Tuesday April 28th

The comic:


Was he ever called the American idol? Is there an American idol? (Not counting the stupid show.)

Or are Pluggers just being grumpy old misanthropes again. I thought old people liked American Idol the show, since it was cleaner than most of the rest and they sometimes have oldies nights.

But Pluggers like to watch John Wayne movies. So much so that they idolize him. Well, he's dead, so I guess he makes a good idol.

And it's not John Wayne they idolize, it's what he represents - the "right" American way of life. (I don't mean right as in right/left politically, I mean right as in not wrong.) An America where kids stayed off their lawns and respected their elders, by gum! Hey old people! Want respect? Than move to a country that's less obsessed with youth, where they do revere their elders, like Japan! (Yeah, I just "move-to-france-d" a Plugger!)

As John Ford once said, "I just love that goddam Republican."

John Wayne's movies kind of sucked. There, I said it. Somebody had to. I don't care who's offended by it.

John Wayne made over one hundred movies -- many sucked but some are classics. Now, if you had said that 'The Searchers' sucked then you'd have a fight on your hands.

Just because it would turn Pluggers gray hair white then make it all fall out:

John Wayne was a Nazi
He liked to play SS
Kept a picture of Apolph,ole boy,
Tucked in his cowboy vest
Sure he would string up your mother
Sure he would torture your pa
Sure he would march you up to the wall
Sure he would hang you by your last ball

He was a Nazi
But not anymore
He was a Nazi
Life evens the score

I figured Elvis was the Plugger "American Idol" but John Wayne works too. Public Enemy said it best when they said,

Elvis was a hero to most
But he never meant shit to me you see
Straight up racist that sucker was
Simple and plain
Mother fuck him and John Wayne
