Equal Time with Bob Boudelang
"Who Can Trust a Thieving, Lying Drunk?"
November 13, 2004
Bob Boudelang, Angry American Patriot Esther Brown-Rosenfeld
I don't know where the hell he is. Off on some bender probably.
He's behind in his rent again, and the last thing I need is to waste
time sitting here writing his damn column for him. But they called
and said "We need his column" so here I am filling in.
I suspect he's been a lazy crooked drunk all his life. I know
he'll steal just about anything that isn't nailed down, and you
can't trust him as far as you can throw him. When you think of it,
Bob's not so far from that idiot Bush he's always carrying on about.
Just as well the schmuck is off somewhere. I don't think I could
stand to hear that idiot gloating about the crappy election results.
From the way they carry on on TV you'd think the country unanimously
shouted "We want George" on Tuesday night.
Listen, give me a frigging break. The goddamn thug spent the entire
campaign slandering a good and decent man. He lied on every subject
big and small (what kind of useless twit doesn't know he owns a
lumber mill I ask you?). He and his gang of thugs tore up Democratic
voter registrations, moved polling places around, intimidated voters,
and did everything that they could to screw up the election.
You got the head of the voting machine company writing letters
to people saying "I'll do everything I can" to get this nitwit back
in the office he don't deserve. You even got the guys who came from
the UN to supervise saying in the International
Herald Tribune that this election was more screwed up than the
ones in Serbia or the Congo.
And now they want to say he's got a mandate. Listen, honey, he's
got a mandate the way Iraq is a mission accomplished. If he's a
winner, then I'm happy to be with the losers - the smell is better
and I can sleep nights.
He's got a mandate? Let's see him walk down a city street in this
country and answer questions from the folks he meets - assuming
they don't spit on him and throw rocks. Let's see him get in front
of ordinary people that didn't sign loyalty oaths - we'll find out
quick what kind of mandate he has.
Let's see him go to some funerals for the kids who are getting
killed in Iraq over nothing at all except that he had to be such
a hotsy-totsy war president. Let him look those people in the eye
and show the rest of us his mandate.
And now he's going to privatize Social Security? My shiny heinie
he's going to privatize Social Security!
Let's not forget that this pisher tried it before. Starting back
when he was running against Al Gore, who would have been a better
president on his worst day than this guy was on his best. Georgie
said Al Gore wanted to make Social Security a federal program. (Oh
yes, he did too.) He actually told some of these idiots that they
would be better off with their money in Enron than in Social Security.
So after the election, he names this big deal commission headed
by Daniel Moynihan (oy!) and some gink named Parsons who ran AOL
into the ground while he made millions. Parsons already has got
fined by the Department of Labor for cheating his workers out of
benefits, mind you. Some of the other folks on that commission were
going to make millions out of privatization. A swell lot of thieves
So the committee swears up and down they're not going to raise
the retirement age or cut benefits. They meet illegally in secret
(what else is new?) and when they put out a report with three different
schemes to steal the trust fund. And every scheme involves raising
the retirement age and cutting benefits.
So I hope nobody is too depressed that Junior Birdman won on Tuesday.
Believe me, I've seen worse. That evil son of a bitch Nixon was
worse. A big big victory he had, and the same terrible people shouted
and cheered "Four More Years." But his crookedness fell apart quick
too. It's what they call karma, and it runs over dogma every time.
(That joke always cracks me up.)
The victory or the loss is not the important thing anyway. In
the end, it is who you are and what you stand for. I would rather
stand with decent people.
Yes, America has its share of vicious crazies. You cannot live
in a trailer park near Bob Boudelang and not know that. But most
Americans are decent good people. They can be fooled. They can be
scared. They can be cheated. But never for long. And at the bottom
they are mostly not mean-spirited or selfish. A crook can hide behind
the Bible or the flag, but in the end his crookedness will come
out, and people will see for themselves.
As for me, I am going to keep working with my local peace group
and keep agitating, if for no other reason than it annoys people
like Bob Boudelang, who if his trailer had all its wheels would
be gone from Daisyview yesterday. So there!
Bob Boudelang will turn up sooner or later, and he'll lie about
where he's been too, as usual. You could write to him at firstname.lastname@example.org
but if it's money he owes you, oh, do I feel sorry for you.
