Today I must shed my usual polite, tactful writing style for a moment and vent. I know, it’s a radical change from the norm, so apologies in advance if I type something slightly rude.
Sitting here munching my lunch, I am still trying to process today’s soul-suckingly pathetic attempt by the White House to rewrite history, claiming that they have never been locked into a “stay the course” strategy. “This has always been a dynamic policy that is aimed at moving forward, at all times, on a number of fronts,” says White House talking asshole Tony Snow. “It’s never been a stay-the-course strategy,” says White House strategic asshole Dan Bartlett. LIARS. We all know that they’ve been saying nothing but “stay the course” for the past couple of years. “We gotta stay the course! We won’t cut ‘n’ run like them terrr-lovin’ Democrats! We gotta keep fightin’ and killin’ and dyin’ till we get the job done, whatever it is! No sir, not gonna back down, not gonna pull out. Stay the course! America, fuck yeah!” Shit, this pisses me off. Many other (and better) blogs are listing direct quotes which prove this as bullshit, so I’ll only do a couple:
“We’re making steady progress. A free Iraq will mean a peaceful world. And it’s very important for us to stay the course, and we will stay the course.” – July 10, 2003
“We will stay the course, we will help this young Iraqi democracy succeed, and victory in Iraq will be a major ideological triumph in the struggle of the 21st century.” – August 30, 2006
One of those is from the White House’s own website! Jesus Christ monkeyballs! The folks at thinkprogress.org even have a video montage showing Bush and his minions using this idiotic phrase over and over again. My mind is still reeling from the shamelessness of it all. These people really do think they can get away with anything. From the looks of it, they can.
But you know what? As painful and stupid as this is to watch, it also brings a bit of evil joy to my heart knowing that many who voted for this suited simian are now feeling completely duped. But what can I say? You get what you vote for. This man has proven himself again and again to be a complete fraud, a disgusting little shitmonkey who has brought nothing but shame and disgrace upon this country. You people who voted for Bush and his band of criminal fucktards have done irreparable damage by sending thousands to die for lies and oil. So the next time you step into that voting booth, take off your patriotic blinders and think about what the hell you’re doing.
