On Thursday evening, George Bush pre-empted important television to try to shore up his support with his kool-aide drinking minion base. It's clear that his Republican overlords are scared of rapidly declining poll numbers--they don't want Georgie's misfortunes to be tied around their necks, lest they lose some of their power in next year's congressional elections.
The media has been complicit in the brainwashing of average Americans, shilling for the White House by floating their lies under the cover of "anonymous officials". The Katrina Disasters (the flood and the bungled response) have jolted some reporters into action, finally asking pointed questions and refusing to be met with non-answers. The Bullshit Meters have finally started to peak and it looks like the editorial boards are sick of dealing with it:
From tomorrow's Washington Post:
What a waste of a presidential term. Here we are, less than a year from George's second inauguration (insert GERD attack here), and his followers are already experiencing buyers' remorse. Forgive me for having zero sympathy for their ire. Voting matters. If they would've been paying attention during the campaign, they would've seen this train wreck advancing toward us.
More response on Bush's sermon, from the New York Times:
"Performance" is correct. The only reason this speech was scheduled was because he is tanking in the polls. It had nothing to do with Georgie owning up to the government's failure to protect its people. His model of leadership has failed and as a result, countless Americans have died. He is unfit for office, the charade is over, it's time for this great country to say 'No More Bullshit'!
Will you join the revolution?
