You Just Might Be an Asshole
Edited on Wed Nov-30-05 05:46 PM by David Zephyr
If you are terrified of horses and afraid to be near them, and yet like to dress up in cowboy costumes as an adult and ride bicycles rather than horses on a former pig farm that you call a "ranch", you just might be an asshole.

If you were a cocaine-snorting, shiftless and worthless drunk until you were forty years old, and yet then begin to pontificate sanctimoniously to the entire nation about "decency and honor" and "moral character", you might just be an asshole.

If you dodged the military draft and avoided a foreign war because you were the privileged son of a Congressman, and yet like to dress up in military costumes as an adult and send hundreds of thousands of poor kids to a war that you alone started, you might just be an asshole.

If you and your brothers went from one failed and questionable business venture to another and were bailed out time and again by taxpayers and family friends, and yet have the gall to lecture a nation on economics and budgeting, you might just be an asshole.

If you and your family helped arrange for your girlfriend to have an abortion because you didnt have the sense to use a condom when you were young, and then later wag your finger at women about the sanctity of life of an embryo, you might just be an asshole.

If you have the audacity to criticize our Armed Forces for helping restore order and civility to a region torn by thousands of years of ethnic strife and ridicule its success with a snarl calling it nation building, and yet, then later embark on a ill-advised and failed $300 Billion attempt of it yourself, you might just be an asshole.

Reminds me of what I read about when Green Day has been touring and Billie Joe Armstrong comes out on the stage and says.."My name is george w bush, but my friends call me Asshole!"

74. Yup...this from the Chimperor's own mouth, I swear!
From The little Boy who wanted to be Emperor"s speech
at National Endowment for Humanity

Bush said Islamic radicalism is "elitist" and led by a "self-appointed vanguard" that presumes to speak for the masses. He chided bin Laden for telling Muslims "what is good for them." Then courageous George said, "And what this man who grew up in wealth and privilege considers good for poor Muslims is that they become killers and suicide bombers. He assures them that his is the road to paradise though he never offers to go along for the ride." Bush paused, got the scripted applause, and then did his silly smirk, so pleased with himself.

139. His whole terrorism speech
sounds like a confession. I wrote a post about it I'll go find.

OK here are the quotes

How can he say these lines with a straight face? Who do you think people around the world would think of when he says these lines? It's chilling, like he looks in the mirror and reports on the bad guy he sees there.


Some might be tempted to dismiss these goals as fanatical or extreme. Well, they are fanatical and extreme -- and they should not be dismissed ...Evil men, obsessed with ambition and unburdened by conscience, must be taken very seriously -- and we must stop them before their crimes can multiply.

The radicals exploit local conflicts to build a culture of victimization, in which someone else is always to blame and violence is always the solution. They exploit resentful and disillusioned young men and women, recruiting them through radical mosques as the pawns of terror. And they exploit modern technology to multiply their destructive power.

Over the years these extremists have used a litany of excuses for violence -- We're facing a radical ideology with inalterable objectives: to enslave whole nations and intimidate the world.

And what this man who grew up in wealth and privilege considers good for poor Muslims is that they become killers and suicide bombers. He assures them that his -- that this is the road to paradise -- though he never offers to go along for the ride.

Like the ideology of communism, our new enemy teaches that innocent individuals can be sacrificed to serve a political vision. And this explains their cold-blooded contempt for human life.

Its leaders pretend to be an aggrieved party... In truth they have endless ambitions of imperial domination, and they wish to make everyone powerless except themselves. ..They seek to end dissent in every form, and to control every aspect of life, and to rule the soul, itself. While promising a future of justice and holiness, the terrorists are preparing for a future of oppression and misery.

By fearing freedom -- by distrusting human creativity, and punishing change, and limiting the contributions of half the population -- this ideology undermines the very qualities that make human progress possible, and human societies successful. The only thing modern about the militants' vision is the weapons they want to use against us.

They're unconstrained by any notion of our common humanity, or by the rules of warfare.

Throughout history, tyrants and would-be tyrants have always claimed that murder is justified to serve their grand vision -- and they end up alienating decent people across the globe

mcscajun, your reply has inspired me to k & r this entire post, as you have so perfectly plucked a thought, that never completely formed in my mind, out of it.

77. Great!!! If you asked a mother whose son had just been killed in Iraq
"How do you know he would've had a great life?" after she had just tearfully told you what a good person her dead son was, and then you later coaxed tears out of your reptilian eyes while ostensibly reading a posthumously revealed letter of another dead soldier, you might just be an asshole.

119. Jimmy Breslin sommation, :
Bush's style is to be nowhere if things that carry a bit of fear
happen. During Vietnam, he kept all dental appointments. For the World
Trade Center attack, he first froze in a classroom in Florida. Then he
flew off in his plane for long hours. Three days later, he got to New
York where a flunky placed a retired firefighter, Bob Beckwith from
Long Island, alongside him atop a truck. Then Bush called out a
football dressing room speech over a bullhorn.

122. If you commit to film the most offensive, gross gaffe you made
Kristen Breitweiser comments on W's propaganda Showtime movie - a real story was used here:

And since we are talking about the visit to Ground Zero, I found it
particularly offensive that there was so much posturing about how to get
the best photo-op. The worst part comes when the president meets a young
mother and child who are desperately searching for their missing father
and husband. President Bush takes the picture of the child's father and
signs his name across it, telling the young girl, "When your daddy comes
back, tell him you met me." For a child and wife facing the devastating
loss of a loved one who very likely has just been burned, crushed and
buried in rubble, meeting the president doesn't rightly matter. Nor does
it matter having his signature scrawled across a photo that you wanted
to display on a wall of missing victims -- something that would have
offered at least a glimmer of hope.

A "mind-numbingly boring" propaganda film
A 9/11 widow reviews last night's Showtime film about President Bush's
actions on and after that fateful morning.
