Bushworld

You may have read Maureen Dowd’s rip on Bush – if not it’s worth a reading:

In Bushworld, our troops go to war and get killed, but you never see the
bodies coming home.

In Bushworld, the C.I.A. says it can’t find out whether there are W.M.D.
in Iraq unless we invade on the grounds that there are W.M.D.

In Bushworld, there’s no irony that so many who did so much to avoid the
Vietnam draft have now strained the military so much that lawmakers are talking
about bringing back the draft.

In Bushworld, we’re making progress in the war on terror by fighting a war
that creates terrorists.

In Bushworld, you don’t need to bother asking your vice president and top
Defense Department officials whether you should go to war in Iraq, because
they’ve already maneuvered you into going to war.

And my personal favorite

In Bushworld, it’s perfectly natural for the president and vice president
to appear before the 9/11 commission like the Olsen twins.

    I know alot of people enjoy Dowd, but I think she jumped the shark a long time ago…

    We’re not “creating” terrorists. They already existed. The strain she mentioned in the military doesn’t seem to be affecting reenlistment rates which are the highest in quite some time. Her broad generalizations make her a great source of information for those who don’t want to dig a little deeper into the facts…facts are such a pain in the ass.

    COMMENT:
    YES you are creating terrorists!! It’s the arrogant attitude of the US that the rest of the world sees so blatantly that has so many misguided, angry, despairing young men flocking to join the the fundamentalists and the suicide bombers. But don’t worry, bury your heads in the sand long enough and you’ll find all that US oil that somehow made it to Iraq…and some of you (read Dubya’s friends) will get very very rich in the process.

    I have been hearing rumors about Bush’s sexuality, and a long time male lover in texas, or the mayor of an eastern city (Bloomberg?). Heard anything?
