The Color - Purple?

I found the "Roundtable" commentary by B. Jay Cooper in this morning's Spokesman of great interest. It brought out my artistic interest in color blending. As Bacchus did his usual paws up I noted white tummy and dirt make for gray fur. Hmmmm. It took the entire walk to come up with this.

Mr. Cooper was lamenting the likes of Ann Coulter, Bill O'Reilly, Sean Hannity and Rush Limbaugh. He was making the point these rabid dog talking heads do not define most Republicans as he knows them. I find myself wondering why, if this is true, they seem to have so much credibility. He categorizes them as entertainment; I find them annoying and annoying is not entertainment.

But back to the color spectrum. I got to thinking about how the voters within each individual state really changed many staunch red states and staunch blue states to varying shades of purple. Just think about it. When Red staters like Ms. Coulter, Mr. O'Reilly, Hannity and Limbaugh turn blue in the face with self-righteous indignation what do you get? Purple!

And poor Mr. Limbaugh. In his "rush" to out super Superman (ever note the color of Superman's heroware? Red and blue?) he found he needed a little performance enhancer. The little blue pill and a red Floridian gives you a man "purple" with rage. He wanted to protect his privacy he says; that's why the prescription in his possession was in his Doctor's name. It's not so private now.

This day and age we have precious little privacy left but I wager that if we need them we carry our own prescriptions; not one for our Doctor.

To see a man who espouses the administration that has brought about our diminishing privacy it is interesting to see him hoisted on his own petard. Nope; more than that. It IS entertainment!
