Because civility is overrated.

Random Things

1. John Kerry Gets Rude: Thank you, John Kerry. Finally, we have a Democratic politician pissing on fuckwads like Dobson and Cat-Butcher for completely hijacking our nation's values as well as religion. Yes, this was a man smeared by idiots repeatedly, but he never at any point backed the fuck down. "I am sick and tired of a bunch of people trying to tell me that God wants a bunch of conservative judges on the court and that's why we have to change the rules of the United States Senate...I am sick and tired of (them saying) they somehow have a better understanding of Christianity, of the Judeo-Christian ethic, of values...We're talking about values? You show me where in the New Testament Jesus ever talked about the value of having taxes and taking money from poor people to give to the rich people in this country."

I couldn't have said that shit better myself. Ok, I probably would've called some people cunts.

2. Fucking Torture: Couple of days old, but everyone who hasn't needs to fucking read this. I recall Our Leader saying something about how the rape, breaking of chemical lights, electrocution, dogs, sodomization, and so on were the work of "bad apples." Bush told the King of Jordan (without ever apologizing to the Iraqi people) he "was sorry for the humiliation suffered by the Iraqi prisoners, and the humiliation suffered by their families...I told him I was equally sorry that people who have been seeing those pictures didn't understand the true nature and heart of America."

Oh yes. The true nature and heart of Bush's America. Wish lists on how to torture detainees. Elevation of a shit-stained motherfucker like Mr. Secretary of Detainee Ass-Raping to Attorney General, where he's to enforce our laws. Appointing a bitch with a long track record of violating human rights and lying about intelligence as Intelligence Director (and before that, overseer of Iraq and UN Ambassador). John fucking Bolton. The "Rich People Are Good And You Are Bad" bill. The "Gay People And Judges Make Jesus Cry" initiatives. Viewing the entire goddamned Constitution of this country as an impediment to achieving one's ideology (damned that judicial independence, damned be freedom of association, damned be the eighth amendment, etc, the president has the authority to "set aside the laws," etc).

But "We do not condone torture. I have never ordered torture. I will never order torture". This is comfort. This is deniability. If we don't use the word "torture," we've never fucking ordered torture, now have we? Ah, language. Letting these motherfuckers just keep playing on, shielded from any real responsibility as they blame the troops they claim to care so damned much about. It's like sex to these bastards. I can just see Dick Cheney trying to get it up so he can pork Lynne -- the Viagra's not working, so instead he reads some of the details of the Taguba report, and all of a sudden, instant boner. There's nothing like fucking over foreigners or the poor to get these guys going.

Yeah, all this shit is the work of some "bad apples." The only problem is this tree's completely rotten. As Should Have Been President Gore said, "In Iraq, what happened at that prison, it is now clear, is not the result of random acts of a few bad apples. It was the natural consequence of the Bush Administration policy." But what else did we expect? We knew what we were getting, and for some bizarre reason I will never understand, 51% of the motherfuckers in this country wanted to get fucked up the ass violently some more.

Just like some poor Iraqi bastard who was in the wrong place at the wrong time.
