But when Bush II wrote a letter to President Chirac of France explaining High Priest Bush II's Biblical reasoning as the backdrop for invading Iraq, on official White House government stationery no less, those doubters had to admit they had misunderestimated High Priest In Chief Bush II.
Yes, no one really thought that one republican bumpkin could bring down the U.S. economy by shipping it off to two dubious wars, alienate the world, then make fear the number one government product in the good ole USA.
As it turns out they were "spot on", as the British say, because it finally took the whole Republican Party to do it, led by the neoCon neoFascist infestation, which is now morphing into the Tea Party ideology of cacophony.
Their neoCon high priest doctrine needed new packaging, a Version 2.0, if you will, so the twin pillars, Sarah Palin & Todd Palin were used to re-plumb the propaganda sewers with the help of Joe The Plumber.
Evidently they seem to think they won the presidential election in 2008 because they are making the same lame deja vu arguments all over again.
They are planning to sell that same product in November of 2010, 2012, and evidently from then on.
They have become criminally insane, thinking that Americans want to pollute the earth, to drill in deep, dangerous waters, to torture people, to give endless amounts of money to banks, to let corporations outspend individuals 1000 to 1 during elections, to get rid of social security, to elevate priests over civilians in government, to ever increase military spending, to engage in endless wars, to have no minorities in government, to hate those of other religions, and to become habitual liars.
The stark truth is that the republican right is wrong, and that Bush II was the First Sarah Palin:
"We cannot let terrorists and rogue nations hold this nation hostile or hold our allies hostile.''(Click Here For The Top Ten). If George Bush can become president, so can Sarah Palin.
"Mr. Vice President, in all due respect, it is — I'm not sure 80 percent of the people get the death tax. I know this: 100 percent will get it if I'm the president."
"You know, I was campaigning in Chicago and somebody asked me, is there ever any time where the budget might have to go into deficit? I said only if we were at war or had a national emergency or were in recession. Little did I realize we'd get the trifecta."
"This is an impressive crowd — the haves and the have-mores. Some people call you the elite. I call you my base."
If the republicans take control of the House, the Senate, or the White House in the near term, it will prove The Dredd Blog Thesis.
