Following Obama’s comments last week regarding small-town America, a journalist decided to criss-cross the country through the small towns of America to get their opinions. As the journalist was passing through a long desolate stretch of I-20 through Texas, he sees a rancher mending his barbed-wire fence..so he decides to stop and talk to the Texan.
Upon approaching the rancher, the journalist sees he is an older, gangly looking gentleman. Definitely weathered, but still working his ranch. The journalists introduces himself.
Journalist – Excuse me, sir?
Rancher – Howdy.
Journalist – I’ve been crossing the country to speak to our small-town Americans looking to get their reactions regarding Senator Obama’s comments last week. You know, about being bitter and clinging to religion and their guns and what not? Would you care to comment.
Rancher – Sure. He’s a post turtle.
Journalist – A what?
Rancher – A post turtle.
Journalist – Would you care to explain what that is?
Rancher – Sure. Well. You know how when you’re driving down a country road..well, maybe you don’t….but, as you’re driving down a country road, you come across a fence post, much like this one here, with a turtle balancing on top of it. We call that a post turtle.
Journalist – Okay. But, what does that have to do with Senator Obama?
Rancher – Well. You know he didn’t get up there by himself. You know he doesn’t belong up there. He sure as hell doesn’t know what to do now that he is up there, and, you just want to help the dumb ass get down on the ground where he belongs.
That’s the best explanation for Obama I have heard … Don’t know where this came from, it came to me in an e-amil from a friend.
