I'm completely unfair

When it comes to political discussions, I never give President George W. Bush a break, and I never will. I hate him, and always have.

The first time I remember seeing Dubya was in the nineties when he was running for governor of Texas. He had an annoying priviledged smirk on his fucking face and he spoke like the village half-wit getting boned up the ass with a mop handle. Of course, he won; but I just shrugged it off as a bunch of crazy Texans acting all Texasy and voting for an Ivy League fop who had the nerve to wear a cowboy hat.

In 2000, George Bush couldn't answer one question in the first presidential debate, NOT ONE QUESTION, but he was declared the winner because Al Gore rolled his eyes and sighed. OF COURSE HE DID. He was reacting the way an intelligent person reacts to blatant stupidity. I would have ran across the stage and slapped Bush down like I was the prison enforcer and he was the sniveling bitch who shorted me a carton of smokes. I might have even urinated on him to drive my point across.

Remember after 9/11, when President Bush enjoyed a ninety-one percent approval rating? I was proudly one of the dissenting nine percent. I hated his guts as much on 9/12 as I did on 9/10, maybe more so because so many people were kissing his ass. When the first tower went down, my primary thought, seriously, was with the victims and their families. My second thought was "Fuck that fucking cocksucker George Bush."

Is any of this fair, or even rational? I don't care. I know two or three of my readers support President Bush, and you can defend him if you like; it isn't going to change my mind. George W. himself could drag me from a burning building tomorrow and I'd say to him, "Thanks for saving my life, you simple-minded failure of historical proportions."

In closing, you can count on any political content on this blog to be partisan and ham-fisted. At least I don't claim to be "fair and balanced" like Fox News. I wish the bird flu on the lot of those fuckers.

On the topic of Texans, I am unfair in my opinion of the Dixie Chicks and I don't care what anyone else says about it.

They are cumpsters.



Cankled up cunts.

Have a blessed day,

Umm...let me get this straight. You can run your country's economy into the gound, run up an historic deficit, completely neglect all diplomatic headway made in the middle east before you took office, squander all international goodwill after the country is brutally attacked by terrorists (and, oh yes, sit like a fucking retard reading "My Pet Goat" for seven minutes after hearing about that attack), cook intelligence to lead your nation into a war based entirely on false premises (then, when the WMDs aren't found, spout some bullshit about spreading democracy in the middle east despite your claim during your campaign about not being in the business of nation-building), eavesdrop on innocent Americans, leak the name of a CIA agent to the press because that agent's spouse made known the truth about your bad intelligence in the justifications for the war in Iraq, and all that shit's okay, but if you're a talented trio of country musicians who have the nerve to say you are ashamed to hail from the same state as the guy guilty of all that shit, then you are a whore and a cunt?

Wow. Just wow.

Todds... really... don't be so hard on yourself, you're completely fair to the cunt.

ps: Blonde you are so spot-on about texans, I had the misfortune of meeting one once. *shudder*

Blogger yournamehere said...

I love you, too.

I like the Dixie Chicks. I'm not that familiar with their music, but they put their careers on the line just by exercising their First Amendment rights, an obvious no-no in Dick Cheney's America. They made their comments when the president was very popular, and now that he isn't, they're selling albums again. However, a lot of country music stations still boycott them. To quote Sinead O'Conner, "These are dangerous days. To say what you feel is to make your own grave."

Like I said, I admire the Dixie Chicks, but if someone doesn't, whatever. Let's keep this about hating George Bush.

are you trying to reason with me on this subject? You're wasting your time.

babe, you shouldn't rag on an entire state because of that one asshole. My line "...I just shrugged it off as a bunch of crazy Texans..." is just a joke, since the entire country elected him twice since then.

Blogger Übermilf said...

"Elected?" Really?

I can think of one reason to thank George Bush. He has helped loosen the stranglehold republicans have held on the western suburbs for time immemorial.

Even those who couldn't bring themselves to vote democratic, opted not to vote at all.

Unfortunately, politicians are marketed like a product. People are asked to choose between Brand A and Brand B.

I can't understand why people can't admit they fell for the advertising. People are more picky about their laundry detergent.

Blogger myboyfriendiscrazy said...

I know how you feel. I wonder at times, were people voting for Bush because they thought they were rooting for the underdog, the way I cheer for the basketball team that's 50 points behind with 2 minutes of play left, because they thought that he had no chance at winning?

One can only hope that the votes were all pity votes. That, or people thought there was something wrong with Gore's eyes.

Blogger Trix said...

