When white-man cam to the new world, he cleared the land and tamed the fauna. Well, now that the last tree has been cut down, Paul Bunyan is no longer relevent. And after the last mustang had been tamed, Pecos Bill was a thing of the past. But for the new challanges, we need a person of mythological fortitude, and drive, and tenacity. So npr gives us the new American legend...henry paulson. He's a man of super-human strength and determination; a man who never sleeps. But as Paul Bunyan had his blue ox Babe, and Pecos Bill his steed Widow Maker, henry paulson needs no companion (other than his toy poodles georgie and benny-not to insult toy poodles).
Really, the fairy-tale world in which npr 'reporters' exist has become more of a nightmare in baby-talk and pablum

I had to expose myself this morning to the tail-end of a half-hour just to catch a traffic report, but here was an oh-so-advisory segment by Nena Totenbag about how Biden would do well to be easy on his opponent for the upcoming debate. That's right, Joe - just play dumb for the tenderfoot and let's all grade it on a curve.

Paulson has one fatal flaw: his voice. It's the voice of smoky backroom whiskey-riddled ganglord. I wouldn't trust him further than I could spit in a hurricane. But NPR don't know no better.

Well, b!p!, we shall see if Mighty Joe will follow NPR's legal lady of fashion 'n etiquette and behave like a gentleman around Miss LensCrafters at that there dee-bate. If he's mean 'n nasty, he'll have Nina's shrieking hell to pay, just like that old senator from Wyoming a few years back.
