Dancin' With The Superhero Who Brung Ya!

Uh, oh! The liberal wolves are howling. Last Friday night, on HBO's "Real Time With Bill Maher," the host professed disillusionment with the POTUS 44 and his 2 lefty-panelists (the other panelist — for balance — was Palin-bio film director/Teabagger Stephen K. Bannon) astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson, director of the Hayden Planetarium and Joan Walsh, former editor-in-chief of the Salon magazine chimed in with their own disappointment in the POTUS 44. In today's foray into the aftermath of the debt-ceiling crisis, Tom Tomorrow introduces "The Dissatisfied Leftist" with a "DL" emblazoned on his superhero suit. DL joins MiddleMan (the POTUS 44) and Captain Orange (House Speaker John Boner) in this thrilling episode. In "This Modern World," the superheroes are less than heroic. But, look around, there aren't any heroes on the national stage. If this is (fair & balanced) despair, so be it.
