Editor’s Note: Democratic Daily reader Sam Osborne emailed this to us today, his LTTE published in the Iowa City Press Citizen:
A caption on a May 4, 2006 Daily Democrat Blog informs us “Bush Target of More Jokes.” Of course the laugh is really on we-the-people.
As George W. Bush’s approval in opinion polls descends into the low 30 percentile, he entertains us by claiming that great purpose has been wrought through miring our nation in his “preemptive” war in Iraq, and takes time to deflect leftover blame onto anyone but his most sycophantic followers.
Aside from possibly thinking he could one-up his father by deposing Saddam Hussein, with little forethought, this president Bush launched his mistaken venture. Now in words of justification befitting a delinquent class-cutup, he passes off his egregious error in judgment by insisting that the world is better off without Saddam Hussein: “Mission accomplished.”
If in place of his war a tsunami had swept up the Tigress and Euphrates, gotten Saddam and in the bargain taken thousands of lives and cost this nation dearly, we might also expect quipster Bush to find jolly good in the destructive wall of water and take credit for its course.
This man can only lead sheep. To his dwindling flock of followers, have a nice bah, bah, bah.
