Laughing Out Loud

Word is out
that Bush has another fox appointee to guard the henhouse. Susan Dudley has been appointed as regulatory czar for the Bush administration. She currently works for an outfit (that, kudos, just received an $80,000 "grant" from Exxon Mobil!) which argued that "historical evidence suggests" global warming "is likely to be beneficial, occurring at night, in the winter, and at the poles."

She also wanted to make car air bags "optional."

Apparently she is personally responsible for the statement that there "is a wide range of uncertainty in the science surrounding the health effects of arsenic in U.S. drinking water supplies."

Hey, arsenic, global warming, and steering wheel impact might actually be good for you. Let's face it, the jury is still out.

Other things that are good for you, according to the Bush administration:

delay (both Tom and time)
underfunded schools
occupied Iraq (but hey, we're painting the schools there.)
marriage, if you are a man and a woman, as often as you like; same-sex, never.

Let no one say that this administration is putting the interests of big business ahead of the interests of the American People. That may be true, but don't let anyone say it.


  1. Bush sure knows how to pick a winner, eh?

  2. Also for that list:
    - war
    - pestilence
    - famine
    - intolerance/bigotry
    - hegemony
    and, of course,
    - cronyism

  3. Hey, those panties are cute! Gimme a link. My Hello Kitty undies are getting old.

  4. Well, no one can accuse this administration of being minimalist. Its corruption, lies and thuggery come at a furious pace. Some days all I can do is shake my head and wonder how it's possible these criminals still call the shots. It's hard not to feel overwhelmed, not to wonder if our country is too far gone to save. I refuse to give up, but some days are incredibly trying. Don't mean to be a downer, folks. I'm just so sick and tired of these bastards raping our country with impunity and bleeding its citizens dry while offering nothing but fear, tax cuts for the rich and more body bags in support of our troops. I'm sick of their condescending vampire smiles - George's, Dick's, Rummy's, Condi's, Tony's, Alberto's. Sick of everyone not screaming the emperor has no goddamn clothes. Sick of their daily transgressions of our Constitution, Geneva Conventions and international law, while the majority of Dems and the MSM still feel they must tiptoe around them. Still refuse to say, "No more." Simply infuriating.

    Sorry for the rant. Bile overload. Drive thru.

  5. I'm sure Ms. Dudley will do a heckuva job.

  6. The most amazing thing is that they don't even *pretend* to be responsible custodians. They don't even *try* to make it look good.

    "Yeah, that's right - we're hiring lobbyists to regulate their own industries, whatcha gonna do about it?"

  7. Lovely.

    You'd think they would at least try to look like they aren't out to destroy life on this planet. At least a little.


I really look forward to hearing what you have to say. I do moderate comments, but non-spam comments will take less than 24 hours to appear... Thanks!
