Powerful Anti-Scrubya Rant: The Emperor of Vulgarity by Mike Carlton
The Empire of Vulgarity by Mike Carlton

"George Bush's second inaugural extravaganza was every bit as repugnant as I had expected, a vulgar orgy of triumphalism probably unmatched since Napoleon crowned himself emperor of the French in Notre Dame in 1804.

The little Corsican corporal had a few decent victories to his escutcheon. Lodi, Marengo, that sort of thing. Not so this strutting Texan mountebank, with his chimpanzee smirk and his born-again banalities delivered in that constipated syntax that sounds the way cold cheeseburgers look, and his grinning plastic wife, and his scheming junta of neo-con spivs, shamans, flatterers and armchair warmongers, and his sinuous evasions and his brazen lies, and his sleight of hand theft from the American poor, and his rape of the environment, and his lethal conviction that the world must submit to his Pax Americana or be bombed into charcoal."

1. Damn, nothing like laying it all on the line
and not holding back the punches. I love this line;

"with his chimpanzee smirk and his born-again banalities delivered in that constipated syntax that sounds the way cold cheeseburgers look".

The way cold cheeseburgers look. How poetic.

I dont think Ill ever be able to look at bush again without seeing ketchup and melted cheese running down his face and a slab of tomato atop his head.

8. That was a great read -- and my own sentiments, exactly.
I've been just about as subtle with my own feelings about Junior these last couple of weeks, so I really enjoyed reading someone else's scorching words on B*sh's lack of....well,...everything. Gives me a warm glow inside. ;)

9. We should all be so declarative and to the point
The pre-election niceties went nowhere. In politics, politeness seems to take a back seat to victory.
