Hey, maybe Australia could keep him

Our president has been away in Australia. Who knew? Who cares? I only care because Australia has some of the most venomous wildlife around, and because anything that sends the asshole-in-chief to the other side of the planet is a good thing.

Anyway, the Australians waste $A165 million on security, rather than giving Bush a few hundred dollars and telling him to go play with the stingrays up around the Great Barrier Reef, and look what happens: a comedy troupe gussies up a few cars to look officially Canadian, and drove an Osama bin Laden imitator right up to the president’s hotel. They simultaneously showed that all this anti-terrorist security nonsense is pure performance art made to inflate the egos of the government and instill fear in our citizens, and made a sharp jab at our president’s priorities and accomplishments.

Bravo. Brilliant.

Now, please, can we impeach the incompetent boob? He’s an evil joke. We really need to end the long national embarrassment.

    Why not pull a reverse ransom? Threaten to strand GW B’uh? in Australia until the Aussies agree to take back Ken Ham.

    Other than not being able to clip my nails on the airplane what freedom’s have I sacrificed?

    if you don’t know, you don’t care. I suppose you missed the whole wiretapping episode, for one, since you bury your head in the fucking sand?

    typical of ignorant rethuglican supporters.

    congratulations.

    your a good american.

    (Start placing bets on whether the wingnut will detect the irony.)

    you shouldn’t have mentioned it, but even THEN i doubt he will be tipped off. right wingers have a tremendously poor sense of irony and wit.

    I’ll put a fiver on it, though I will want odds now that your message and this one exist.

    There are no crimes behind his election, he didn’t steal it.

    He didn’t.

    The first time it was a coup by the SCOTUS who stopped the counting of the votes and declared Fearless Flightsuit the winner because otherwise his right to winning might have been impugned; the verdict contains a clause that declares it does not set a precedent.

    The second time he had to rely on Diebold, ES&S, Sequoya, and Triad Systems… not to mention Kenneth Blackwell.

    Mismanagment of a war isn’t a crime.

    Starting a war of aggression is a crime.

    Mismanagement of a war is “worse than a crime — it’s a mistake”…

    Some aspects of mismanaging a war are criminal, though. Occupying a country and then doing nothing against looters is a crime.
