Quote of the day: Chimpy the Prez proves there's no God, at least not one with a lick of sense. How else could he keep on spewing such lying drivel?

"However they put it, the Democrat approach in Iraq comes down to this: The terrorists win and America loses."
--you-know-who, to (according to the Washington Post) "a raucous crowd of about 5,000 GOP partisans packed in an arena at Georgia Southern University"

Six years into the nightmare that is the Bush administration, I find it useful to continue pointing out periodically something that Howie pointed out about our Chimpy before he took the oath of office: that he is the unluckiest person on earth. If this seems counter-intuitive to you, it did to me at first as well, since plainly everything he has can be attributed only to luck. (He certainly hasn't achieved anything through either talent or hard work.) But when you look closer, you see that everything he has ever done has failed, usually colossally. True, he has never (that I know of) paid the price for his screw-ups. In fact, he has more often than not been richly rewarded for them.

But the fact remains that his whole life, virtually everything the man has touched has turned to doody. And as Howie pointed out way back when, this is a helluva track record for a person who is about to become president of the United States--opening up the possibility (likelihood?) that his continuing streak of disasters becomes our streak of disasters.

Which I think pretty well sums up the history of this sorry-ass administration. Looked at this way, the unbroken record of catastrophe is just more of the same. Looked at this way, for example, it should have been easy to answer the question of whether we wanted a man whose very existence is a monument to failure to lead us into war.

So when our Chimpy talks about losing, he knows whereof he speaks, from a lifetime of it. The final irony is that he doesn't know that he is the world's foremost expert on failure. It is his--and the country's--misfortune that he has been surrounded by people with a financial interest in making believe that his failures, each grander and more humiliating than the one before, have been successes, even triumphs. If the results for the country hadn't been so devastating, it might almost be amusing.

I agree with everything you said but for some reason I can't get the picture shown on the post out of my mind. Is it just me or does that man look like he is about to cry because he is so close to the glorious leader?

We know why the baby cries.

That's the next question, Scott, and a biggie: Why and how is it that so many people endow this pathetic schlub with savior-like qualities that he clearly doesn't possess? Oh, I kick theories around from time to time, but nothing that really explains it. (Of course it certainly includes the fact that people can be appallingly poor judges of character.)

Whatever it is, the eye-opening incident is the storied first meeting of Karl Rove and Chimpy, when as a glorified gopher in the Bush 41 White House our Karl was sent to pick the lad up--I think following his triumphant emergence from Harvard Business School (where he presumably laid the groundwork for all those immortal business triumphs to follow). Karl is supposed to have taken one look at young George and seen stars, immediately recognizing him as The One. Very creepy.

czygne"However they put it, the Democrat approach in Iraq comes down to this: The terrorists win and America loses."

That's essentially what came to my house today from the gop mail propaganda lying ass machine. So I called the head of the republican party in my state, left a message and told him that we liberals support American troops and if he and his lying ass republican pimps would like to come to my house and tell me face to face that I don't support the troops, I'd be happy to see them. lol
If any others would like to challenge the head of the gop in my state, his number is 502.875.5130
Daryl Brock chairman. Don't expect him to answer however. He's a puppet for karl rove.
