Bush's Message To America
So what are we going to do about it?
Clearly, he has nothing left to lose--he can't be elected again, and even if he could, he'd engineer another stale hijack of the electoral vote, just like in 2000 and 2004 (clearly, he was raised on reruns). What can be done about his apathy?
Not much, apparently. Anyone who watches closely will notice that Bushie is a figure-head, window dressing for the interests of the far right, who, now that he's securely in office and has given them the necessary tax breaks, are running rampant like mice in an abandoned Taco Bell. Our only hope, really, is that these shit-stains eventually become arrogant enough to hang themselves. The Fall of Rome and all that, don'tcha know...?
I'm encouraged by the Democrats' and even Republicans' determination to investigate the firings of the federal prosecutors. I've heard some columnists talk about what a big deal it isn't, since there are thousands of federal prosecutors, and only less than 100 were dismissed. I don't care. It's bullshit to accept that the firings were not politically motivated, especially since they arose from then-White House Counsel Harriet Miers's suggestion that "new blood" was needed. If so, why not a bigger house cleaning? Seems like they only targeted the folks whose politics were a problem for Bush. Of course, we've heard the "pleasure of the President" argument from Tony Snow a little more often lately--you know, the one that says these prosecutors "serve at the pleasure of the President." And that, I suppose, is the verbal equivalent of the picture shown above.
Which brings up the earlier question: what are we going to do about it? Who do we complain to when nobody listens?
As my friends would say, "Who do you have to blow to get a drink around here?"
