    Athena said it right:

    No, We Are Not Our President

    I live in North Texas and for eight years I had to listen to all the suburban fundie claptrap against Bill Clinton. I had to see all the "He's Not My President" and "Impeach President Clinton-And Her Husband, Too" bumperstickers on the same vehicles (big trucks and SUVs in suburban and urban settings) that now have "W'04" and "Support the Troops" ribbons on them.

    Well, as I've been saying since 2000, you ignorant folks with those stickers can have YOUR President, because George W. Bush certainly isn't mine. He sure as hell wasn't my President in his first Supreme Court-annointed term and he's even further from being my President now. The fundies, the selfish Wall Streeters and the imagery suckers are all in this with their President.

    Everything they do (or they do not do) is theirs; they own it. Giving less to the crucial initial allotment of aid than will be spent on Bush's coronation is theirs. It's their bigotry, it's their selfishness, it's theirs. All theirs. And they better pray to the Holy Trinity at night that we never get hit again like 9/11, because if they think the rest of the world hates us now, wait until no one comes running to the front door to help us if such a sad day should come again.

    As to why it took Bush three days to get his thumb out of his butt and say something, just think about this: Seychelles, Tanzania, Kenya, Somalia, Sri Lanka, India, Bangladesh, Thailand, Malaysia, Indonesia: It took his handlers three days to teach him how to pronounce all these places and to teach him where they are! The poor, poor President had a lot to learn on his vacation...that's just not fair to a guy, is it?

      Don't worry. Bush probably had loads of fun doing imitations of Sri Lankans being swept away by flood waters. So it wasn't all hard work.
