Your View: The phoenix

By Steve Gobel

JOPLIN, Mo. — Barack Obama needed Rush Limbaugh, Mark Levin and Sean Hannity to re-energize his dispirited and disenchanted base of support, and what a fine job they did. Many stood in line for over six hours to cast a vote for Obama.

They had not heard the call from Rush, Mark and Sean directly. They were alerted by Republican politicians who hearkened to the unbending, unrelenting, Jurassic Park donkey message.

What a sight it was to behold as the phoenix rose from the ashes because of three Jurassic Park donkeys.

The donkeys wouldn’t give an inch in 1860, and they lost everything in 1865.