I'll take the Dixie Chicks over that disgusting hillbilly-fuck, Toby Keith, any day.

Todd, honey, I'm with you. Just remember, he can't be re-elected. Or wait, maybe he can...he's been wriggling his slimy little ass around the constitiution for as long as he's been in office.

Blogger Übermilf said...

Trix is scaring me.

Now I won't be able to sleep tonight.

Blogger Tumbleweed said...

If Bush was the best dick sucker in the world and was at your beck and call to suck your dick on demand....would you like him then??

Blogger sonrisa morena said...

i really do like your passion!! once again you have become my hero, my role model, the favorite person of the year!!

Blogger Cold Hands said...

I'd do him, but you knew that.

Blogger Arbusto said...

You unpatatriotic, un-American, communist loving, terroristic Bastard!

Ok, so I fully support everything you said.

At least Todd sticks to his guns. It always cracks me up when Democrats and Republicans continue defending their guys in the face of them doing something that runs counter to the core of their side's philosophy. It was highly entertaining watching Democrats twist themselves into pretzels to defend Clinton when he signed the welfare reform bill in the 90s. Ditto Republicans when Shrub signed that huge Medicare expansion that gave Seniors drug coverage. I'll probably vote for Hillary just so I can watch Dems go into anaphylactic shock when she does things that are more Republican than Democrat. New revolution, anyone?

Blogger JJ said...

And let us not forget that when the planes struck the tower our brave draft dodging President ran and hid. Even the Republican leadership was furious that he wasn't leading the country.

Dick Cheney, another glorious draft dodger, was even more blatant about running away and hiding when he disappeared regularly to undisclosed locations.

Blogger tlsd said...

I've also met a few NICE texan's.... geeees louse mister... do you always take me so seriously!!!??!?!?!?!

However the biggest asshole I have ever met happens to be Texan...

Blogger Burr-ee-toe said...

I have the Dixie Chicks CD in my car right now. I never liked them before, but I decided I liked them based solely on the fact that they spoke their mind and made no apologies for it. I heart you Todd.

Blogger Sara said...

What's up with all the Texas hate? If all Texans are cow molesting rednecks, then all blondes are diet coke drinking airheads. I personally rejoiced the day Bush was elected (it meant he got his ass out of Texas). By the way, tls, Jerry Jones, while being the biggest asshole in Texas, isn't a Texan. Damn how many commas did that sentence need really?

Blogger Brookelina said...

I want you to know that I love you because of your fabulous taste in politics.

Every time I look at him I want to buy a Dixie Chicks CD.

Texas isn't to blame.

Hell is. And whatever spawned karl rove.

Blogger Rantin' Ron said...

I'm no Bush fan and pretty much hate all politicians but Libs like you are simply fuckin' deranged with hatred for Bush.

There are PLENTY of reasons to dislike Bush without resorting to the childishly shallow and ridiculous claims as to his IQ.

The "moron" got a Bachelors Degree from Yale University and an MBA from Harvard Business School AND learned to fly a fucking JET.

I'm going out on a limb here and guessing that only one percent of the population can boast of those three accomplishments.

So, hate him for his politics, detest him for his Gump-like speech skills, loath him for his goofy grin but, be intellectualy honest and lay off the sophmoric 'Bush is a moron' shit.

After all, he was smart enough to steal two elections, hire Karl Rove, trick almost all Democrats to vote for the war and, of course, line his pockets through deals with the ultra evil Haliburton....right?

Blogger sandegaye said...

Loved this blog!
I so agree w/ every word of it..
The man is a moron.

Blogger Cincysundevil said...

You know, you and I think alot alike. I hate Bush and I don't make excuses for it.

Blogger Ian McGibboney said...

I can understand how hard it is to write an eloquent essay on why one hates Bush. It's very hard to not get steam pushing out of your head.

Rantin' Ron is right about the degree of hatred for Bush, and one only has to read Tits McGee's first comment to understand why we feel that way.

I too didn't give Bush a free pass after 9/11. One of my first thoughts was, "Great. Now they can do anything they want because people are afraid." But it's never been popular to say that.

Rock on, Todd.

Not for nothin', but what other Presidents did after attacks on the US far exceeds anything Bush has done.

Lincoln suspended habeas corpus, one of our most fundamental rights, shortly after hostilities broke out between North and South and Ft. Sumter was surrendered. He's ranked #1 by most historians and the public, despite this fact.

