Bush League

july the fourth just passed .... and what better way to celebrate our freedoms than by taking advantage of special deals on suv's ..... or watching the grotesque posturing of our republican coterie, as vain and as pretentious and as supercilious as hydrocephalics grunting and gurgling in front of fun house mirrors .....

on a day like the fourth we'd expect garbage and hyperbole and offensive nonsense from our president ..... in fact, that's what we expect from him each and every day, and he's a man we can count on, because where being grotesque and tasteless and offensive and insulting are concerned, he has yet to disappoint ..... like, what better way to politicize mass murder than by giving it a number:

"I will make you this promise, I'm not going to allow the sacrifice of 2,527 troops who have died in Iraq to be in vain .........."

they must have had a teleprompter in front of him to insure accuracy in reporting .....ooops, there goes another one .... damn, there goes another ..... aw sheeee-it ...... hurry it up, george; they keep on gettin' killed ..... like it really matters to them, how many people die .....

maybe i'd pay attention if he followed that up with, so these deaths aren't in vain i'm going to commit suicide right now, just like ken lay did, because i'm guilty of being a mass murderer ..... or if he said, so these deaths won't be in vain, i'm going to resign the presidency right now and turn myself in to the war crimes tribunal in the hague for trial ...... then i might pay some attention to a man who has never told the truth, whose every word emerges as slowly and as painfully and as distastefully as an elephant turd from the cringing anus of a chihuahua, a man whose idea of "compassion" is to mock the distress of the woman whose death sentence he has refused to commute .....

because he never met a death sentence he didn't like, neither as governor nor as president ......

what does it take to make the loss of these young people not in vain? not counting, of course, the thirty-five thousand americans and how many hundreds of thousands of iraqis that have had their titties and nuts blown off, have shrapnel through their brains, and can't quite get it together to run along with georgie porgie on their "enhanced" limbs .... did you see this? could you believe this? george jogging with a double amputee? what a manly man our president is ..... and this from the man who was ragging on a blind journalist ...... what the fuck is it with these people? you scumbag fuckers ... what does it take to make you feel some fucking shame?

it makes you want to say, george, just go fuck yourself .... you're absolutely sick and disgusting, and so are the evil cocksuckers who created this insane photo op ... and so are the editors that choose to display this grand guignol shit ...... what ... it isn't enough to stuff brawnie paper towel rolls up your ass and stand on an aircraft carrier in san diego harbor and say, 0oooooooo emissions accomplished .... emission accomplished ..... i've come, i've come, mommie dadddddie i've come i've come i've come everybody come and look at me look what i've done now now i've come i've come i've come emissions accomplished! mommie! mommie! mommie? come look! i've made sploogie in my didies! come look mommie! big sploogie! oooooo! i like sploogie on dead people! mommmieeeeeeeee mommmmieeee bigggg splooooogieeeees!

simpleton fuckwad .....

i'd like to see some photo ops done in the psych wards ..... you know, the rubber rooms? if he can run with the legless then, by god, he ought to be playin' texas hold-em with the sightless ..... or, how about eating chinese food, with chopsticks, with people who lost their hands? or maybe he could read "my pet goat" to some of the poor folk locked away .......

and this sacrificing our troops .... is this the same as supporting them? is that how you do it? by being some kind of aztec priest and saying, "next" while you rip out their hearts and the blood pours down the steps, its coppery smell ripe and redolent in the morning sun?

excuse me, it's blood pukin' time!

one thing you can say for these evil republican fucks: they've got their nerve ..... why, where else but in america can people who avoided military service impugn the valor of those who served? where else but america can those in power fribble away our time and energy on dog and pony shows like flag burning and same-sex marriage? what, you don't think there are really important issues that demand our attention?

oh ..... moral issues ..... so much more compelling than real ones ......

it's disgusting and it's reprehensible and ..... it's kinda now, it's kinda charlie, you know?

there it is: yet another column without a snappy happy ending ...... but whatever it is, it must be working .....

the sun rose this morning ......

next: dr. pete doesn't know

Well, I can tell you that the numbers of war dead count for families destroyed and that the men and women have names. Today they buried Pfc Brian Bradbury, killed in Afganistan last week. He left behind several small children who will never ever get to play ball with their dad (whom I am told was a great guy by the way) He was from St. Joseph Missouri where I live. It is indeed terrible that he had to die, why I cannot for the life of me say. But what makes it worse is that the rights he as they always say died to protect was of a hateful bastard named Reverend Phelps from Topeka Kansas......his crew of horrid human filth came over from bleeding kansas to torment the family of the dead soldier. In the past this so called reverend has had children and church members hold posters proclaiming that 'God hates the USA' and crap like that. From what I understand this moron thinks that because their are homosexuals in the usa that the almighty is going to condone poor soldiers dying. I am sorry, but the only person allowing that to happen is sadly enough our highest elected politician. How many more sons and fathers and brothers are gonna have to pay the bill for politicians lil games? Ok, I will get off the soapbox now....sorry
