Me and George in Wonderland

| April 07, 2005

Washington: He’ll tell us he had to be in complete control.

Lenin: Well, yes. But anyway, when you were president George, you did it again. You retired. You didn’t have to.

Washington: And you left your people to Stalin.

Lenin: Well, yes. But you, how could you not seize the power to build America as you wanted it? Yes, yes I know, dreams and principles. But if you had taken over – and we all know you could have – you could have made sure the revolution did what you wanted it to! You coulda had it all, George!

Washington: I did. You know, you guys ought to rent a Cadillac and drive coast to coast.

Lenin: You’re not one of us George. You’re a very different man.

Then I woke up.

George Washington was born on February 22, 1732. Happy birthday, George. And from all of us who love our independence, our way of life and the freedom of the open road, thank you.
