Jim Hightower at the WE ARE WI rally

Glad this has been posted. You may have read Jim Hightower's column or even his books, maybe heard him the radio. He's got some great zingers in here, one-liners that he probably uses all the time, and even if he does this shit doesn't get old. Sometimes comedy is the best way to get a message across.

Rick Perry gets one of the longest boooooos I've heard (and you can also hear a couple of pro-Perry hecklers during that but other than that we didn't hear a peep out of them).

Love Jim Hightower! He and Molly Ivins make me almost forgive Texas for Dubya.

I think every state has its share of treasures and nutjobs. Every time I go to a rally like that, I always think "Molly Ivins would have been here."
