The Truth Is Not an Option, of Course

On October 18th, John McCain was asked what he would do if the Dems gained control of the House and Senate. “I think I’d just commit suicide,” he said, adding, “I don’t want to face that eventuality because I don’t think it’s going to happen.” All the reports of that stupid remark begin or end by noting that McCain answered “with dark humor”, or that he smiled when saying it. That’s okay, Mr. McCain, don’t sweat it. We don’t expect you to mean what you say any more than we expect George W. Bush to mean what he says. On November 1, the Prez told Rush Limbaugh that he wanted Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld and Vice President Dick Cheney to remain in his administration until the end of his presidency. "Both those men are doing fantastic jobs and I strongly support them,” Bush said. Of course Bush canned Rumsfeld on November 8 and reports now are surfacing that he’d been planning to get rid of Rummy since last summer. It’s still a mystery why Bush even mentioned that he wanted Dick Cheney to remain. The Prez couldn’t dislodge Cheney from his administration with the Jaws of Life. But, insane and delusional as George W. Bush is, I would bet he actually thinks he can fire Cheney, and his remark was a heads-up warning. On November 8th Bush said, ”By putting this election and partisanship behind us, we can launch a new era of cooperation and make these next two years productive ones for the American people.” George Bush will expect bipartisanship from the new Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, while he will remain as partisan as before. But the fun part is going to be watching Bush behave exactly the way he has behaved for the last six years, believing that he can do whatever he wants to do, and that because he's the president, nothing has changed. When, in fact, the midterm elections on November 7th changed everything and night has now become day. We would like to remind the Little Pretender President that when he was fraudulently installed as the 43rd president of the United States, he dissed his father, the 41st president of the United States George Herbert Walker Bush. And now that Mr. God-Wants-Me-To-Be-President has become Mr. Limp-Dick-George, wiser heads have decided to call in GHWB’s buddies to pull GWB’s chestnuts out of the fire. And then, we would like to mention that the fast-talking and haughty Ken Mehlman decided to quit his job as Chairman of the Republican National Committee the day after Bill Maher said “Mehlman is gay” on the Larry King show. And the reason we mention this, is that George W. Bush may have to face up to half of his staff leaving town rather than coming under the spotlight of the new game in town: How AC-DC is DC? Oh, and by no means a non sequitur, has Karl Rove slithered out of town yet? Just asking. And finally, isn’t it a hoot that CNN sent a cease and desist letter to YouTube for their video of the juicy piece in the Larry King show? And now CNN has completely rewritten the transcript, and has excised the truth telling part. ROTFLMFAO!!!!!

George W. Bush may yet kill us all, but now at least we may die as US citizens.

Concerning McCain, I'm quite distressed about his flip-flopping on the suicide issue.
