I don’t get this. Good Ol’ Dub is truly turning out to be the stupidest and worst president of the U.S. beyond even what I could imagine. Just when you think a politician could not sink any lower, he has found levels in a swamp bog that not even a mummified caveman could reach.
He commuted Libby’s sentence?!?!?!
And is my use of multiple punctuation marks a reflection of surprise or disgust? He claims he was under great pressure to pardon Libby. Who the hell pressures the leader of the free world to commute a scumbag’s sentence????
That time it was surprise.
This is just one more instance of the severe disruption and corruption of the so-called democratic ideal of this country. I mean just when you think Bush can’t screw the country or its image up anymore he manages to outdo himself.
I feel bad for whoever ends up taking the office after this eight-year farrago. They have a slew of political vomit to clean out of the carpets.
On an unrelated noted, I finally got off my ass and started watching Tony’s Nip/Tuck seasons.
It is what one does when they sequester themselves in their bedroom for an undetermined amount of time.
I have always been curious about the show and have burned through the first two seasons in four days. What a deranged and demented series…I love it. It is completely ridiculous and I find myself astonished after each episode wondering why I am still watching the next one at 3 in the morning….but the damned thing is good. It is twisted in all those socially reflective ways but also ridiculous in all those “this can’t possibly be how people act” ways.
And then you read about Libby being commuted and you realize nothing on a show like Nip/Tuck could top the depravity of the Bush administration.
As Sara would say, it is as this point that HomeSec (sorry, I know you hate the term) would mark me as a national threat and tag me for migratory purposes. As she added, his worked really good for his puppies!
