As Twitchy reported, slap-happy Democratic Rep. Jim Moran is retiring after years of abuse service — which means there’s gonna be a vacancy. And who better to fill it than NRO’s Jim Geraghty?

Hells, yeah!

There are some other winners, too:

The more we think about it, the more we like it.

Sounds good to us!

Do it. And who knows? Those “fake ads” might turn into real ones.

So would we!

    Hey, I can remember when some people thought Pat Paulsen’s parody campaign was for real.

      Pat Paulsen, on gun control: “Guns don’t kill people. BULLETS kill people.”

      You may laugh, but the Feds have finally caught on to what, to them, is a “true word said in jest.”

    “As your Congressman, I solemnly pledge that I won’t do a darn thing for you. Do it yourself.”

    My congressman isn’t doing much FOR me right now– no diff there. I’d settle for him just not doing anything TO me. Come right down to that– he being a Democrat, I’d rather he did nothing, period, end of.

    Moran’s district is D +16. There’s no way Republican can win there.

      But it’d be fun to make those Dims heads hurt with the possibility.

    Since we cannot know very much about the intricate details of the gadgets, gizmos, and gasoline that we depend upon, we have no choice but to rely upon the liberty of others to produce, deliver, and improve them.

    This is Ronald Reagan warmed over: “Gov’t doesn’t solve problems. Gov’t IS the problem.”
    We’ve been fighting this battle since FDR used the Great Depression to usher in the New Deal.
    Never let a crisis go to waste, or bilk it for all it’s worth.
    If it wasn’t for Pearl Harbor, we’d still be in the Great Depression.
    It’s time for another Pearl Harbor, on Big Gov’t.
    But, yeah, that would not be business as usual.
    The business of America is business.
    It is not the business of the Federal government.
    That would be more of a Fascist, corporatist arrangement, or the earlier Prussian Socialism.
    (You really have to wonder what, exactly, the beef W. Wilson and FDR had with Germany, in their time. Maybe, it was just jealousy.)
