A True Republican Leader

The Progressive, a magazine The Curmudgeon has come to dislike because everything about both its appearance and its content screams “amateurish” (in fact, he no longer subscribes but occasionally picks up an issue), nevertheless comes up with some juicy stuff now and then – like this one.

Jim Thompson, chairman of the Winnebago County, Illinois Republican Party chapter, ended one of his newsletters this way: “Media update for the week: saw on the news this week the offspring of a donkey and a zebra, black and white legs, rest all donkey. Not sure why this is news: Now if we can teach him to read a teleprompter, we could have two living creatures the media will fawn over that is part white, part black, and all a**!

Mr. Thompson sounds like a natural leader, doesn’t he?
