These are the words of Donald Rumsfeld, revealing his job security. So, let see. Is Rummy King Georges court jester? How about torture designer at Abu Ghraib? Or is he the presidents concubine? All these services would provide pleasure to Bush. But its more than a little perverse that a war planner serves at the presidents pleasure.
So we have the perverse and the embarrassingthe Misleader-in-Chiefs latest Bushism. When asked about Rumsfelds future, George hurled an angry outburst to convince us that he wears the pantsIm the decider, not the decision maker, but, alas, the decider. If the times were not so tragic, and if our image all over the worlds map werent in the toilet, the presidents language barrier would have us belly laughing.
Instead, we cringe.
Here are some servings of evidence:
George Bush and Osama bin Laden have a symbiotic relationship, one in which the president is the 9/11 masterminds greatest recruitment tool for suicide bombers and bin Laden is Georges greatest boogeyman to scare the American public into believing whatever the president needs us to believe at the time. Really though, the relationship is counter productive because every time Bush stomps his aggressive foot, he makes the world safer for terrorists. Their numbers grow in strength and solidarity all over the globe because our foreign policy and the belligerent presidency of George are invasive and exploitive.
These are grave times with the decider Bush and his other pleasure provider Karl Rove who obviously is confounding the civil war in Iraq with diversions that have landed smack dab in front of our facesimmigration and what to do about Rummy. Of course, Donalds consolation prize would be the Medal of Freedom (never has it been so generously bestowed), presented by Bush to anyone who hits the curb. Thats a given. Unfortunately, Donald will stay despite demands for him to step down. The decider has made this clear. Just ask Karl.
Now, back to Rummys serving at Bushs pleasure. I dont know about you, but Im battered by some disgusting images herein fact, some downright revolting ones that make me want to soak in a cleansing tub. I do understand why George is resolute in his support of the beleaguered defense secretary. It matters little that a handful of generals are denouncing Rummy, because what we must remember is that Donald was among People Magazines sexiest men in 2002. Sexy eye candy and serving at the presidents pleasurethis makes for an unforgettable combinationone too great for Bush to sacrifice.
