Bleatin' Heart, Bush ...
It seems it needs simply the slightest sort of spat, to send some self styled super stars into sour & sullen sulks.
Apparently, over the weekend George W. Bush has gone and gotten all 'gobby'.
[Gobby's Brit slang for sullen or sulky, by the way.]
Like the late and legendary, lovely lady of the silver screen, Greta Garbo, Dumbyo now wails that he want's to be left alone. Well, This Old Brit sincerely hopes the pseudo-cowboy from Crawford gets his wish granted -- in due course, of course -- and, via due process.
Commenting on why a big tough guy like himself couldn't [or wouldn't] come out to chat with a little-lady-in- a-ditch, like Cindy Sheehan, he whimpered, whinged and whined as follows.
I think it's important for me to be thoughtful and sensitive to those who have got something to say."
Oh really, George? Then why the hell aren't you?
Then, the narcissistic nerd even had the barefaced, brazen nerve to bleat a bit more.
"But," he added, "I think it's also important for me to go on with my life, to keep a balanced life."
Forgetting for a few fleeting moments the fact that this frat-brat, thanks to his permanently pampered & privileged existence since birth, doesn't have the remotest idea of the meaning of "a balanced life" -- This Old Brit wonders how the hell it was that not one single, solitary sob of a media whore, had the balls to call him on such an utterly obnoxious [and erroneous] utterance.
God alone knows where George gets the gall.
Isn't that precisely what millions upon of millions of other people want as well? Including more than half of his own fellow Americans ? Don't they keep telling him that they too 'want to go on with life, to keep a balanced life,' -- instead of fighting, killing, dying and being bereaved via his lies-based, illegal oil-wars?
Well, don't they?
Isn't it also what the innocent, regular people of Iraq want? And what millions of innocent, regular people in Iran want, too? And isn't it exactly what the bulk of the rest of the planet's innocent, regular people want? Including those innocent, regular Palestinians whose piteous plight Bush could so easily have helped alleviate, a long time ago.
And isn't it what almost all the none-American people who were unceremoniously, dragged kicking & screaming into the murderous mess of the megalomaniac Bush's making -- by so many of their respective, self serving and despicably devious, coat-tail-hanging lousy leaders -- isn't it also what they all want?
Too bloody true it is, says This Old Brit.
But watching the way Bush's popularity at home is suddenly nose diving -- at almost supersonic speed -- it's looking more & more like lots of us may just get one of our most earnest & dearest wishes granted -- somewhat sooner than we had hoped.
I mean, before he began bleating about wanting to be left alone, didn't anyone ever tell him? Is it actually conceivable that he may genuinely, never even have heard?
