Editor, Casa Grande Dispatch:

I’ve seen those disturbing homemade placards and so have you.

GET A BRIAN MORAN! Or sometimes simply GET A BRIAN!

These cryptic signs keep popping up at Stop the Steal! rallies everywhere.

But, like many of you, I’m in the dark here. What’s really going on? Is this something the rest of us should know about? Sometimes it’s hard to tell with these MAGA mobs. Are these coded messages being transmitted under our very noses? Or are these folks deeper into irony (unintentional or otherwise) than the rest of us? Or do they just have festering resentments against those cultural elite spellers?

Alas, these questions — and others — go unanswered.

My other questions are (1) Who is Brian Moran and why does everyone want to get one? (2) Is Brian the new messiah a la an old Monty Python sketch? (3) Is he the new conservative go to guru, the next John Galt? Or (4) Is he the new and improved Donald Trump many of his dysfunctional followers have been waiting for? (5) Is he Trump’s new pick for VP? Or (6) is he a combination from all the above?

Aye, there’s a disturbing thought.

I just don’t know who this mysterious yet ubiquitous Brian Moran could be or what’s his mission in life.

Oh, get a clue, you Moran! Or — as many an orthographic challenged MAGAster might put it — a Brian, you fool.

And, while you’re at it, use a spellcheck like the rest of us.

Bill Alewyn
