I vividly remember the final skit by the SNL crew just before the fake election in 2000 (must differentiate between fake elections!). One showed Nader winning..when pigs fly. The middle skit showed Gore boring the main stream prostitute press with long economic lessons. Then they showed Bush crawling out from under a desk, everything trashed, the world outside the window in flames. Hahaha. Everyone laughed.
Especially the Gods and Goddesses and Spaghetti Monsters. Whoever looks over us and decides our Fates. Cruel, so cruel.
Here is today's news: From Yahoo:
The president ducked questions about Brown's resignation. "Maybe you know something I don't know. I've been working," the president said to reporters on an inspection tour of damage in Gulfport, Miss. Bush said he planned to talk with Brown's boss, Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff, from Air Force One on the flight back to Washington.Clueless about FEMA to the bitter end, isn't he? And touring smoldering, water damaged ruins filled with corpses? Either he has a talent for this or he worshipped the Devil that is Death one time too many in the Tomb at Yale. Funny, that. Prayer works, doesn't it?
"There will be plenty of time to figure out what went right and what went wrong," Bush said.
Here is the GOP complaining about money for New Orleans Welfare Queens living it up in sports domes: From Yahoo;
As the government rushes to respond with billions of dollars for Hurricane Katrina's victims, there are beginning to be a few voices of caution.Everyone but everyone knows this will cost over $150 billion to fix...which is cheaper than what we spent on Iraq by far....and the GOP is whining about the cost? Huh? Oh, I forgot. The Welfare Queens! Can't have them get those $2000 per person cards! Jealosy arises in the breast of many.
"We are in this sort of knee-jerk reaction mode," said Tom Tancredo, one of 11 House members, all Republicans, who voted against the latest emergency spending bill.
Lawmakers are being stampeded by their emotional reactions to Katrina's victims, as well as "the political dynamic that says if we don't show that compassion, people will think the Republicans in power are not compassionate," he said in an interview. "There is a lot of pressure to overreact."
I saw some pictures (and lost them!) of over 2000 angry people storming the legislature in Louisiana. They wanted information. They wanted to know about aid. Some were there about elderly parents and grandparents who probably died in the nursing homes and hospitals all over New Orleans. Seems this number is huge, the dead. Today, they found many bodies in the first floor of one hospital.
In China, the people have this concept of "Mandate from Heaven". Bush himself, babbled happily about how he had a "mandate" after the last very close election ruined by Diebold machines which most likely cheated us yet again. Anyway, he acted like he was god and strutted about, his boney breast bone jutting out. He spent it all, like a drunken sailor who went AWOL and now here we are, not even a year later, all of it spent and worse.
The gods hate him. And us. They seem bent on destroying us now. Normally, a people rid themselves of their leaders when all those plagues descend upon us. Comets and eclipses, infestation of frogs and rivers turning red. Time to ditch whoever is leading, no?
A famous line from China is, "What does a great leader need the most?"
"Luck", is the terse answer.
