When I first heard about Trump's intentions for a grand soviet style military parade I thought it was a spoof. Unfortunately I was wrong. Then I flashed on the episode of the Beverly Hillbillies where Jethro drives his Army tank around Griffith Park. Bingo!
If there is a parade, do you think the commander will demand to wear a military uniform? He is the supreme commander you know? Lots of medals on the jacket for what did Tammy Duckworth call him, Corporal Bone spurs? Our first President with five deferments, Kim Jong Don.
A thousand problems, real problems in our military, from PTSD to bad medical care at the V.A. and various forms of chemical exposure and we are going to spend millions of dollars on a dumb parade for our great leader? Perfect! Have to have lots of planes and missiles and ample adoring (not to mention nubile) servicewomen performing rockettes style dance moves.
I can't quite be sure if this is more Chaplin's Great Dictator or Marx Brother's Duck Soup. But things are getting sillier by the day. Don't you agree, comrade?
