On the fateful day of Waterloo when the last two battalions of the French Old Guarde were surrounded by Prussians and English they were offered to surrender. According to the legend Cambronne, the last general standing, though badly wounded himself answered for all of them, ’Merde! La Garde est mourir, mais n’est ser render pas!’ ( sh*t! The Guarde dies but does not surrender!) And since that time that first word Merde is called in France, c’est le mot de Cambronne (a word of Cambronne).

It is remarkable how this very word is applicable to the events and interpretations of what happened here, in the US through the Y2007. It was as if we here were drowning in Merde, waterboarded by Merde and eating the Merde pies. Some of us even learned to love the taste.


The year started with the Dems majority in Congress and our hopes revived. Then we were all drowned in Merde by madam Pelosi herself and her mantra about Impeachment off the table. Not that I trusted her ears very much anyway. But hope dies hard. Still, when I saw the LADY WITH EARS telling me and us all that we could go screw ourselves I felt like I felt in the 1980s in Russia when under the enlightened leadership of the Spotty Gorby they burned the grape vineries in the apotheosis of the campaign against drinking. Not that vodka suffered even a bit.

Then we had our hero, Joe, the Loveman, Lieberman being rewarded for his sleazy behavior by the Chairmanship of the Committee overseeing Homeland Security. He reminds me of those ‘revolutionary Jews’ in Russia who had an irresistible urge to Secret Police. It was their lifetime dream- to put on a leather jacket and look tough. Our Joe wanted at first to be a member of the War Council and then he got stuck with the Homeland SS where the money is. Please, do not throw the anti-Semitism at me; Joe is as much a real Jew as those pseudo- revolutionaries were. Both are just an international type of human trash. Merde is Joe’s natural habitat.


It just stinks everywhere. Our friend, Paul Wolfowitz after a sex scandal in the World Bank (!) is put under Condi’s wings. She will cuddle him as some kind of an advisor. Folks, can you imagine a person who used a position in the World Bank for sex? I can’t. But after that his prowess seems handy in the Condi’s area to do what? To screw nations instead of individuals? Wolfowitz is such a turd that his stench would depopulate the large areas on Earth if you know what I mean. Maybe they think that Foggy Bottom does not stink enough?


Hey, where is Gonzi, our fearless former AG these days? Writing a book, no doubt. I mean someone is writing it for him. They all write books these days. Scotti M, that former Press- Secretary had just revealed that he lied for the pleasure of our President. This is big, I mean Big. But not even one MSM head rises from that pool of Merde to ask at least one legitimate question – when will our nucular guy and his bird/human killer VP resign in disgrace? NOPE. We continue to sit deep in Merde and, paraphrasing the Russian saying, ‘tell each other not to make waves.’

Waves. We, of course, are allowed to pretend that we live. Like, for instance we are welcome to ‘debate the issue of illegal immigration.’ Big deal. The only luxury you have when you sit in the pool of Merde is not to allow anyone else to dive in. Boy, my fellow-progressives are soo… immigrant- aware. Where do they get the time, I wonder? Two words they use fascinate me: Illegal and Benefits. That is if a person is here illegally, that person uses the benefits designated to the citizens only and that is the MAIN PROBLEM. Not Bush, mind you. Not war, Not death. Not recession. THE BENEFITS!
