An observation

During the ongoing press conference where President Bush is speaking alongside Tony Blair, the Prime Minister of Great Bitten, his outline for the peace plan between Israel and Palestine contains repeated and belabored reference to the eventual goal of creating "two democratic states". Isn't Bush the last person who should be talking about democratic states right now?

He also claims to have defeated Cynicism. Cynicism will never die, and those who think otherwise are a bunch of idiots. But isn't it nice that we're not forcing our system of government on anyone? We're forcing them to choose their own presidents, as we Americans well know is a process that can't possibly divide a country in two or cause unrest between factions of a population.

Tony Blair's opening remarks sounded like the Spanish Inquisition sketch: "There are three things we need to do to achieve world peace, in addition to the election in Palestine.... The third thing we need to do is actually two things...." FOUR! FOUR things we need to do to achieve world peace! Turn Israel and Palestine into TWO DEMOCRATIC STATES, finish our business in Iraq and get the hell - FIVE things! - get the hell out of there and - SIX things! - let them run the country themselves, bring about democracy in Afghanistan, get the American people to stop whining about the results of the election and learn to live with it now that it's over, and get everyone snazzy red unif- Hang on, I'll come in again.

Your attempt at humor fails on count of retardedness.

I suppose it would be too much to venture whether that retardedness is on the part of the writer or the reader. :P

I'm still laughing about your entry. I'm sure you can add more "things we have to do". After all, this is America. Where else can you find a government that sticks its nose where it shouldn't be and isn't wanted?!? Heck, all you have to do is look at Viet Nam. Of course, that wasn't a WAR. It was just a police action (that killed way too many Americans, either during or after they came home and were rejected by their fellow Americans).
Four more years of BS from GB. Oh boy. Something to look forward to, like a tooth extraction without novacaine. Is it my imagation or does he look and act like Dana Carver in "Master of Diguise"? God help us.

Re: 6 things
I'm sure the resemblance to Dana Carvey is far from superficial. When he foregoes the advice of his Cabinet, he invariably turns toward the camera in Ernest-esque style and elicits help from "Wayne".

Oh, too true. ROFLMAO. Four more years watching and listening to Dubya and I'll have wet pants daily. But they say laughter is the best medicine. So I'm safe if I get sick.

Yes, I'm THAT Nidoking. Sometimes I write fanfiction... often I waste all my time playing video games and watching anime. But it's not a waste if I enjoy it, right? I can quote from a movie, video game, anime series, or British comedy apropos of just about any situation, and one of my main goals in life is to entertain people. (The other big one is amassing as much anime and manga as I can... see below for a progress report.) That's me in a nutshell. ("Help! I'm trapped in a nutshell! What a bloody great nutshell this is!")
