How about this humor?
I'm all for funny, so I hope that Mr. Mehlman will enjoy this entry...
Last week two flight attendants sued Flair and some other wrestlers for sexual harassment. Flair and the other wrestlers, they allege, subjected them to "degrading and humiliating treatment."
Some might say that Bush's comments were in poor taste given these events, but what they don't know is that Bush had planned to say:
I remember one time me and Big Ric were taking a flight from Atlanta GA. We drank our asses off and showed those stews a little bit of fun. Goddamn we had a good time!Say what you will about the Bush Administration, but I think they are really nothing more than a bunch of harmful jokesters. And while the comedy might not be worth the cost, so long as the world is paying it, you might as well enjoy the fun. And none of their shenanigans are more amusing than when members of the Bush Administration impeach the credibility of one another.
"We've learned after September the 11th that oceans no longer protect us from an enemy," Bush said on September 19, 2002.
However in a March 22 Washington Post piece, National Security Advisor Condoleezza Rice said, "The al Qaeda terrorist network posed a threat to the United States for almost a decade before the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001. Throughout that period -- during the eight years of the Clinton administration and the first eight months of the Bush administration prior to Sept. 11 -- the U.S. government worked hard to counter the al Qaeda threat."
The fun doesn't stop there. With Iraq appearing to be safely on the way to becoming the new Afghanistan, where the savages have this crazy idea that they should have some say in the policy of the government that rules them, there is concern from some senators that June 30 is too soon to transfer control of Iraq to some group of Iraqis or another, but Bush vows that June 30 is the date. Speaking on the necessity of the June 30 transfer, Paul Bremer, according to a CBS News report I saw this morning, said the "occupation" represented the "humiliation" of the Iraqi people.
I really wish I was making this stuff up.
