A Bush in
by Patricia Ernest
A Bush in the bird is worth
more than serving in Viet Nam. At least that's what they seem to
want you to believe. A bush flying a jet in the Guard is
much more important than someone serving in the war in Viet Nam?
Well okay, let's just let that go for now. Everyone is scrambling
around trying to prove where bush was or wasn't during his
"service" in the political war in Alabama, and meanwhile
we are right this very minute fighting a real war in Iraq.
Where was bush during the buildup to this war, the war where
our soldiers are being murdered and innocent Iraqi people are being
murdered? I want to see some proof that anything that was said to
justify this war was truthful. Where are the mental records
I'm pretty sure I don't
give a tinker's damn about bush's dental records, or who had lunch with
whom in Alabama. I'm also pretty sure none of this proves anything
worth proving. While the mystery of the Guard duty seems to be making
all the headlines, our soldiers are dying. Sorry to be redundant,
but that's just the way it is. They just keep dying and dying.
Let's talk about that, shall we?
If you are overly concerned
that bush didn't give the required time in the required manner during
his stint in the Guard, or if you think some lies have been told about
that, or that someone had fudged the details, relax, don't sweat trying
to find the proof. If your goal is to prove some hanky panky went
on way back then so that you can cast dispersions on bush, relax, you
don't have to go that far back. While you're wasting your
energy chasing a puff of wind, there's a hurricane right behind you.
Everyone, except, no
there are no exceptions, now knows that there were no wmd in Iraq.
Here's where you can use your detective skills. When we were all
hearing from the UN inspectors that there no wmd in Iraq, try to
figure out where bush was then? Why didn't he hear that
report? Who was he having lunch with that day? As I recall,
at a press briefing Ari told us that during one of the UN
inspector's reports, bush and Cheney were having lunch together.
Well sure, that explains it. Plus it gives bush a good alibi too.
They were probably lunching and chatting about something much more
important than whether or not there was good reason for them to send
our soldiers to war.
Now think back about all
the other events that were staged since this war began. Think
about the Jessica Lynch story, the landing on the carrier, and all the
other "events". Where was bush when these plans were
being made, when events were made bigger than life, and when out and out
lies were being told? Where was bush then? Where is he
now? The truth is out there now, but bush won't
come out with it. He is absent without leave from reality!
If you've been fretting and
fuming about bush's Guard duty, just let it go. If you've been
stressing over how to prove bush hid his Guard records in a spider hole,
forget about it. You're making this much too difficult on
yourself. You don't have to prove anything about bush's
slipperiness, he's doing that for you every day. Don't be
distracted listening to the Republicans crowing about the time
that bush was in the bird. Pay attention to where bush is
today. A proven lie carries much more weight than the hint of
Beware of distractions,
keep your eye on the eagle and the dove, don't worry about a bush
in a bird.
