Western Europe, The Briar Patch

Leave a comment

Yesterday I heard a conservative commentator whose name I won’t say (but it rhymes with Gill Bo-Hi-ley) comment that America is really on the wrong track because we are going to end up like western Europe.  Really?  France, Germany, and England are the boogeyman?

If that’s the bad thing we’re headed for, then I say “Just don’t throw me in the briar patch (of western Europe), Brer Fox!”
