Disturbing [Jan. 16th, 2001|11:54 am]
Brad Fitzpatrick
Read this interview with Dubya. Even ignoring how poorly he speaks (most disturbingly, starting the majority of his sentences with the word "And"), read how arrogant he his about his new position:

Tom Brokaw: And some forms of — birth control even. What if he appoints a Solicitor General who will make the case of the government before the U.S. Supreme Court who shares his feelings, would that make you unhappy?
George W. Bush: But you understand who’s the president? He understands who — who’s going to occupy the chair in the Oval Office. John’s a team player when it comes to that.

...

Tom Brokaw: President Clinton is going out of office with an approval rate of 64 percent, higher than Ronald Reagan or any other outgoing president in modern memory. That says the country likes what he’s been doing.
George W. Bush: Well, maybe so, but he’s not going to be the president on January 20. I am.

I'd like to note, for the record, that I am in no way responsible for that loon being in office.

Nor me! (Although I don't think you needed to be told that, given that I'm both under the voting age and in completely the wrong country.)

It's those dummies out in Florida --- they're responsible. If they're too dumb and cannot punch a ballot properly/follow an arrow, then their vote --- the vote of ignorant dummies --- shouldn't count anyway!

Um, don't forget that almost half of florida is over 80, well elderly at least. So a workable ballot for them would have been nice.

Re: :::sigh:::

Just a guess from someone fairly familar with sarcasm

(*I* thought it was funny...)
