The Post Turtle

Some one gave me this clip from some publication with the byline "nukenpavedave" its not real original because I heard the same story 20-30 years ago about Ted Kennedy. However I think its even more relevent as told by Mr. nukenpavedave.

While suturing a laceration on the hand of a 70 year old Massachusetts bussiness Tycoon(whoose hand had been caught in a fence while working at his country home), a doctor and the old man were talkin about Senator John Kerry possibly being in the White House one day. The old Tycoon said,"Well ya know, Kerry is a 'post turtle'." Not knowing what the old man meant, the doctor asked him wat a post turtle was. The old man said, "When you're driving down a country road and you come across a fence post with a turtle balenced on top, thats a post turtle."
The old man saw a puzzled look on the doctor's face, so he continued to explain, "You know he didn't get there by himsel. He doesn't belong there. He can't get anything done while he's up there., and you just want to help the poor stupid bastard get down."

It's pretty typical of New England yarn spinning. A tall tale with some bitter truth in it.

Golly, those New England Yarn-Spinners. *sigh* Look, If you claim to be a libertarian, then walk the walk. After reading your posts, you are just another 'rush republican' who is too weak or stupid to use the label. Your right wing has spun the nation into a fiscal catastrophe, expanded the size of government more than any administration in history, wiretapped its citizens, looted the treasury, and all you can do is whine that you can't get your fix of Ann Coulter in the newspaper at McDonald's. Ooh! clearly those darn Liberals are at it again!

Mr. Anonymous.
Although I am unapologetically a non liberal. I have never been a Bush apologist, and am one of Ann Coulters biggest critics.

BTW I spent most of my life in Massachussetts, and I grew up with these sort of parable yarns, and I've always enjoyed them and the way theu make a point.
