Poopy Chao

Elaine Chao can bite me. So can all of the other Bush apologists who continue to insist that history will judge him kindly.

"History will show that President Bush was successful in protecting the homeland," says Labor Secretary Elaine Chao, the only member of his original Cabinet who remains there.
Really? Here's what happened in my town during Bush's reign.

Anyone remember that? Here's what our lord and protector was doing at the time.

All while the buildings burned and Dick Cheney was ordering people around.

Shall we talk about New Orleans? Let's not.

Apart from the patently stupid idea that "protecting the homeland" is the president's #1 responsibility (It isn't. Protecting our constitution is. See?), how ridiculous is it for these people to even make this assertion?

"Apart from that, Mrs. Lincoln, how did you enjoy the play?"

Arguing about "history" is just kicking the can down the road and avoiding responsibility for right now, when things really suck.

I have been keeping my lips clamped down around this sentence, "Here's what happened in my town during Bush's reign." for months now. "There hasn't been an attach on American soil in 7 years!" they bluster. Do they consider how long an ingenious attack like 9/11 takes to plan? Do they think for a moment about how 1993 was simply a Mythbusters-type test of the plan that helped them reconfigure for 2001? Do they understand that their grand protector has, most probably, not been tested because the new plan has not yet brewed to the testing point?

They have not. Perhaps because it was not their hometown that fucking burned.

Sorry, not diminishing the people hit by Katrina & Rita at all because, they had it much, much worse than we did and it is probably due to the fake "protection" we've been given that they were shafted quite so mightily.

There's so much about all of this that just puts me in a rage so stupefying that I can't put rational words around it. My dearest wish is that Bush and his nearest and dearest are brought up on charges.
