The Tragedy of George W. Bush

Do you get jealous when you think of George W. Bush’s sheltered, pampered upbringing? After all, Little Georgie got everything he ever wanted; got bailed out of every embarrassing drug and alcohol incident during his playboy years. And every time another business venture failed — “Hello Daddy?!? I made another mess. Hellpp!!!”

And now, he has his own Human Shield of Handlers to protect him from the public he’s alienated. Isn’t he lucky?

Then again, would you want THIS to happen to you?

You certainly get a lot of strange comments on your blog.

Would you like to buy some dirt? Visit my blog. :-}

Anyway, I really like the cartoon. It is so true, and I believe that the majority of Americans now realize how true it is...

Bush's handlers sure are doing a great job at keeping him out of the public eye. Maybe they are trying to avert the possbility of him having a public meltdown?

My guess is that his handlers can tell when he is going through tough times and when he might be more prone to saying or doing things that could derail their power train or cause the blindly faithful to start doubting... and that the "vacations" to Crawford are sort of a way to get him to calm down, adjust his attitude, whatever.

We've seen a bit more of the POTUS lately, as they have trotted him out to spout slogans a few times, and to give him a vacation (at a resort in Idaho) from his vacation in Texas (which must not have been much fun with the protestors hanging around).

At any rate, the lengthy "vacations" seem to be providing negative publicity for Bush. If his handlers should ever decide not to have him take a "vacation" because they fear more negative publicity, we could see some really funny (or scary) things happen. The guy might explode...

Just think of what we are likely to learn about the REAL Dubya once he is out of office... there should be all kinds of fascinating information for us to devour, of the kind that could put a black stain on the GOP for years.

Dr. Forbush: Yeah, I've five of these damn spam comments. They'll be gone in a minute. Glad you liked the cartoon. I saw it in the Seattle paper a couple of days ago and it cracked me up. I think more people are seeing it this way.

Snave: Yeah, it's pretty bad when the president needs a vacation from his 5-week vacation. Maybe he will actually start unraveling right in public, and everyone will be able to see what they voted for.

Like you said, after he's out of office the truth will ooze out little by little. Should be interesting.

Wait just a minute...you mean he's NOT just like me, an average, hard working, never had anything handed to me on a plate, kind of guy?

And here I was thinking he'd be a fun guy to invite to the Xmas party.

BTW- I liked John Travolta much better as The Boy In The Bubble!

Ken: Yeah, I guess that shatters the myth of the regular guy you'd like to go have a beer with.

The cartoon reminded me of that Seinfeld "Bubble Boy" episode. I could picture Bush getting into a "Moors!!" "Moops!!" shouting match.

Though I don't often advertise my hillbilly-tarnished ramblings, this ties in nicely with what I was saying earlier:


Check out the Capitol Hill Blue article today-good stuff, or a horror, depending on your personal fear-factor.

Jolly Roger: That was a great post; I just checked it out (I left a comment).

He's definitely drunk on something, whether booze, drugs or just his own sense of power. Scary.
