Understatement If Ever There Was One

Via the War Room:
George W. Bush, talking today about the work he can still accomplish with Russian President Vladimir Putin: "We do have three more years, which I've found out is a long period of time."

Laugh or cry. I post. You decide.

This president states so many bland generalities that sometimes I suspect that he's actually speaking in a secret code to fellow neoconservatives, and once we crack that code, then we'll find out his real message. In order to crack the code, I've tried hiring some mercenaries to capture Dick Cheney and perform ancient chinese testicle torture on him. I'll keep you updated on the progress.

Anyways, I suspect it's not code... Unfortunately, the president is just dumb. Everytime he speaks now, he reminds of the dumb preppy kid in high school who never put any effort into anything, and it showed whenever he had to do a class presentation. He would stand up there and essentially say nothing. He had nothing to say, but since he needed some way to fill up his presentation time, he would just spout out some empty generalities. He would not only state the obviouss, but then he would go on to describe the obvious, like anyone even needed a description of the fucking obvious.

There's Bush. Not content to state the obvious, he'll describe it because he's wholly unprepared and really doesn't have anything to say.

I once lived in Arkansas (Fayetteville) for about three months; I was on a trip around the US that lasted two years -- money and youth to burn (ah, the glory days) -- and one of the things that I never got used to while there, were the religious television chanels and the tongue-speaking 'preachers'.

I'm from California, born and raised, and we've our share of kooks, but the first time I chanel-surfed and saw the tent-revival-type services, being led by the sleeziest-religiwacko I'd ever seen, I was floored. I'd seen such people in movies etc., but the movies never did the reality of *them* justice. They're downright frightening.

George W. Bush reminds me of those tongue-speaking religious zealots holed up in the deep south. Like them, he speaks his own language and only his followers understand him. It's damn creepy!
