Perhaps no piece has summed up for me my feelings about the Republican Rebuttal like this one. The resemblance is uncanny.
And because I haven't given a Buttersby update in like forever, I had an epiphany yesterday out of the blue for the sequel (if I ever write one). Let's just say take Buttersby and add a good dose of Temple of Doom, with extra mysticism. And maybe Nazis, because they make any plot better, right? Not human Nazis, though. No--we're talking vampire bat Nazis. Who worship the Chupacabra. Oh yeah. :-)
