October 31, 2006, Buzz Fugazi
Never was stay the course. Never was. See us start a war over Weapons of Mass Destruction?
What happens next in the Axis of Evil? North Korea blows a nuke. Some tool cranks out a story about what a punk ass nuke it was. North Korea blows another nuke... heh-heh. Iran calls us the Great Satan, then becomes a mutant bastard offspring of the Western Enlightenment... the President of Iran, Iamabigjagoff, mutters something about Iran having "the right" to nuclear power. My answer: Find that for me in the Koran, you asshole, and then you can have them. Maybe the US will pay Israel to drop some off for you. Stranger things have happened. Organized crime is as organized crime does. Is there another choice besides Gangsters or Clerics? Maybe: Dreamers With Social Conscience. Hmmmmmm.... you can find them anywhere among any ethnic group. What does it mean? What does it mean?
Mikey thinks meeting the President with a gathering of his True Believers is more intimate than ever. Aside from the people who drank the Guyana Punch at the New Church of Almighty Delusions, the hardcore rational support always did come from a rather exclusive group.
There's also the matter of those Iraqi people who believed a man subverting Democracy in the United States knew how to establish it in Iraq...
I can only imagine how disappointed they are. Disappointed and afraid. Who does that leave behind?
Certainly the big money interests would rather be hiding behind Barrack Obama and a New Spirit of Optimism than be tied to this DUI to Armageddon we call the Bush Administration.
Any insurance or pharmeceutical bigwigs getting their pictures taken with the President lately? Really? Let's see it. I want names... heh-heh, only kidding fellas... I am just a song and dance man, really.
My guess is that those guys will plead "Businessman"... they don't do politics, don't you know. Besides, they are smart and they probably already sent a bunch of "we're on your side, too" checks to the Democrats. Lobbyists gotta eat, too. A lot of 'em are great and amusing people. Did you see the movie THANK YOU FOR SMOKING? What was the name of that lobbyist character, the tobaco industry guy... MACK the KNIFE, or something. We oughta elect that actor guy who plays him President. Or George Clooney. Or better yet, President Oprah. No joke. I'll vote for Oprah. And Christopher Walken.
As for the tens and hundreds of millions spent by the now ex-friends of the GOP, that money they get from you, that money spent to pay the administrative cost of taking human cattle to market (Be honest. Do you really deserve any better?)... that's not politics.
And your healthcare cost, the price you pay at the pump. Those aren't taxes.
And we never were stay the course. We're inventing new tactics everyday for taking over and relinquishing the same pieces of turf. The implication is that we have good policy (though the President was very careful not to say that). The counter-spin is that the opposition is a bunch of assholes (though the President was very careful not to say that), and I will concede that point even though it is only being made in a wussy chickenshit manner through proxy. And even if it is true that somehow, someway, John Kerry is truly a bigger asshole than the President (there are strong arguments for either side of this debate)... does this argument mean that Iran will not someday have the capacity to nuke us (just because mobs sponsored by the Iranian Government still have not bored themselves to death chanting "Death to America!" is no reason to assume the worst... they are, as we are fond of saying about Israel, one of the few democracies in the region). Anyone feel that establishing a Shiite theocracy in Iraq was worth paying for or dying for? Everyone OK with Iran and North Korea having nukes? No one asked you one way or the other, did they?
Happy Halloween. Vote early.
