The Sick Chickens & The Great Bottle Hunt
Sometimes things are too crass to ignore, like a dead cat in your well. I have noticed that whenever the Bush people find themselves in a mess, they screech about “terrorism” and invoke National Security as if were a laxative. Bush is now slipping badly in the real polls; his ramrod, DeLay, has been nutted and Fat Karl the Eunuch is next on the line. If both go, Bush will be like a hand puppet without the hand and as a consequence, the White House has dragged out the terrorism attack props again. Only this time, very few people with the exception of Wolf Blitzer and Mayor Bloomberg of New York City are going along with the faked “subway bombings” that Bush was bleating about.
Just before he hit on that shopworn and phoney ploy, Bush was going on about the terrible dangers facing us from Avian Flu. Yes, there is avian flu in Asia and yes, it is remotely possible it might just jump into the human population and cause havoc. Those who are interested in reading facts and not the pap cooked up in Rove’s office might want to check these links out:
Yes, our very own Wartime President, George Bush, is going to protect us from subway bombers and sick chickens. Geoge Bush and the entire DHS couldn’t protect America from anything more dangerous than a Juarez cockroach and stories about “thwarted terrorist attacks” are as fake as Bush and the WMD stories.
Now to the humor. Reports from friends on the scene are funnier than the Keystone Cops films of a bygone era. Bush, frustrated and sensing total disgrace and humiliation, has taken up binge drinking again. It isn’t a political disaster when he does it down at his Texas ranch…in the bomb bunker…but the staff is afraid he might suddenly tie one on before the public press was admitted for another “terrorist attack” speech. To prevent this disaster, certain selected staffers, to include several Secret Service men, are detailed to check out the Oval Office and the private quarters, searching for hidden bottles of Jim Beam. Behind books, taped underneath desk drawers, inside vases or stuffed down behind the cushions of office chairs or couches are the first places to look. One pint, half empty, was found inside the Presidential toilet tank and another stuck up inside a fireplace flue. Now this does not mean that hundreds of bottles were located in a one day period but these discoveries have covered a three month period. The First Wife has been active in searching the Imperial bedrooms and various closets with shoe boxes, coat pockets and the like being her first goal.
If, as is expected, Rove gets nailed, he will have to leave the White House and if he does, Bush might as well have what passes for his brain removed. Without DeLay to control the House and Frist in the Senate under investigation for insider trading, the removal of Rove would put a big paid to his powerhouse.
We can all thank God that the United States is not facing a well-armed Soviet Russia or we would all be in serious trouble. And Bush is about to pass as a poster boy for AA.
