Irony is dead. bush shakes prosthetic hand of Iraqi man
Edited on Tue May-25-04 10:38 AM by mopaul
surrealism is dead. sarcasm is dead.

here is bush, whose father created saddam and osama like dr. frankenstein, supported and financed them, like grandpa prescott supported hitler. here is bush, who is making billions from the profits of war and misery of untold thousands of innocents, shaking the new fake hand that was provided and paid for by good ol' uncle sam. here is bush, who ordered the slaughter and crippling of so many children, women and men, shaking a grateful iraqi man's phony hand.

here is bush, who is responsible for thousands of american g.i.'s crippling injuries suffered under his command, responsible for untold lost limbs, eyes, faces, shaking an iraqi man's robot hand, with his own vampire's hand.

here is bush, in another photo op, tossing us another symbol for our education, to remind us that we are liberators, not conquerers. here is bush, ignoring the horror, and accentuating the positive aspects of war, the good nature of america, the charitable side of the nazis. see? we are paying for the man's new hands! aren't we wonderful people, we americans?

2. It's all so blatantly political
a bunch of words that will not be acted upon and that shills like oh,say,To m Delay will be able to espouse on shows like Hannity and colmes and Hardball.

3. I saw that, and the Iraqi man's expression was telling.
When Stupidhead wouldn't let go of his fake hand, the man had a perplexed look on his face, like he was wondering what the hell this idiot with the scraped up face was going to do, pull it off?

15. He was probably afraid the bastard would rip it off and beat him
to death with his own arm.

11. Pix:
The man revels in the gruesome. He just loves to talk about killing and rape rooms and amputation.

12. what an idiot!
wouldn't it be more appropiate to switch up and shake his left hand? it seems awfully insulting to shake a prothestic hand.

seen the movie Kingpin?

13. yes, of course
It is the physical contact that is important - shaking right hands is the most common way, doesn't mean it has to be that way. You adapt if needed.
