Let's Make a Movie About the Cult of Bush

Honestly, I've been trying to write something clever, but words cannot express my disgust and contempt for the murderous, racist, God-lovin' thugs that are running our government.

You know what? There are other places in the world where theocrats turn a blind eye to the suffering of their own people: Iran, Saudi Arabia, and Pakistan, to name just a few.

"...Bungling horse whisperers and campaign hacks.
Dead babies in the streets of America.
Jesus wept."

And yet, America still thinks Bush is a Great Leader. Cult of Bush, indeed. I don't think it's possible to break the bond between Bush and his Moonies, short of deprogramming them.

On a similar note, here's the the most astoundingly stupid post in the entire history of the Intarwebz:

"...Race has nothing to do with this � precisely nothing. The mobs of murdering Hutus and swarms of slaughtering Serbs are as different racially as it is possible to be, and they are cut from precisely the same cloth.

...Only a few minutes ago, I had the delightful opportunity to read the comment of a fellow who said he wished that white, middle-class, racist, conservative cocksuckers like myself could have been herded into the Superdome Concentration Camp to see how much we like it. Absent, of course, was the fundamental truth of what he plainly does not have the eyes or the imagination to see, namely, that if the Superdome had been filled with white, middle-class, racist, conservative cocksuckers like myself, it would not have been a refinery of horror, but rather a citadel of hope and order and restraint and compassion.

...My Tribe knows enough about how the world works to figure out ways to boil water, ration food, repair structures, build and maintain makeshift latrines, and care for the wounded and the dead with respect and compassion. "

OMG...my country has become a nation of blithering morons. Obviously, the point is that there was no food or water to ration, that agents of the law were bent on not letting people coordinate, that 90+% of the people affected most by Bush's incompetence are black.

Is it possible to share a society with people this colossally vapid? How long do I continue to subsidize their idiocy? Man, someone should make a movie about the Cult of Bush.

Actually, if anyone's interested, let me know and I'm more than happy to help kick it off.

I don't actually think that many people think he's great anymore. His approval rating is at the Presidential "Mendoza Line" at 40%... and falling.

You know I wish that was true. I think the relevant measure is the inverse - the disapproval - which is probably more likely to feed through to action...and that's lagging approval significantly (or at least was! :)

I honestly don't understand what objective you are working toward. Why are you so fixated on Bush? Somehow he is responsible for global warming? His supporters are somehow evil for supporting him? He is a murder? He is racist? You sound sort of crazy...
