What a glorious Texas Spring day: 75 degrees and sunny. My sister is in town and all the "kids" fixed dinner for my Mum, who's recoving from knee surgery; Camila's thumb on her right hand moved (that's a big deal!), and I got a letter from my doctor saying my PSAs are normal. I don't feel like picking on anyone today. And then I hear the Texas Sharpshooter's* speech on the radio.


After all these years I still can't decide if he's an idiot or an evil genius. (Bumper sticker I saw in Ausin: "Somewhere in Texas, a village is missing its idiot")


Is there a word that coveys both meanings? One that doesn't malign savants (although that's kinda what he is)----- geniot? idious? Not since the days of Arlequino has anyone made stupidity work for them like that!


Anyway, here's my offering:



Bushworld


  


The Iraq war’s a success


The economy’s going strong


In George Bush’s reality


Everyone else is wrong


 


The problems in the Middle East


Come from meddling by Iran


Hamas, not Israel, you see


Is holding up the Plan


 


Millions of Iraqis


Are now enjoying Freedom


The two million, more or less


In Syria and Jordan?


 


AT&T and Verizon


Are patriotic spies


Anyone who can’t see that


Has sawdust in their eyes


 


Mexico’s well earned reward


For supporting our world order


Is seven hundred miles of fence


Along its northern border


 


This double talk is double speak


Right out of 1984


Twenty four years of right wing lies


And now it’s knocking down our doors

Sitting up in the wee small hours because I got spooked by something at work tonight ... and <i>this</i> spooks me, too! Although I really love the "geniot" and "idious" ... my vote's for the latter because it's kind of like "hideous"!
