Some of the choicer quotes.
Fallujah. Signing statements. Abu Ghraib.
Waterboarding. Stress positions. Free speech zones.
The theological and historical differences between Sunni and Shi’ite. How levees are constructed. Why levees fail.
These are things I knew nothing about until George W. Bush.
Some nights I go to sleep under this administration and wonder: What new horror am I going to have cram into my head tomorrow morning? What new form of torture? What unfamiliar town or province?
My brain’s been hijacked and my eagerness to read news killed. I know too much now compared with how much I knew in the innocent 1990’s. And there seems no way to un-know it or bleach it clean of the flavor of its original acquisition.
When I was 20, I was in a serious car accident. . .The day I was released from the hospital, I went home and took a shower, the first in nearly six weeks. As I lathered up – a luxury I can still savor in memory after weeks and weeks of bed-bound sponge baths – my fingers found, underneath my arm and along my shoulder blade, embedded pieces of gravel and glass that had not been properly debrided. I realized they were going to be a part of me forever because my flesh had already healed over them.
I feel like George W. Bush and his policies are gravel and glass in my brain. Forever.
The final deranged point being, I suppose, that the knowledge this poor woman has been forced to gain these past five years is more than she can handle, and she equates these bits of knowledge with the horror she experienced in her car accident.
Perhaps, if Clinton were still in office, we could instead contemplate the actions of a President obsessed with getting fat young interns to fellate him, and the meanings of terms like “Sex, lies and fellatio” and to focus on that, rather than a culture that desires to wipe us off the face of the earth.
If Clinton/Gore were still in power, we wouldn’t face that threat, because Bill and his ilk would be too busy chasing skirts, ignoring the threat of Islamofacism, and the NOW would simply nod in agreement, since they keep the abortion license available.
While the Kossacks would be whining that not enough aid is being sent to the Islamofacists, since that is the source of their rage. We have, and they don’t.
When the reality is that we are not Islamic, and they are.
Yeah. Sure. Let’s go back to the alternative.
Kos never ceases to amaze.
