One in five polled admits to lying eighty per-cent of the time

Alright. I admit it. I'm impressed. I'll pretend to be the bigger man.
I walked past a bumper sticker that said "Somewhere in Kenya or Indonesia, a village is missing an idiot," with a picture of President Obama. I mean, deft parody isn't really the usual grist of the Far Right sloganeers, but this one is really, really clever. I was amused, pinked to my toes, as it were. The reference, of course, is the sticker that alleged "Somewhere in Texas, a village is missing an idiot," featuring a picture of President Bush.
Now, I couldn't have come up with a better commentary, a better burn on the subject.
Look, says the Right-leaning Sloganeer: it makes as much sense for you Leftists to suggest that Bush is from Texas, as it does for me to suggest that Obama is from either Kenya or Indonesia.
I admit, nobody on the Right has really made a big point that Bush is as Texan as Spaghetti Chili, but it's about goddamn time. Hoo-ray for what passes for public discourse.

I was going to refer to the verjuice parthenocarpy of the sloganeer, but that would be pretentious.
