It’s Not My Fault!

When I saw the report about the Shrubbery’s VFW speech I knew I had to comment. I hopped over irony, skipped passed parody, jumped beyond satire, sidestepped sarcasm and went directly into Number 7 mode. This was so wrong I knew I had to go with it. I figured that some would perceive this as a stainless steel colander moment and a hyperbolic exercise in hate of the Hedgemony. So be it, it was too good to miss and I got to haul out some terrifically bad moves by the very annoying people who thought they knew what was best for “the people¹.”

Imagine my dismay when this morning I stopped by Dr. Cole’s place and read: Military Coup Planned for Iraq?

It is possible that the Shrubbery thought that Alden Pyle was Gomer Pyle’s brother, and he had probably missed the episode about Alden in Saigon after getting on the wrong airplane in Atlanta while headed to Mayberry for a visit.

Worse Than I Thought

Imagine the Shrubbery justifying not inspecting Chinese food products and using Upton Sinclair’s novel, The Jungle, to explain why it wasn’t necessary.

How about explaining how Tom Joad from John Steinbeck’s novel, The Grapes of Wrath, would approve of all of the tax cuts and no increase in the minimum wage?

Pretty mind boggling concepts, right?

Well, how about using Graham Greene’s novel, The Quiet American, to justify staying in Iraq?

Yes, people, the White House speech writers have included in the text of the VFW speech an extended quote from a novel that portrays how the US stumbled mindlessly into the Vietnam quagmire.
