Bush In the News and I'm Confused

President Bush has been in the news more than usual the last few days and there are so many things he needs to address that it is hard to keep track of what is being said about what. Here is what I have been able to decipher:

We are safer, but not safe yet, but we will be safer when we move the terror detainees from the secret prisons that do exist, but used to exist or not exist, to Gitmo where they won't be tortured because of the American laws preventing torture that the President signed into law while attaching a codicil that said he could ignore them. Did I get that right? The only thing I'm sure of is that we are fighting something called the War on Terror which is or is not the War in Iraq because the War on Terror has something to do with 9/11 and Iraq had nothing to do with 9/11 but they did back when we said they did . As near as I have been able to figure, the War on Terror will be won when democracy prevails in the Middle East as long as they don't elect people we think are terrorists, fascists, communists, or socialists, any of which is a real possibility.

Since I really don’t have the time or patience to sort it all out and I’m having a hard time believing anything the leaders of our country say these days (Dems, Repubs, Indies, all of them), I plan to vote for Katherine Harris. I’m going to write her in for every open office in Maryland because: A.) Nobody likes her and her lack of support = lack of allegiance to any of the bad ideas currently floating about. B.) I love her fashion sense, and C.) at least I know she won't legislate sin.

I have been mysteriously missing due to an unusually high work load coupled with having to care for my ailing husband. When I say ailing, I am exaggerating ... a lot ... but it does sound interesting.

Speaking of said husband, he (more frequently than the rest of us) visits Gitmo. He is, however, as in the dark as the rest of us (and them) are about the goings on down there. No insight in that regard. No cigars or rum either. So much for that.

Here's what I KNOW: I am becoming more and more fearful of our Administration as time passes. I've never trusted them, but I've also never been afraid to live here. I'm thinking that I am now afraid.

Onto Miss Harris. WTF! To all my peeps in Florida: PUH-LEEZE do not vote for her. Better yet; VOTE AGAINST HER. If it helps, I promise it is not God's will that she be a member of the United States Senate. I, in fact, have been praying over this. I have also been reviewing the Constitution and I am damn sure that the founders did intend for separation of church and state. So-friggin-there, Miss Harris.

Hasta Luego from South Florida.

Anonymous,

Did you mean to support the stereotype that most Bush supporters are simply uniformed individuals willing to rubber stamp anything their boy wonder comes up with? If not, you might want to articulate why you think the administration is "doing a fine job." You didn't give us much to go on.

Sorry, been out of the loop for awhile. But I am back now. Anonymous...throw us a bone here. What part of the initial blog is so swell? The part where we hide people without telling them why and not adhering to the rules set up INTERNATIONALLY to ensure humane treatment of humans captured in war? The part where the people put in a position to lead our country LIED TO THE ENTIRE F*ING COUNTRY and waged a war that had NOTHING to do with the attacks on the US? The part where the entire legislative branch of our government actually agrees on something and our fearless leader chooses to ignore it and do his own bidding anyway? Do tell what is so fabulous about this administration.
