Bush Family Vacation


The Bush family during a recent vacation in New Orleans. (Who knew you could catch such a nice striped bass in the French quarter?)









As Cindy Sheehan and the normal group of True American Patriots descend upon Crawford, Texas for yet another attempt to explain the opinion of the majority of Americans to President Bush, I wonder if the president is planning another vacation in the area for the holidays. As most unpatriotic Americans are preparing to enjoy a non-political holiday with friends and family, these heroes are doing what they can for the rest of us poor, unenlightened sheeple. I certainly thank them for their generous use of their precious time. Kind of gives a little real meaning to the much commercialized idea of Thanksgiving, doesn't it?

What would we do without these patriots? Probably just go on living our lives in an unaware manner, happy to let others (well-trained and voluntarilly doing the job) make our lives safer and more secure. The dangerous people in the world need to be kept in check by these freedom fighters. Most of us are too busy actually living our lives to take on the challenge, but Cindy and her friends are there to take up our slack! How else would we be able to enjoy street theater portrayals of our president as a madman, bent on destroying and subjugating the poor people of the world, or see lovely handmade signs and banners, artfully describing our armed forces as the tools of a misguided colonialist, imperial power? Let's not forget the wonderful musical renditions of such patriotic ideals as "America hates poor minorities, every one" and "We support our troops even when they are fighting for a lie".

I know many of you feel that you are safer this holiday season and more secure in your freedom because of our efforts abroad on behalf of our volunteer military. Be assured, though, that Cindy and her friends know better. It is a volunteer force of patriots that is keeping you safe but not the one you're thinking of. It is the Army of Dissent, backed up by the supporting forces of political haymakers, that is truly securing our future in this world. And what a future it is...

I saw that picture on Halloween, but didn't recognize W! Then I figured it out, it was 'cause he was SMILING! Haven't seen that in a while.

I thought the media gave up on Cindy? Will she be lonely in her ditch? Let's hope so!

Love the picture. Now we know what Bush was doing to fill time while waiting for Blanko to stop sniveling and authorize FEMA and the Red Cross.

Shelly,
Being a fisherman, I'd have to say he spent his time productively...

Maggie said...

Cuz,
Picture looks fishy to me.(apology included)

Libby Gone™ said...

Good points, Beerme.
I can only hear the arrogant conversations in her circle of "freinds". Oh do I long for the days when someone said Cindy immediatley Miss Crawford came to mind.............

Hawkeye® said...

Great pic and story! Love it! Was this your first dive into satire? It was certainly a good one... I rate it a 9.7

Beerme said...

Maggie,
Bass alright cuz, apology accepted!

Libby Gone™,
I think I prefer your world view...

Hawkeye®,
Thank you sir! I think it is my first attempt at satire. I think I need a little work in that area, tho'...

Stripers are fun to catch, but don't try to eat one.

Beerme said...

kajun,

Welcome back! Don't get to hear from you enough.

I wouldn't want to eat anything caught on the street corner in the French Quarter...

Maggie said...

My husband wasn't much of a fisherman.In fact,the day he left ,I asked why and he said I was always 'carping'about something.

Beerme said...

I'm "herring" what you're saying but it sounds like a "whale" of a tale. I can't believe an "angel fish" like you would ever "carp" at anybody. I "spec" you'll be "eel"-lated to hear that fish story squashed flatter than a "mackerel".

Hey, you started it...

Maggie said...

Beerme,
deep sighhhhh,you win.

Beerme said...

Yes, cuz, but at what price...?

Maggie said...

No price.....I had a good laugh and that's what it's all abait.
Your comment was a real croaker.
(best I could do)
