Of course, this allowed to not even have to pretend to pay scant attention to the 100,000 or so American citizens who marched en masse on their nation's capital, to protest a policy built on misdirection and obfuscation, and apparently maintained on happy thought and finger-crossing. Way to go, guys. Nicely done.
As if that wasn't enough (and by God, dontcha think it oughta be), it seems that Himself's hands-on Helpy Helperton trip to the front lines in Texas got squashed, not only 'cause he'd be in the way of people who were actually doing something useful, but because the weather wasn't grim enough anymore:
You know, I think it's time we were all united on referring to this entrenching implement as a spade. Bush is as clueless as they come, clearly. He seriously thinks that people were pissed because he wasn't in New Orleans shakin' hands and huggin' black folks. It does not even occur to him that people just figured that maybe, maybe, he'd be slightly more useful pulling the levers of power back in Warshington, than playing grab-ass with John McCain in Arizona and shilling what's left of his Medicare scam in San Diego.
This is your do-nothing moron, values voters. The rest of us are going to make sure you suck on it for the next three years, and send you trudging back to your caves once and for all. We refuse to surrender what's left of this country to your retard gay-marriage paranoia and creationism bullshit. Put that in your Bible and smoke it.
