Mr. President, You're Making Us All Look as Stupid as You

To paraphrase Chris Rock, "[picking on the President] is like calling out a retarded kid for double dribbling. You have to let some shit slide."

Now, this is a guy who apparently went to college. A man who served as the Governor of Texas, and a man who ... Ah screw it. As President, George Bush, jr. manages to make Emperor Nero look like a brilliant civil servant. One fuck up after another desensitizes the world to the sheer scope of his stupidity, and while he is his own man, this jagoff manages to make all respectable Americans look like we were shook from the same genetic driftwood as his dumbass.

In a bizarre attempt to defend his administration's Iraqi policy in a press conference last Thursday, President Bush made the following statement: "I heard somebody say, Where's Mandela?' Well, Mandela's dead because Saddam Hussein killed all the Mandelas." (Reuters)

Please try not to think about this too much. Trying to figure out what the Hell goes on in Dubya's head is like trying to find the nutritional value in a Twinkie. Any reference to Nelson Mandela's death is considered insensitive in South Africa. I wouldn't expect Dubya to know that what he said wasn't even remotely funny much less alone understand that he had maligned a Nobel Peace Prize winning humanitarian.

John Wayne once said of President Kennedy that while he did not vote for him, he was still his President and that he hoped he does a good job. Well I didn't vote for Dubya, and he is NOT my President. Even if Dubya manages to somehow not shove his foot in his mouth any more than he has in the first seven years of his administration, I know he has done the worst job of any president in my lifetime or in my memory.
