BushCo 911-I slicer-dicer

Well, Bushy had his Iraq Infomercial on tuesday... He made a pitch for the 911/Iraq combo slicer and dicer.

At one point during his presentation my neighbor started his old beat up Fairlane and the dog started barking so all I heard was...

The war (Varoom --grrr,,,grr,,,bang) September the 11th, 2001(Grrr,,,Varoom,,, varoom,,,roar )we (roar) - murder in the name of a totalitarian ideology that hates freedom, rejects tolerance, and despises all dissent. (Varoom,,,ROAR,,,Woof)aim is to remake the Middle East in (ROAR) grim image of tyranny and oppression -- by toppling governments, (WOOF,,, WOOF) and by exporting terror.

Hmmm,is this our plan? , naw I must have missed some parts ...

Anyhow, since I got distracted,,,

Rude Pundit gives us the gist of the pitch.

When Bush spoke on Tuesday, he was trying, desperately, to get back in the good graces of people like Rude Bro. Unfortunately, what he declared was that the United States (or the "coalition") has transformed Iraq from a relatively stable, if insane and murderous, dictatorship to a battle-scarred, body-part strewn shitstorm of a terrorist magnet, using American soldiers as bait and Iraqis as pawns:"Some wonder whether Iraq is a central front in the war on terror. Among the terrorists, there is no debate. Hear the words of Osama Bin Laden: 'This Third World War is raging' in Iraq." It's always nice to allow the terror masterminds to control the rhetoric and define the terms of engagement, no? Later, he said, "We fight today because terrorists want to attack our country and kill our citizens, and Iraq is where they are making their stand." Or, you know, it's cheaper to drive to Iraq than to deal with American airport security.

hmmm... I'm not buying anymore BushCo products
no thank you
