Should cowboy bush ride off into the sunset?

Should cowboy Bush ride into the sunset?
As a former combat infantryman in World War II, I've always believed we must fully support our troops. Reluctantly, I now believe the best way to support troops in Iraq is to bring them home, starting with the "hand-over" on June 30.
Only a carefully planned withdrawal can clean up the biggest military mess miscreated in the Oval Office and miscarried by the Pentagon in my 80-year lifetime. In Journalese, the traditional five Ws of Who, What, When, Where, Why:

Who? George W. Bush.

What? His cowboy culture. Ride fast and alone or with just a few buddies. Shoot first. Ask questions later.

3. This might have packed a little more punch
If it wasn't Al Neuharth saying it, you know what I mean? USA Today, one of the head cheerleaders for the War on Terror (sic), has much to answer for, and simply getting rid of Stupidhead isn't going to change a damn thing as long as the press remains as curious about what's going on behind the scenes as a professional wresting referee.

And, in case Mr. 80-year-old Neuharth has trouble remembering, let him take it from Mr. 45-year-old gratuitous: The reason LBJ went back to the sunset of his Texas ranch was mostly because he had a conscience and felt personally anguished by what was going on in Vietnam. You see anything resembling anguish, or doubt, or even awareness that there's a problem in Stupidhead's eyes?

You and the Fourth Estate have much to answer for, Mr. Neuharth.

5. I completely agree with you about Neuharth
which makes his column so surprising. It means there are a lot of pro-war people rethinking their position . . .


I vote, does you?

7. ding ding ding ding - we have a winner
perhaps he's not really criticizing George ... maybe he's in the next stage of pre-empting public opinion ... preparing us for the next stage ... softening the exit ... purposely leaving out any thought or discussion of being charged with crimes ... a World Court visit ... a cell ...


next we'll hear, as with Nixon: he suffered enough ... just let him go ...


Double U, you have much to answer for

and then sent to the chopping block.

12. If he were a real cowboy, I don't think he would have done
the movie cowboy shit he's done. When has he ever been near a horse or a cow? Riding into the sunset is too good for him, for the chaos and suffering he has caused, unless it's into a jail cell.
