Stepford wife Laura Bush (shown above in September) was in a tizz that her husband had to duck a pair of shoes, but has no apparent problem whatsofuckingever that her unelected husband is responsible for the wholly unnecessary deaths of at least tens of thousands of people, including more than 4,200 members of the U.S. military in Vietraq.
Laura Bush today stated that the throwing of a pair of shoes at her mass-murdering dictator of a husband at a press conference in Baghdad earlier this month constitutes an act of assault.
Well, she’s right, of course; legally speaking, throwing an object at someone, especially an object that could harm its target should it make contact with its target, constitutes assault. (It would have been battery had one of the two shoes thrown at him by the righteously enraged Iraqi actually hit the “president.”)
So yes, it was an assault.
But an infinitely worse assault was the assault on the entire fucking American democracy when her husband stole office in late 2000 despite having lost not only the popular vote to Al Gore by more than a half-million votes, but also despite having lost the pivotal state of Florida, which “President” Bush “won” by fewer than 550 votes but whose recount the Repugnican-dominated U.S. Supreme Court halted.
It was, in fact, the largest assault on the American democracy of my lifetime.
Then there was the infinitely worse assault on the Iraqi people, whom the unelected Bush regime made pay for the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, although 15 of the 19 9/11 hijackers were from Saudi Arabia, the ruling class of which the Bush crime family is buddy-buddy, and not a single of the 9/11 hijackers was from Iraq, and to this day there is not a shred of evidence that Iraq nor a single Iraqi had had anything whatsofuckingever to do with 9/11. Tens of thousands of Iraqis have died in the Bush regime’s illegal, immoral, unprovoked and unjust Vietraq War.
Because you know, the best way to prevent another terrorist attack upon the United States by angry Arabs is to slaughter tens of thousands of completely innocent Arabs! Yes, the Bush regime’s “war on terror” guarantees that we’ll have terror to combat for generations to come! (Not that that is treason or anything!)
And there has been the infinitely worse assault on the more than 4,200 members of the U.S. military who have died pointlessly in Iraq. They didn’t die protecting their country because Iraq never posed a threat to their country. They died for nothing. No, wait — they did die for the billions of dollars that were stolen from the U.S. treasury and handed over to Dick Cheney’s Halliburton and the other war-profiteering subsidiaries of BushCheneyCorp via the bogus war in Vietraq.
But Laura Bush is really pissed off that her poor, poor husband had to duck a pair of shoes.
Can you imagine what it must be like to be Laura Bush? (If you’re not a wingnut or a Repugnican, I mean?)
To be able to ignore the fact that your husband is a mass-murdering dictator but to be able to have a tizzy about the fact that your mass-murdering dictator of a husband had to duck a pair of shoes?
Laura Bush might miss the White House, but after she finally dies, she can become the first lady of hell. Better to reign in hell than to serve in heaven anyway, right?
