What We Need

What America needs is a good dictatorship.
No, really, I'm serious.
Yeah, I know there's folk who think
we're currently sliding toward dictatorship,
but it's a BAD dictatorship.
Yeah, we've become a nation of morons
happily watching Happy Days and Survivor and American Idol
and brain-washing ourselves into believing we could LOVE McDonald's.
So, what we need,
what we really, really need,
is a benevolent dictator.
Someone to show us the way.
Someone to save us from ourselves.
Where's Plato's Philosopher King
when you need him?

Well, just so you know,
I'm available for the job.
