It's Just Another Day in This Freedom-Loving Land
God's Self-Appointed Personal Emissary on Earth has gone bonkers - again. George Oilwellian is having his 16 millionth meltdown du jour. The Turd Blossom is still on the loose. And Insanely Cheney is still ticking like the mean old bastard that he is. It's just another day in this land of freedom and liberty that we all love so much.
We must admit that even if we are omnipotent, we have increasing trouble picking a topic to blog about. The news from these schlumps is either so completely beyond the pale or wickedly funny on its own that you can't really add anything useful. The acts of crazy people always speak for themselves. We're amazed at how Jay, Dave, and Conan can do it. Still, we read a story today that did get us thinking.
What with all his vacationing, Traveling George must suck up more petroleum than even the worst Hummer-driving knothead. If all he wanted to do was hide from Cindy Sheehan - something he does abundantly well with anyone who criticizes him - he could have stayed at the White House and saved us all a passle of money. He should have just sent the Twins out to the front gate to give Cindy a big Texas Pecan Pie for her trouble. We're sure that would have made her feel so, so much better.
To be fair though, we wouldn't have really expected him to actually conserve. Heck, Uncle Dick the Puppet Master once said of conservation, "Conservation may be a sign of personal virtue but it is not a sufficient basis for a sound, comprehensive energy policy." Using the logic this administration usually reserves for important matters, we guess that means we shouldn't even try.
How much did it cost for you and me to send El Shrubo off to Crawford for five weeks? We can't tell because - big surprise here - that information is confidential. What we do know is that those numerous vacations are important to the efficient functioning of a crackerjack Executive Branch. As Il Douche said during his recent auxiliary vacation in Idaho, "It's important for me to go on with my life, to keep a balanced life. I think the people want the president to be in a position to make good, crisp decisions and to stay healthy and part of my being (healthy) is to be outside exercising. So I'm mindful of what goes on around me. On the other hand, I'm also mindful that I've got a life to live and will do so.''
