At This Moment


7:14 p.m. CST. At this moment I am sitting here on the great American Plains watching the George give his farewell...what...speech...to the troops? I was sort of hoping he'd just come on and say, "that's all folks", or, "arevadirty, mofos...you don't have George W. Bush to kick around any more." But it is the same old canned heat. Channel change.

ADDENDUM:

Oh, did anyone else notice how blood shot his eyes were? Drunk? Bawling? Poking his eyes out?

Cheer up, it will be officially over in a few days. :-)

You're absolutely right -- the TV was on when I got home @ 8-ish (EST) and, walking in on the program, I couldn't tell if it was old or new coverage. G-Bu was mentioning that terrorism was as much a threat as ever -- so I guess his previous claims that he made the country a safer place are null & void???

Hey, when did you add dessert to the menu?

hsack---not a day too soon. I'm mad as hell and I'm not going to take it any more.

intell---yes, he said that immediately after saying he had created a safer America. God.

1979.

Aren't you late for work?

intell---sorry, I can't control myself. In answer to your desserts question...I added it when I came over to Blogspot, but decided it was too wordy (Where Everyone Gets Just Desserts) and changed it last week.

Oh, now I remember!

I am not technically late for work if I call to say that I will be in late -- right? I drive my daughter to school, so going in late is one of the "perks" I'm allowed, since I can't get my raise. Besides, I was on campus until 7:30 last night.

Sheesh.

intell---I love technicalities...and perks.

You can call me early...and you can call me Shirley, but don't call me Sheesh.

George has been drunk often, especially when he went overseas. That's the bloodshot eyes. That's why he goes to bed early. So he can be sober to meet the troops he sends to their death.

Like this report spells it out:

"Bush has fallen off the wagon
Some serious heavy drinking, we've been told
He and Laura have 'temporarily' split up
Apparently Laura is staying at a hotel
while Bush goes on a bender."

Chimp---think she's going to make it permanent after he leaves office?

Being an ex-musician, another thing I noticed, as did my brother, Bush appeared to have what I call trumpet lips...a strange red circle on his mouth...like a trumpet player who gets that mark from the mouth piece. I though maybe it was just me, but my brother called me and agreed that that was what I was seeing. Don't know what that means...Bush plays the trumpet...before giving speeches?

One other thing that caused me to change the damn channel...Condi baby sitting there and nodding in the affirmative at every thing he said. What a puppet.
