More Bush bashing! [Aug. 5th, 2004|06:17 pm]
Brad Fitzpatrick
Since I've gotten such wonderful responses (example 1, example 2) to my "Bush bashing", here's another! Whine and I'll keep 'em coming.

N.M. GOP to Continue Asking for Pledge
RIO RANCHO, N.M. - Republicans in New Mexico say they will keep asking some people who want to attend Bush-Cheney campaign events to sign an endorsement pledge before receiving tickets.


Shi said the GOP campaign plans to correct errors and omissions in the pledge: "I ... herby (sic) endorse George W. Bush for reelection of the United States." Besides correcting the spelling of hereby, it will make clear what office Bush is running for, Shi said.
But really, why would you sign a pledge to a candidate before you heard their pitch?

That's like saying "Yes, sir, I'll buy this car, then you can tell me how great it is afterwards."

Well, not so much you as that other dude. My god. I wish we kept logs on when people delete/undelete their journal.... I wonder if he deletes his journal every argument he gets into.

I hope he's got that 'ninja-smoke-bomb disappearing effect' handy for when he's arguing in person.

I wonder if he chains and padlocks himself to a tree and declares a hunger strike when he gets into a disagreement with his high-school teacher.

Man, you really need to bring your views of Bush into line with the man's obvious greatness. And you and all the other people are obviously being narrow-minded in your view of what constitutes "proper" English.

(C'mon, people. complain! Help keep the funnies flowing here! =)

In New Jersey doors have signs that say you must have a shirt and shoes to enter.

In Texas, the same signs are changed to no guns allowed in McDonald's.

I bet we found WMD's in Iraq, just Bush had them shipped to his ranch so he can fire them off after he is done being President like kids with fireworks.

I have client that actually has a NO GUNS sign on their front window. They had a "problem" employee and found a gun in his desk, they wanted to fire him but were afraid and he claimed there was no stated policy on it.

The only problem I have with people picking on Bush all the time is their leaving Cheney alone and NONE of us know what that guy's doing. All those secret meetings, and having the energy producers write the nations energy policies.
I for one can only HOPE he {Bush} follows in his fathers footsteps and is a one term president, I shudder to think what he'll get us involved in if he has another 4 years to muck things up.

I cannot believe that you are publicly disrespecting the President of the United State, George W. Bush!

(Now will you do it some more?)

Keep the Bush bashing. I loved how people were trying to explain what Bush really meant in his latest mangling of the English language. Um, hello? We know what he was trying to say, it's just funny that something happens on the way from his brain to his mouth that makes him sound like a complete moron. Kind of like Jessica Simpson...

What bashing did you do? You just posted a direct quote.

Sounds to me like it's Dubya doing all the Bush-bashing.

The Daily Show's take on this was pretty accurate, imho. The point isn't to convince people who are undecided, the point is to be filmed speaking to a bunch of already-convinced people, and then convince the undecided using that footage. ("If everyone else {likes,believes,trusts,supports} him, so should I!")

very true. although a comedic satire, the daily show is probably the most insightful political show i've ever seen. never underestimate the power of satire. i just wish more people would watch it because it's just so dead on, and covers things that most other media seem to intentionally ignore, and hence, most people never knew were spoken/done.

jon stewart for president!
