So, once again the bombs and shooting filled the lull in conversation.

Finally, the Bush in-crowders figured, what's the use of being BMOC's on the world stage, if you can't throw your weight around and torment those you don't like? So the GWB in-crowd called in the jocks, who spent six of the next years beating the living crap out  those they were told “had it coming.”
( "When conservatives have the club in their hands, no one is more sadistic. When the club is removed, no one is more whiney." Glenn Greenwald )

I only mention all this high schooll la-de-da because these  former conservative in-crowders and their toadies at FOX went berserk (berserker than usual) last week because Obama had the audacity to smile and shake hands with (gasp) Venezuela's loudmouth president, Hugo Chavez.  Obama's crime? He broke in-crowder rule numero uno by talking to an out-crowder.

Look, these guys, the GWB in-crowders, turned American foreign and domestic policies into 8-year episodes of Beverly Hills, 90210 and Mean Girls. During their terms they didn't earn a single dime, but lived high off Daddy's credit cards, (that would be the taxpayer's credit card.)

Like pissy high school girls, they refused to talk to anyone who didn't first agree to agree with them.

Like high school dimwit high school bullies, they formed their own fight club, daring anyone who thought they could take them to, “bring it on.”  There were takers, though of course they didn't fight those fights themselves, but called on others to do their dirty work for them, about 5000 of whom are now quite dead. (They will, of course, be remembered fondly at future reunions. Oh, and we'll be needing plenty of handicapped access for thousands of others.)

By the time graduation finally rolled around last November, the GWB crowd had managed to bankrupt America High and manage to convice a startlingly large hunk of the world they no longer wanted to talk to us either.



So, when you hear one of these down and out conservative dead-enders howling that “Obama is weakening  America,” because he is willing to smile and talk to anyone willing to do the same, consider the source.

Because, last November we were freed from them. We graduated. They haven't. They likely never will.  Because, after all, who's going to want to talk or listen to any of them again any time soon. Or ever?
