and I bet a lot in the GOP are thinking the same! :-D
