Kansas. Tornadoes. Kind of makes me think, "We're off to see the Wizard, the Wonderful Wizard of Oz."
Surely, if we just stay the course on this yellow brick road, we will find our way back home from the evil war in Iraq, and our nation will be rebuilt after hurricanes and tornadoes and everyone will live happily ever after.
But wake up, Dorothy. It's all just a bad dream. The yellow brick road ends up leading to a phony bureaucracy in Oz, and the great and powerful Wizard is just a silly little man who has a few tricks up his sleeve and knows how to project himself as the great decider.
What can we do now, Good Witch Hillary?
I know, for myself, I'm clicking my red shoes together as hard as I can. I'll close my eyes and repeat: "There's no place like home. Bring the troops home. Bring the National Guard home!"
What's the matter with Kansas? Why isn't the devastation caused by the great twister being cleaned up? It's the same old story. They voted for a snake-oil salesman (George W. Bush) and got a snake (Dick Cheney).
