I am a lurker here at DKos and I love it.  Never written a diary, and honestly never planned too, unless it was something on Ghost Bikes in Chicago or some other thing of moderate and cycling interest.  

Then I saw this.  And, the laugh out loud quotient was way too high for me not to share with fellow Kossacks.

I say without exception (and yes I searched) that if some more talented soul has opined herein on this topic, then I will delete immediately (as long as I am still at the bar - otherwise, it'll be tomorrow).

Let's be the quick brown fox and jump over the lazy dog and see what we think.

And, I gotta say, it'd be a lot easier to write this if the bartender would stop serving me.

Apparently, King George the Not Yet Worst, wants us to continue reading his lips as he endorses his son - not the one we have had, the other one, for the top spot:

During an interview on "FOX News Sunday," the nation's 41st president said Jeb, the former governor of Florida, is "as qualified and as able as anyone I know in the political scene" to be president.

"I'd like to see him run," Bush said. "I'd like to see him be president some day."

But wait,  Wait,  It gets worse.

Apparently, the last eight years of raping the American economy at the behest of those who do not use "summer" as a verb, while prosecuting illegal wars costing no one but our youths (and untold - and never to be told - numbers of Iraqi's their) deaths and the systematic destruction of civil rights ("We don't need no fookin Constitution"), King George the Not Yet Worst wants more.

"As president, it's about service, service for the greatest country on the face of the Earth and the honor that goes with it," Bush said. "I think Jeb fits that description."

Well, I don't know about you, but I can certainly tell you that while I enjoy some Bush now and again, I have had enough in the last eight years to last a lifetime or three.

But, hey, we just can't end with a ringing endorsement of a now deposed (did I say deposed?!?) governor, we have to jump on the legacy train.  Speaking of his eldest, who only ran for President because he couldn't be Commissioner of Baseball (and why, for god's sake, the team you owned tanked), King George the Not Yet Worst said:

But the current President Bush's political days will soon be over, prompting the former President Bush to unburden himself about what he calls unfair criticism of his eldest son.

"It's been tough on his father and his mother," the ex-president said. We're not very good sports about sitting around and hearing him hammered, I think, unfairly.

"Now, there were some things that clearly he deserved criticism for," he said. "But I think the idea that everything that's a problem in this country should be put on his shoulders -- I don't think that's fair. And I'm not trying to get back in game by criticizing people, for example, the New York Times, but you know, it's just grossly unfair."

I, for one, am very sorry that Barb and George had to suffer the slings and arrows of their eldest sons's incompetence and dumbfucktitude.  

Though I feel little pity.

I will say (and my catholic mother and every nun who taught me is now standing next to me  - funny that they'd be at a bar, isn't it? - rulers at the ready, my knuckles will ache in the morning- so will my head: for different reasons) this - In this age, where no one is responsible for anything and blame is cast as a wide blanket covering everyones ass, is it not strange that we'd we would see (hear) such a total failure, so a facetious an attempt to make something other  than the total failure is was by both a former statesman and a parent?

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
