John Wayne was a Nazi- Tribute to M.D.C.

He haunts your insomniac TV viewings like All in the Family reruns and ads for Japanese knife sets and phone sex. In the TV glare, he’s always there. That hitleering, swasticky cowboy in his 10-gallon hat, ever-ready to up the vigil/ante justice. You don’t want to drive him out of town by sundown, you want to push him into the Pacific Ocean so he can playact Manifest Destiny with the fishes. Listening to the whiskey in your head, you wonder, “If I shoot the TV screen, will I make him bleed?”
