I suggest that the display of idiocy unfolding in D.C. over the debt ceiling ought to be made into a film with the title, The Swines You Sent to Washington. It would be a tragic-comedy, of course, starring the ‘leadership’ of Congress. I’m quite sure that a person with much more talent than I could work it into a Star Wars/Muppets redux. However, Ms. Piggy is much too dignified and intelligent to be cast in the role of Boehner or Cantor- so don’t go there. Clearly, though, the Mos Eisley Cantina on the planet Tatooine with its cast of galactic oddities is ripe for members of the Tea Party.
Who, though, will be cast as Darth Vader or Luke Skywalker?
I feel as if I am one of those Muppet old farts in the balcony, Statler and Waldorf, making odd comments on the proceedings unfolding on stage below. Perhaps these characters are the most wise of all because, after all, this comic relief is single thread that loosely tethers me to sanity.
