A running rant about bad television, crappy products, horrible service, mindless politics, corporate and government ineptitude, moronic media, marketing overload, public idiocy, stupid entertainment, etc. Here's what's annoying me today:

House of Card



So Bush's Chief of Staff Andrew Card resigned today. Can somebody tell me what this guy did anyways? You never heard him talk. Most Chief of Staffs are much more visible, aren't they? The only thing I ever remember him being personally involved in was interrupting Bush while he was reading My Pet Goat on September 11.

Karl Rove was supposedly the Deputy Chief of Staff, but you certainly heard a lot more about him.

That seems to be the way the Bush Administration works.
  • Andrew Card was Chief of Staff, but Karl Rove is really Chief of Staff

  • Bush is President, but Cheney is really President.

  • Rumsfeld is Secretary of Defense, but the "brains" (term used VERY loosely) behind the Iraq war was really his deputy Paul Wolfowitz.

It's kinda like the Wizard of Oz, huh. Pay no attention to that man behind the curtain.

Up here in the GWN we've been enjoying hearing how Mr. Bush is looking forward to speaking with Mr. Martin, our Prime Minister, at the Cancun meeting because he considers Canada such an important ally.

So important that he doesn't realize Paul Martin is no longer our Prime Minister.

Yeesh.

No idea, but the choice will certainly come down to their right wing nut job vs. our left wing loonie.

It will be like stealing candy from a baby.....again! And Leif, presidential spokesperson Scott McClellan is who referred to the upcoming summit with “Prime Minister Martin,’’ not our beloved President George W. Bush. Not that McClellan should have fucked it up!

This process in politics is good for the country. When the democrats have had enough savage beatings in elections they will come around to our way of thinking and propose more reasonable reforms and policies. The conservatives are like political Drano. They will get rid of all the crap and by then we'll be tired of them and flush them away!
