The most egregiously passive-aggressive monster to ever occupy the White House -- I'd call him "the sack of shit that walks like a man," but ...

... he doesn't actually WALK like a man, but some weird pranced-out creature with its hoofed feet covered with the skin of dead cattle. He doesn't actually PROPOSE anything, does NOT create anything, just sits there, looking like a tired drunk telling us how CONGRESS needs to create something so he can either sign it or destroy it.

1. His cynical lying bullshit about how he wants the poorest, neediest children to be first (to received subsidized healthcare from SCHIPS)? And therefore, CONGRESS needs to create the bill HE wants...

BULLSHIT -- the late (and sorely missed) Molly Ivins pointed out that when he was governor of Texas, he LOWERED the allowable income to a lesser multiple of the poverty level than it had been in order to remove HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS of impoverished women and children from getting the federally-mandated medical insurance they needed. *

So am I harsh on this asshole? A man (allegedly) who, in order to present a politically-shiny balance sheet DIRECTLY contributed to the suffering and deaths of thousands of women and children? Could anyone EVER be too harsh on someone like that? I don't think so. We can only hope his schoolboy believe in a hell of eternal punishment is actually true in his case.


2. Looking ever more like a Sunday morning hangover in a suit, he sat in his chair and talked about how congress had to figure out a way to modify the FAA and prevent the false imprisonment of passengers on airplanes that sit on the ground for (seemingly) endless hours.

He's the President, right? Can't he actually SUGGEST something? I mean publicly, where someone can criticize it, rather than quietly whispered into the ears of his slaveys, those few in congress who still can't see past the glamour-spell to recognize the true form of this repugnant monster, or to smell the sulfur, as was pointed out good old Hugo Chavez, the funniest world leader around. (If anyone considers Rush Limbaugh to be even marginally funny -- and I know some very intelligent people who do -- then the same people MUST recognize Hugo Chavez as the sharpest pie-throwing heir to the mantle of Lenny Bruce, Richard Pryor, and Bill Hicks.)

Bush -- he's "The Decider," right?

Meaning: "I won't tell you what I want, Mommy, because I don't know what I'm supposed to want, but you tell me, and I'll decide whether or not to throw a tantrum about it as soon as the the people who tell me what I want tell me if I like it or not."

Classic "I'm the leader. I'm the leader. Where are we going?"


Is there any way to NOT despise this passive monster who rides on the shoulders of humans while being whipped by even more execrable creatures?


* There are 1.4 million children in Texas who have no health insurance. If eligibility were set at 200 percent of the federal poverty level, more than 500,000 of them would qualify to purchase low-cost insurance policies. Bush insisted, however, that the line be set at 150 percent, eliminating 200,000 children (The Nation, April 26, 1999)

** Lenny Bruce's apt description of an "adult" a lot like George W Bush: "When you're eight years old, nothing is any of your business."

*** Bill Hicks on TV news: “Today a young man on acid realized that all matter is merely energy condensed to a slow vibration, that we are all one consciousness experiencing itself subjectively, there is no such thing as death, life is only a dream, and we are the imagination of ourselves. Here’s Tom with the weather.”
