Miss Daisy Muses

From ABC News on Hill'ry's RFK gaffe... That said, history is history, and Sen. Clinton has been rather clumsily using it to justify her continued candidacy, a candidacy that should be able to rise or fall on its own merits.
"It's sort of like show and tell," Daisy said dreamily as the sagging shade rode the langorous, torpid breeze slowly back and forth across the dusty window sill.

"How's that?" dawdled Leroy feigning interest, his dwindling attention mostly spent on the physics of droplet condensation and the slow march of bulbous liquid down the side of his mint julep glass, although Leroy's intellectual budget allowed for nothing beyond cursory perception, a mayfly held above the puddle by surface tension and light weight.

"Well," continued Daisy, pleased to capture a slow-footed nuance and bear it home aloft in triumph, "Clinton doesn't do a very good job in front of the class with history and Obama has a hard time with geography, and Bush just murders English."

"But all these people have fancy college degrees, Daisy? How can that be?"

"I don't know, Leroy; it just passes me by. When we do get a smart one like, oh, I don't know, Woodrow Wilson, he thinks he can save the world. GIve me the dumb and the uninvolved any day: Harding, Coolidge, and prosperity. It's amazing how sometimes nothing can be a real cool hand."

"Damn, Daisy. That's a great idea for a movie," Leroy allowed.