In Feb., 1942, Franklin D. Roosevelt signed Executive Order 9066, which rounded up about 120,000 Japanese Americans and placed them in internment camps without trials or any due process of law. Entire families were split up for years without anyone in the family knowing where the absent members were or even if they were alive. FDR is always ranked in the top 5 Presidents of all time.

Am I saying Bush will ever be ranked highly? No. Nor should he be. All I'm saying is a little historical perspective is needed here. Bush didn't issue an order to round up all Arab Americans after 9/11 and have them placed in internement camps. And certainly a better argument could be made for doing that than for rounding up all Japanese Americans after Pearl Harbor. After all, Pearl Harbor was the nation of Japan attacking a military installation with their national armed forces. 9/11 was an "inside" job, in that it was not a nation that attacked us, but rather individuals who were in the country and had been for years. Bush never even hinted that all Arab Americans should be rounded up. And yet, most people idolize FDR, despite the atrocious way he treated Japanese Americans, while denouncing Bush, despite the fact that he has not used a heavy hand on Arab Americans when there was an even better argument to do so.

History will be the judge, as always. Bush sucks, but we've had Presidents do FAR worse in times of war and still be held up by future generations as heroes.

Bush always one those stupid "Who would you rather have a beer with?" polls. I don't want to have a fucking beer with Bush, Gore, or Kerry. I want to have several beers with Jenna and Barb, the alcoholic twins.

if not for pity, I'd never have sex.

I have nightmares about Jeb Bush being elected.

it's frightening, huh?

hello? HE'S A GUY!!!!

I should run for president of your house or apartment.

cold hands,
I like Ann Richard's politics, but I wouldn't fuck her.

I am a terrorist, an anti-douchebag terrorist.

I'm voting for H.R. Puffinstuff.

Blogger yournamehere said...

I understand about Cheney. I mean, the guy who actually runs the country can't be put in harm's way.

I always take you DEADLY SERIOUS.

I heart to be hearted.

I have no Texas hate. I like the Dallas Cowboys, for god's sake.

I thought you loved me because of my mad bartending skills.

karl rove eats babies. Ironic, given his pro-life posturing.

rantin' ron,
the title of this post is "I'm completely unfair", so thanks for taking the time to point out how unfair I am.

I think I said this before, but you are the world's hottest fifty-seven-year-old.

fairness is for high school newspaper reporters, not unpaid bloggers.

I've said this before and it bears repeating: Those wishing intelligent political commentary should go to your blog. Even though you are liberal (more so than me on certain issues), you have give and take with conservatives in the comments. ANd the whole enterprise is very entertaining.

more fucking logic? Are you Vulcan?

John is not correct about the threat from hidden Japanese insurgents.

People don't come to your blog for a history lesson, but just Google terms like Black Dragon or Black Ocean if you're interested.

Also, I would argue that these three are nowhere near direct comparisons.

What you call logic, I call lame repetition of propaganda pieces.

I have more, but you're probably the only one to read this, Todd. And you already agree with me.

Uber, I'd be happy to debate this stuff with you in any forum you choose. Nothing I posted was incorrect. FDR's order didn't just round up adult male Japanese Americans. They rounded up babies, toddlers, and senior citizens too. Do you think babies were part of hidden plots to take over America? Do you think it's ok for our leaders to indiscriminately round up our fellow citizens and hold them indefinitely, ignoring their Constitutionally guaranteed rights in the process? I guess you do, since you say I'm wrong.

Was Bill Clinton wrong when he formally apologized to Japanese Americans in the 90s for the United States of America's actions in placing them and their families in internment camps?

If you believe there was good reason to round up Japanese American babies, toddlers, and old folks in order to protect the nation from their evil Japanese plots, then surely you believe Bush has a duty to round up all Arab Americans and hold them all in internment camps now. Right? Or could it be that FDR is a Democrat icon, so different rules apply to him than to Bush, a Republican.

Do you also think it was just fine that FDR appointed a former KKK member to the US Supreme Court in 1937 (Hugo Black)? How about the fact that FDR refused to meet Jesse Owens (a black man) when he triumphantly returned from kicking pasty white Nazi ass all over Berlin in front of Hitler during the Olympics. Or perhaps FDR was just trying to be funny when he told a colleague earlier in his adult life that he believed the Japanese were a race formed by the union of baboons and Chinese. He didn't really mean any of that, right? He was a tremendous person, worthy of nothing but our idolation. Not like that bastard Bush. After all, Bush is a Republican.

Sorry about this, Todd. I didn't intend to hijack the thread, but lies have to be called to the mat, or else I'm no better than the liar.
