There are too many jokes about killing Bush in the world
Randi Rhodes, one of the most annoying radio hosts I've ever heard, ran a skit on her program on Monday that depicted a shooting of George W. Bush. This gets brought up on Drudge and Air America and Rhodes apologize.
Bush lying to and manipulating the public in order to enact policies that result in killing people is not that big of a deal but make a joke about killing Bush and you've crossed some sort of line that exists I don't know exactly how. Yep that makes a lot of sense. There are just too many jokes about killing Bush in the world. They pose a real problem and threat to us all. As for the actual killing of people by the United States, there just isn't enough.
What we just don't seem to understand in these liberal times is that that the reason the president can treat us like we are we idiots and we still go along with his plans is because he is better than us. He is our King. He is our God.
