  1. Let “Parasol” guard the family health.

  2. Felt hat. Historical Revisionism. Lies!

  3. In 1938, Time Magazine declared Adolf Hitler “Man of the Year”. In the same year he took full and absolute command over the German military, stated that he intended to crush Czechoslovakia, took greater control over Austria by threatening to invade, and expelled 12,000 Jews from Germany.

    S’funny, from what I gather Time is gonna name O! man of the year for 2008…

    But of course, there’s absolutely no correlation between the two events…

    Still, he did employ underhanded methods in his rise to power and again condone ACORN fraud and engage in shape shifting positions that evolved as necessary to fit the moment and audience during this years campaign. Also, he had no compunction using a multitude of virtual, electronic, and labor supplied Brownshirts to shout down any opponents or journalists wishing to air the inconvenient truths from his past wether in oerson, by e-mail, or over the telephone; mobs that could mobilize at the drop of an action alert from O! central command. And, let’s not forget about his brilliant campaign manager Josef GoebblesDavid Axelrod; this guy arranged the best mass adoration events since those filmed by Leni Riefenstahl…

    But, I mean, by even talking about any of this I’m violating Godwin’s law…

    And revealing myself as a hate-filled, wingnut, bitter, RAAAAAAAAAACIST!

    Feel free to denounce me…

  4. Fess Parker wore a coonskin cap.

    That’s all that matters.

  5. When the stock market crashed in 1929, President Roosevelt went on TV and explained things to the American people.

  6. I remember that, TaiChiWawa! He wore a red tie!

  7. I remember that, TaiChiWawa! He wore a red tie!

    Yeah, it clashed with his wheelchair. How gauche!

  8. Style is SO important with fireside chats!

  9. With the honey being involved and all, I’d expect those contraceptive inventing Egyptian women had some hellacious cases of candidiasis going on. But then maybe a taste for mead was a thing among Egyptian men?

  10. But then maybe a taste for mead was a thing among Egyptian men?

    Eeew! Consider yourself denounced.

  11. well, thanks for this, Dan. I got a chuckle today because RTO’s grandmother was rambling and somehow landed on Daniel Boone hat and RTO said, “He actually preferred a felt cap” and then his mom says, “Well, Fess Parker always wore one.”

    I wonder if this conversation isn’t happening over and over again around the world.
