The Left is Just Too Darn Nice to Win Elections, Part II

Eric tips me to this gushing review of a play starring Sigourney Weaver and John Lithgow.

The lead character (Weaver) claims she got knocked up by George Bush in college, and of course had an abortion, most likely at gunpoint. (The last bit is my guess.)

Mrs. Farnsworth's Subtle Act of Sedition

Yes, very subtle.


His uproarious new play, "Mrs. Farnsworth," is a devastating takedown of the commander in chief, in its serenely subversive way far more scathing than any attack ad produced by the Democrats or caricature perpetrated by "Saturday Night Live."


But the book for which she has come to Gordon, seeking his advice, is not even close to discreet. Egged on by the class -- other actors are planted among us -- she reveals the scandal at the heart of her story: She claims to have gotten pregnant long ago after a date with a Yalie, the hard-drinking scion of a wealthy family and the grandson of a U.S. senator. And she says she was offered money to have an abortion.

"It's Bush!" cries Gordon.

"I never say," replies the coy Mrs. Farnsworth, who, in the course of things, does.

More proof of Saint Susan of San Fransisco's thesis: those lefties are just too gentlemanly and virtuous to sink into the gutter of personal attacks and slanders.

More Proof Still: Liberals are just such paragons of restraint and fairness (and such connossieurs of Filet-O-Fish sandwiches) that they are forced by conservative Big Meanies to recycle Bush abortion charges from IndyMedia.

More in sadness than anger, you understand. They didn't want to do this of course; it just, well, Bush has a lead now. We've "bullied" them into doing this by besting them.

I just hope they don't pick up on this account of George W. Bush's FBI trained bisexual rapists/assassins, a Polymorphously Perverse Praetorian Putschsquad.
