My "mad as hell" LTTE....
Edited on Sat Oct-28-06 09:27 AM by KzooDem
Think it will get published, or is it too over-the-top? Any ideas for suggestions/edits appreciated!

If the most recent lie vomited forth by George W. Bush -- that hes never been stay the course in regards to his Iraq policy -- wasnt enough for the thinking portion of America on which to gag, we were subsequently treated to the absurd claim by White House spokesman Tony Snow that we went back and looked today and could only find eight times where he ever used the phrase stay the course. In addition, were expected to believe the curious explanation that the president is no longer using the phrase because, wellstaying the course was never really about staying the course in the first place.

When I heard Snows preposterous assertions, I recognized it for what it was -- yet another premeditated Orwellian/Rovian black-is-white, war is peace wad of misinformation calculated by a morally corrupt presidency to bury the dreadful, over-cooked peas that is this administrations botched Iraq policy under a pile of mashed potatoes, hoping nobody would notice.

Apparently neither Snow, nor the veracity-challenged Bush administration, is very well schooled in using the search engine Google, or the search feature on their very own White House website. When I heard this White House sanctioned rot, thats exactly where I went. And what did I find?

In the course of a little more than an hour, I was able to discover on the White Houses own website archive of the presidents speeches that in fact, the president has used the term in official speeches and comments at least thirty times. Thats not counting the times hes likely used the phrase and the moribund ideology behind it in a myriad of interviews, nor the countless times various administration members have undoubtedly parroted their bosss drivel. Sort of like Jack Abramhoffs handful of visits to the White House, nest pas?

The misguided half of the American electorate who voted this amoral cabal of liars into power not once, but twice, need to join the rest of us who have been morally outraged over the administrations mismanagement of our country for six long, disastrous years, and demand impeachment. If you fail to do so, then the only truth that will matter is that those who pull Bushs strings will know that the American people are as clueless as the president himself.

2. Absolutely brilliant!
And not "over the top" at all. You nailed the Bush** regime's mendacity but good. No reason why it shouldn't be published, let us know if it does!

3. Love it, except
that it's "n'est-ce pas" (not "nest pas"). Be sure to let us know if it's printed and give a link if available.

Thank you!

5. Well done.
Unfortunately the "misguided" are too arrogant to admit they have been duped and will never think Smirkhole's crimes are worthy of impeachment. Sick, I know.
