US President George W. Bush walks away from a briefing with the media, refusing to answer questions after he was asked about Enron and the reported indictment of former CEO Kenneth Lay, who was a close adviser and fund-raiser for Bush and his father, earning him the nickname 'Kenny Boy.'
There are several reasons why I don’t write about Bush in my site.
Social etiquette generally discourages discussing politics. And as you all know, I’m all about being courteous, polite and gushing with good manners.
Though I read a lot on the topic, I’m no expert on politics. There are some excellent political sites and blogs out there if you want to read up on that sort of stuff. On Livejournal there’s throwingstardna. For a more informative perspective, there’s Joshua Marshall. A lot of people also visit The Agonist for the article links. Now if you want to read about vodka, genitalia, lower primates, and all matters of the anus, then you’ve come to the right place.
Arguing about politics in an attempt to convince someone think he or she is wrong, is pointless – unless the point is you want to entertain yourself by seeing whether or not you can make the neocon’s forehead vein pop like a zit. There’s a famous psychology study of doomsday cults where the researchers checked to see what happened when the cults’ predicted dates of the Apocalypse came and went without anything happening. Rather than becoming disillusioned or admitting to themselves that they fucked up, the cult members actually became even more fervent and passionate in their beliefs. But even they didn’t go so far as to name a fucking condiment after their dear leader.
Now that I got all that crap out of the way, here’s my week-late take on “Fahrenheit 9/11.” For my right wing readers who don’t want to hate me, I strongly suggest you don’t click this. I found out my little cousin is being shipped off to Iraq in less than a month. And being a Marine, whenever there’s a shitstorm, they tend to get sent directly to the asshole. For this reason he hasn’t even told his mom yet. And, for this reason, I’m quite a bit more pissed at the fascist wannabes who call themselves the Bush administration.
