Rabid Jackels

Bettejo and  the late Aristotle


There are millions of Americans--the majority of us--who recognize a great man when they see one. The guy with  pick and shovel,  The cashier behind the counter.

The farmer planting seed.   Young men and women dying in these senseless wars. But when greatness resides in the White House, in the most powerful office in the world, our chests swell.

He's brilliant. No one needs a dummy.


His words are elegant.  A pleasure to the ears. He has manners  befitting royalty  hosting  guests at a courtly table. If he's tall and slender and handsome with a family of equal  beauty  we're even more proud. Please, at this moment, watch a FRONT-LINE document: Inside OBAMA'S Presidency.

This young man made one grave mistake: He thought he could reason with his adversaries. He tried his best. He gave it all. But one cannot reason with rabid jackals. The best thing one can do with a rabid jackal is run.  He didn't run. He held his ground.  He'd the courage  of a madman. Madman?  It goes beyond bravery to confront such a  dangerous animal.

Frothing with greed. For money. For power. Indulging in beliefs so ridiculous they're an insult to human intelligence.  Rancor, vulgarity, and deceit are its nature. And this den of disease spawned the greatest frothier of them all.

I beg you--all of you-- don't descend to his level. May that brilliant maligned woman and that elegant elder join forces. Together they can--we can--heal.
