This needs a quick search and replace, changing out "Republican" for "NeoCon".

Despite almost hysterical warnings the president stays asleep at the wheel. He does nothing about terrorism and 9/11 happens. He responds by running away to Nebraska. Three days later he makes a supposedly impromptu speech with a bull horn on the rubble of the World Trade Center. He is universally cheered as a hero. That’s what it means to be a Republican. The president puts together false claims to go to war with the wrong country. His party universally supports him. That’s what it means to be a Republican.

The administration mismanages the war in Iraq so that it creates chaos, a breeding ground for terrorists and political opportunities for Islamic fundamentalists. Along the way, the reasons for going to war are exposed as false. The president runs on national security as his main issue. He is re-elected. That’s what it means to be a Republican.

The president cheerfully gives away the surplus to the richest people in the country. Then he runs up record debts, just to throw more money their way. He claims it has helped America’s economy. People act like they believe him. That’s what it means to be a Republican.

For the first two (simple) chairs, we hit the junkyard for seats. They’re amazingly affordable. The seat on the first chair is black leather and came from the passenger side of a 1996 Diamonte. We paid $25 for it. Sure, there’s a tiny bit of wear, but damn, it’s $25! The tan-colored seat on the second one is out of a late model Altima ($25), and the red and black seat was ordered from Nopi for around $150 with mount kit.
