One great thing about being completely out of touch with popular culture is that, on the off chance I actually have a great idea, I get to enjoy by surprise the excitement of validation when I discover that someone else has already thought of it.
This happened recently when I hit Dan and Bruce up with the following concept:
I already know of a couple friends of mine who voted for Obama and are regretting it. With the abominable “stimulus” bill, the outrageous pork-laden budget, and the way they’re going after private citizens who dare question them (sound familiar, plumbers?), I imagine these won’t be the last who suffer Obama’s Remorse. So, I figure, maybe we should start a support group.
I wasn’t sure what form this group could or should take, so I asked Bruce and Dan what they thought. Bruce suggested I set up a group on Facebook. Instead, I did a search, and lo and behold, there already is a group! I haven’t contacted the originator of this group, but I think the young man from California who started it will soon see an uptick in members. I hope the group is cathartic for the members, and folks can feel free to join without feeling embarrassed.
Pass on the link to your friends who voted for Obama. Have them put it in their favorites if they haven’t yet felt regret for the mistake they’ve made. They’ll be looking for it again, I imagine, before too long.
We’ll keep you updated as to the membership numbers…
