The Bush Effect

Pardon me for cropping the head off an ass.

“At this moment, somewhere in the world terrorists are planning attacks on our country,’’ President Bush said in a brief, televised statement from the Oval Office this morning. “Their goal is to bring destruction to our shores that will make Sept. 11 pale by comparison.

Last night when I saw a video clip of Bush warning us that the terrorists were ready to unleash more terror on our shores that would make 9/11 pale in comparison unless he gets what he wants (telecom immunity and wiretapping abilities), I can't even tell you in this space what I said to txrad. It wasn't any kind of threat in any way whatsoever. In fact, it was a short question, very bluntly put forth during a spontaneous fit of outrage.

Sometimes Bush makes me so angry I instinctively have a verbal fuse-blowing event. There was no way in hell I could put those feelings into words. Thankfully, I don't have to. Melissa already did it fucking brilliantly. She ripped him a new asshole which is a far kinder thing than my speculative question last night.
