Tuesday music interlude with Shakespeare's Sister

There is something of a Gloria Swanson Sunset Blvd quality to Bush & Cheney, isn't there? Totally deluded right up to the end. They probably honestly think we'll miss them when they're gone.

Did you see, read, or hear Candy Crowley's interview with Bush yesterday?

Bush said:

"I feel a sense of obligation to my successor to make sure there is a not a huge economic crisis. Look, we're in a crisis now. We're in a huge recession, but I don't want to make it even worse." (Clueless!)

"Bush said there was no one person or event to blame for the recent U.S. economic woes." (Blameless!

"Of the housing and financial markets, he said, 'The whole system became inebriated.'" (Drunk!)

'Nuff said. Let's get the shoes out.

I didn't watch it because I saw Bush give Candy a big ol' kiss as the interview started and knew I wouldn't be able to stomach it.

So, just like he wishes he'd fed himself better intelligence about iraq's WMD, he doesn't want to make the economic crisis worse by doing NOTHING?!?

I found myself agreeing with his observation that no ONE person is to blame for our economic woes ... yeah, you're damn right, all you son of shoes are to blame ... a whole of line of shoeworthy bastards! Too bad Reagan's already dead or I'd add him to the list, but for time being: w/GHWBush (denounces voodoo encomics, then embraces it), Alan Greenspan (still doesn't know, can't figure out what went wrong), Phil Gramm (Mr deregulate some more), and Geo W himself (tax cuts for rich while everyone else is the ownership society -- ie owning all the debt).

And NONE of these guys will admit there is NO SUCH THING as supply-side/trickle-down economics, even after we can clearly see it's all smoke and mirrors to keep money at the top, because to do so would reveal the class warfare they've been waging on americans, and if there's one thing they fear, it's that the very war machine they created might be used against them! Oh and Milton Friedman (Mr catastrophe economics) can KMS (kiss my shoe)...

okay, sorry, I guess this new-found shoe-power is getting to my sole (hah!).

err, to be grammatically correct, it should be "sons of shoes"?!?
