Bush is a shoe dodger as well as a draft dodger


If I had known about this, I would have donate some shoes to the cause!

Also, Bush says that they were size 10. I guess he’s not as blind as I thought if he can distinguish the size of objects hurled at him. Also, were the men’s shoes or women’s shoes? Inquiring minds want to know.

Nu-cu-lar

A metathesis is defined by the Merriam-Webster Online Dictionary as

: a change of place or condition: as a: transposition of two phonemes in a word (as in the development of crud from curd or the pronunciation \\ˈpər-tē\\ for pretty) b: a chemical reaction in which different kinds of molecules exchange parts to form other kinds of molecules

Why am I writing about this bizarre topic? In 61 days, we will likely never hear George W. Bush’s famous example, his mispronounciation of the word “nuclear” as “nu-cu-lar” again.  If you feel sad that you can’t mock that pronounciation, Sarah Palin also does the same thing, and we may be hearing from her in the near future…

To be fair, William Safire noted that Presidents Eisenhower, Carter, and Clinton also mispronounced the word. But where’s the fun in that?

(Thanks to Allison of Just My Day Blog for giving me the idea for this post with a hilarious joke. )

George W. Bush’s missions accomplished

missionsacomplished
This is the cover of the current issue of “The American Conservative”.  It is also the most accurate magazine cover that I have ever seen. Obviously they left out  few things, but there wasn’t enough room on the cover.

Let’s see… liberals (obviously) hate him, true conservatives don’t like his deficit spending and his meddling with civil liberties.. how the heck did he get a 25% approval rating???

Election humor – 2000 presidential election

The Presidential election was too close to call. Neither George W. Bush nor Al Gore had enough votes to win. There was much talk about ballot recounting, hanging chads, butterfly ballots, court challenges, etc., but a week-long ice fishing competition seemed the sportsmanlike way to settle things. The candidate that caught the most fish at the end of the week would win the election. Therefore, it was decided that there should be an ice fishing contest between the two candidates to determine the winner.

After much of back and forth discussion, it was decided that the contest take place on a remote frozen lake in northern Minnesota.

There were to be no observers present, and both men were to be sent out separately on this isolated lake and return at 5 P.M. with their catch for counting and verification by a team of neutral parties. At the end of the first day, Gore returned to the starting line and he had ten fish.

Soon, Bush returned and had no fish. Well, everyone assumed he was just having another ‘bad hair’ day or something and hopefully, he would catch up the ext day.

At the end of the 2nd day Gore came in with 20 fish and Bush came in again with none. That evening, Dick Cheney got together secretly with Bush and said, “I think Gore is a low-life, cheatin’ son-of-a-Democrud. I want you to go out tomorrow and don’t even bother with fishing. Just spy on him and see just how he is cheating.”

The next night (after Gore returns with 50 fish), Cheney said to Bush, “Well, tell me, how the hell is Gore cheating?”

Bush replied, “Dick, you’re not going to believe this, but that son-of-a-gun is  cutting holes in the ice.”

Why does Bush keep telling us stuff we already know?

We’ve been bombarded with dire warnings about the economy for months now, and there is a $700 billion bailout package in front of Congress (which presidential candidate John McCain has deemed important enough to suspend his campaign when he was gaining losing momentum).

So what does President Bush do? He tells us stuff like that “our entire economy is in danger” and “We’re in the midst of a serious financial crisis.” Does he think the American people are as stupid as he is? Apparently he does, as way too many idiots voted for him in 2004 – as the saying goes, “Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me.” Oh well. At least he is somewhat in touch with reality, as opposed to the time in 2003 when he declared “Mission accomplished”  with regard to major Iraq combat operations.

CORRECTION 9/25: Changed “gaining” to “losing”.

My recollection of 9/11/01

I had just shown for work on the morning of 9/11/01 and saw lots of people crowded around a small television set. I asked what was going on, and was informed that  jets had crashed into both World Trade Center towers.  I watched the coverage for a while, then went to my cubicle in shock.  Needless to say, I did not get much work done that day, as I was following the events on the Internet.

I was really angry for quite a while, and I kept hoping that President Bush would find Al-Qaeda’s primary base and wipe it off the face of the earth. Of course, pinning them down is a task much easier said than done, so now I just want to see them weakened so that they cannot carry out major terrorist actions.

My main thought for the day (and on every anniversary) was “There but for the grace of God go I.” I was in NYC on 9/1/01 – 9/3/01 to attend the US Open tennis tournament. The hotel I stayed in was about 3 blocks from Ground Zero (and was damaged in the attack), so I am very thankful that I was not there on 9/11.

My prayers also go to the victims, families, and friends of this national tragedy.

This will get Bush to stop eavesdropping on the American people

As my friend Kelly points out, GWB has been systematically destroying the 4th Amendment (not to mention the rest of the Constitution.)

I just realized that I have a simple solution. I’ll start podcasting this blog and/or distributing MP3 files of each entry. If everyone plays one of the MP3 files every time they use the phone (say, the first three minutes of each conversation), the eavesdropper (assuming there is one) will die of boredom.

The obvious problem will be financing. I have previously commented on the research study that found that pregnant women who don’t eat well risk the long term health of their unborn children. I suggest that they take away money from these bozos and give it to my project.
