It’s New Year’s Eve, What’s New?

The Justice Department has started a criminal investigation into the National Security Agency’s illegal wiretaps. Trent Duffy, a Crawford, TX flunky said, "The fact is that Al Qaeda's playbook is not printed on Page 1, and when America's is, it has serious ramifications. You don't need to be Sun Tzu to understand that." Cute. Duffy was talking about the Prez being pissed at the New York Times for disclosing the NSA illegal wiretaps on December 16th. Sun Tzu, the Chinese warrior who wrote “The Art of War”, famously said, “Keep your friends close, and your enemies closer." This piece of advice George W. Bush has assiduously ignored. Bush only keeps nannies Karen Hughes and Condoleezza Rice close. And even they are not in evidence as the President of the United States goes about the most important thing on his agenda on New Year’s Eve of 2005: Clearing brush down in Texas. So that’s it, folks. The last day of 2005 and George W. Bush is obsessively whacking away at underbrush to show he’s a real man at age 59. And why not? George W. Bush has nothing to worry about. Even though he will go down in history as the worst President the US has ever had, even though his war in Iraq is the most ill-advised war the US has ever waged, even though the Bush administration has increased our national debt to $8,100,000,000,000 and the US is on the brink of financial ruin, even though 1.00 is worth only .84 euros, even though aid for the poor and old is being cut while the rich get tax benefits and richer, even though the entire world despises the US due to the Bush administration, even though the Bush administration has lied, deceived, broken laws and the whole caboodle may be impeached, the president has only one all-encompassing motivation on this, the last day of 2005. The President of the United States is cutting down underbrush on his ranchlet in Texas to prove he can still cut the mustard, which he can’t. Nero fiddled. Bush whacks.
