Abraham Lincoln said that “by forty a man has the face he deserves.” And now on the bicentennial of his 1809 birth, boy, oh boy, do us 1946-64 Baby Boom cases have the kissers to prove it! This is the mug, as seen today on the ephemeral screens of MSN, of Georgia poison peanut king, Peanut Corporation of America CEO Stewart Parnell, who took the Fifth when grilled by the Congress, about possibly criminal emails sent by him. Allegedly, Parnell authorized the distribution of dirty or bad peanuts. These were used in turn to grind out hydrogenated oil-laced (and, now, salmonella-infested as well) unhealthy welfare grades of peanut butter. This stuff mainly was sold to the indigent wards of America’s nursinghomes, and our poor children on foodstamps. Mr Parnell, who resembles to an uncanny degree the troubled Illinois (you guessed it!) Still-Governor Blagojevich, is obviously a downy bird and a great American businessman, providing simply and humbly for the needs of our nation’s poor as best he can. Clearly in view of his relentless persecution by the Obama Democracy, he fully deserves a national day all of his own — maybe six months opposite to Abe Lincoln!
