EARMARKS!?

This is hilarious. George Bush, in what likely will be his final and most humiliating State of the Union Address tonight, will address... earmarks. That's right, baby. The Middle East is still on fire, the economy is in meltdown mode, health care is still in crisis, and all that the worst President in our nation's history has to show for it is... a vow to veto earmarks.

Earmarks.

(At least it's a step-up from his fear-mongering about Animal-Human Hybrids.)

Hey Matthew -- thanks so much for your smart and thoughtful comments. I've added you to the list of links on my blog, and I'll be sure to keep reading...

Wait: You mean we WON'T be getting an update on the Human-Animal Hybrids tonight? G*ddammit how am I expected to keep my fears up to date?!

So after 7 years in the White House, Bush has suddenly realized that pork-barrel spending is "occasionally" tacked onto congressional bills? He's really just now noticing? Sharp as a tack, that GWB.

Bush is an ass with no clue.
He has to be the worst leader in U.S. history.
No one is even close to being as stupid as Bush is.
What a mess he has made of everything.
Sorry, but we were better off under Bill Clinton.
I will not be watching the State of the Union speech tonight.
I just do not believe anything Bush says.
I am,

George Vreeland Hill

I watched it because I get a perverse enjoyment from stalking around my living room and shouting at the television screen. My wife, on occasion, will say, "You know they can't hear you, right?" Doesn't matter, good to get the heart racing every once in awhile.

And Mr. Hill, there is no serious doubt or question that the Idiot is the worst President we've ever elected and that his admininstration inflicted the most damage both domestically and abroad.

Seriously, no question. There's not even a close runner-up
