HARVARD SQUARE COMMENTARY

He of Footsie Fame

Just read that Senator Larry Craig (R) of Idaho will be defended by the ACLU.

By the way, did you see the marvelous Wasserman cartoon in the Boston Globe?  Shows two men at the sinks in a Men’s Room, looking over at a stall, where a foot is reaching out.  One says to the other not to worry, that this is just an example of Republican outreach!


Erectile Dysfunction

Now Viagra has a competitor in Cialis, I’m getting tired of the competing ads on television.  They show a couple in various situations, apparently intended to hint - politely, of course - at foreplay.  I have been heard to mumble, irritated at it all, “Why the hell don’t they just fuck?”


American Mercenaries

If I remember my American history correctly, the American revolutionaries were very critical of the Mother Country for sending Hessian mercenaries over to the colonies.  Ah, but it is okay in G. W. Bush’s country.  Blackwater is accused of killing eight Iraqi civilians, and the Iraqi government (puppet ‘tho it is) wants it gone!


Willard Romney’s Flip Flops

I see that Willard Romney - he who is ashamed of his given name! - is criticizing the health plan put forth by Hillary Clinton last week.  Strange!  It is very similar to the Massachusetts provisions adopted when he was governor!
