For years we thought Stevie Nicks was singing "Just like a one winged dove" when she was actaully singing "Just like the white winged dove." We prefer our version. White winged doves are a dime a dozen. One winged doves, on the other hand, are rare, mainly because they can't fly and ultimately get eaten by cats. And what could be a better and more important subject for a song than that? Somebody has to stand up for one winged doves, and we thought it was Stevie Nicks. But no. Anywy, we heard the song the other day and were singing along in our best Stevie Nicks falsetto, when Mrs. UF told us to pipe down. But she didn't correct us when we sang "one winged dove," so evidently the misapprehension of Nicks' lyric is common. Because people care about one winged doves, whereas they don't give a good shit about white winged doves. So there Stevie Nicks. You can be fey or you can be compassionate. One winged doves will thank you if you record a new version. If you don't, we'll all know you're cruel and don't care a whit about an important issue, the transplantation of new wings on one winged doves. If it can be done. Which we highly doubt.
According to Mitt Romney, President Obama has the do-nothing, pay-no-taxes, expect government to support you vote sewn up. He may be right. But he has an insidious plan to steal this part of the Obama vote. He'll take away their entitlements, which just keep them trapped in a cycle of poverty,and offer them free square dancing lessons instead. After all, everyody loves to square dance, especially the black welfare mothers he imagines when he talks about the eo-nothing, pay-no-taxes, expect government to pay your bills part of the electorate. Let them do-si-do, and they will surely feel more self-worth, and are sure to vote Republican on November 2. And the best part is he'll outsource the teaching to China, which means that America will have a population rich in spoken-chinese square dancers. Kwan di do your corner girl, anyone?
