NORMALLY, when rattled from the lips and or keyboard of the rabidrunner, "Dufus" is an endearing term. (Maybe an entertaining term is more accurate. As I only make fun of people I endear.) In any event, I officially designate the next 40 days as : Countdown to Dufus.
"What happens in 40 days?" I hear you ask in bright-eyed bewilderment....
Why, let me tell you!
We will elect a Dufus. You and me. Everybody. We'll see if he turns out to be endearing.
And as an aside, if I hear either of them proclaim politicians as "public servants", I'll swear at them or fart in their general direction. They are NOT public servants. They are paid money (some more than others) and given endless perks to do work. Technically, that is an EMPLOYEE not a SERVANT or someone who performs SERVICE.
Consequently, "servant" has been used so much the dictionary people have added "government employee" to it's definition. There's a dictionary lobby out there - I'm sure of it! Does anyone know how to get a hold of them? I'd like to lobby for the addition of "Dufus".
