I need a drink. You do too. Let's have one together.
by Andrew Kiraly | posted October 25, 2010
What a way to start the week. I just went to the dentist and not only endured a meticulous tooth-scraping that guest-starred a dental instrument straight out of an HR Giger painting, but endured it while simultaneously enduring a relentless parade of political attack ads on the wall-mounted TV.
Sharron Angle wants to DESTROY SOCIAL SECURITY -- and replace it with a law that makes it mandatory to EAT KITTENS! Harry Reid doesn't hear the cries of the unemployed -- because no sound gets through the REINFORCED WALLS of his GOLDEN CASTLE OF INDIFFERENCE. Do you like DYING AN EXCRUCIATING DEATH IN YOUR OWN BATHROOM? Then vote for Brian Sandoval. He voted for a bill that would replace your shower water with MAGMA.
In short, I need a drink. You probably need one too. And now's your chance to momentarily push off the madness of the political season by joining me and Flo Rogers 5 p.m. Oct. 28 at Napoleon's in Paris Las Vegas. We'll be sampling Bordeaux wines, artisanal cheeses, breads, charcuterie, truffles and bon bons in a benefit for Nevada Public Radio.
Get your tickets now by clicking on the banner ad above. Not only will your ticket be supporting Nevada Public Radio, but you'll be ready to return, mind refreshed and spirit girded, for reality's regularly scheduled programming of total political insanity.
