Archie Bunker vs Meathead
Remember All in the Family? Archie Bunker was this guy who was rather set in his ways and had a very jaundiced, reactionary view of the world. Along comes meathead, Archie's son-in-law, with all this long hair and new ideas. Archie made a big deal about how meathead was so dumb and clueless, but you could tell that meathead threatened Archie's world view a great deal. Just meathead's very existence drove Archie to the edge. The more Archie lost it the more the viewer got to see the small, bigoted man underneath. After reading this the idea occurred to me that the democrats are quickly becoming the Archie Bunker to Bush's meathead.
At least for one more election. After which they will hopefully realize they need to represent us instead of themselves.Post a Comment
