Re: Political views?
As a rule of thumb, I hate Republicans. Don't like Democrats either, but I hate Republicans. That is not to say I hate all Republicans or disagree with the concept of small government and low taxes. I merely hate most Congressional Republicans due to their hypocritical and self-delusional views.
Dali: "I know what the picture should be ... We take a duck and put some dynamite in its derriere. When the duck explodes, I jump and you take the picture."
Halsman: "Don't forget that we are in America. We will be put in prison if we start exploding ducks."
Dali: "You're right. Let's take some cats and splash them with water."
