    I don’t think I’ve ever seen such a look of misery and dejection on the face of my daughter as I just did a moment ago. She just couldn’t understand why Darrel would be going to on a road trip when so many things are wrong in this country. “Doesn’t Darrel care about us anymore?” she asked pitifully.

    I sat down with her on the sofa and (as calmly as I could) tried to explain to her why Darrel seems to be abandoning his country. “Honey, I think his boss, Mr. Rove, sent Darrel on a road trip in order to keep himself out of the newspapers. You see, he wasn’t sure if he was going to be arrested today or not, and so he planned Darrels trip ahead of time just in case…”

    I tried to keep my voice steady, but it became increasingly difficult – the rage and feelings of helplessness were just too much. I think my daughter could tell something was wrong. I found myself at such a loss for words – nothing made any sense; nothing makes sense anymore. I finally had to admit, “Honey, I just don’t know – I don’t know what’s going on in this country anymore…”

    When I finished her lower lip started to tremble and her eyes began to fill with tears, “Daddy” she said, “why are the Republicans doing this to the country?” Well, that was it for me: I finally fell apart. She just fell into my arms and we both began sobbing for several minutes.

    For once she had to comfort me and get me back on my feet. Sometimes I just think it’s too much, but seeing the strength in my young daughter’s voice helped me to get through.

  2. Have a fun weekend!

    Your daughter’s already got a strike against her with you as a parent.

    Now if your daughter doesn’t understand the concept of going away for the weekend because you’re too fucking cheap to take her; understand this, IT’S NOT BUSH’S FAULT!

    And it’s D-A-R-R-E-L-L, you feeble minded simpleton.
