So Rick McGinnis and I were joking via email that Exene was selling all her stuff on the sidewalk because she’d become a nutty menopausal broad with no retirement plan and probably lots of cats and no husband.
Now when I think about California, I think of a liberal oppressive police state and regulations and taxes and fees. I’d rather go someplace and have my own little place out on the edge of town. I’m a country girl at heart. It makes me happy when I see people in Texas open-carrying. It makes me feel safe. I’m not even a gun owner, but I’d like to see a gun rack in every pickup truck, like my boyfriend had when I was fifteen years old in Florida. An armed society is a polite society.”
She cracks a smile. “Now Jerry Brown’s governor again. He’s done some great things, like balancing the budget and libraries are open on Sundays. But things are getting to the point in this country where people are going to have to fight to survive and fight for their rights.”
I think Texas is almost “over,” but she’s got mostly the right idea.
I talk about how mad Jello Biafra would be if you told him the original version of “California Uber Alles” was the perfect theme song for Jonah Goldberg’s Liberal Fascism here.
