The Lady Speaks

Chicken-Plucking Factories?!


“Er… Monkey go, ‘ooh-ooh’?”

We’ve known for some time that our President is a few crayons short of a box, but what in the name of hell was he rambling about? I mean, did he take too many meds – or not enough? Drink too much – or not enough?

This is the so-called “Leader of the free world” speaking to a (pre-screened, no doubt) audience in Ohio:

“There are jobs Americans aren’t doing. … If you’ve got a chicken factory, a chicken-plucking factory, or whatever you call them, you know what I’m talking about.”

“I’ve been in politics long enough to know that polls just go poof at times.”

“There are some similarities, of course” between Iraq and Vietnam. “Death is terrible.”

God/dess help the free world!

We have got a pretty big problem when even the Associated Press is noticing he’s running off at the mouth:

Maybe the president just felt like jabbering at the town hall-style event in Tipp City, Ohio. He began talking about terrorism and ended 90 minutes later after chattering about everything from life after the White House to Vietnam War and the brutal Khmer Rouge regime.

As he has before, Bush told the story about how his first presidential decision was to pick a rug for the Oval Office, a task he quickly cast to his wife. He told her to make sure the rug reflected optimism “because you can’t make decisions unless you’re optimistic that the decisions you make will lead to a better tomorrow.”

Later, when he talked about his hope for succeeding in Iraq, Bush said, “Remember the rug?”

  2. Don’t “misunderestimate” (His word) Bush. Yes, he butchers the English language. Yes, his communications skills are lacking. Yes, he a buffoon. Yes, yes and yes. But he’s also very very very (I can’t stress it enough) manipulative. In fact, I would say Bush has anti-social personality disorder. And if I’m correct these people are masters at the con job. Bush’s buffoonery is in part a ruse, an attempt to appeal to the “average Joe”. Think about how many people have said he’s the kind of guy you’d have a beer with at the local bar. But Bush is from an elite family, went to elite schools, is worth hundreds of millions of dollars. He’s not “average Joe”. He won two elections, and although his popularity is dwindling, the extreme right remains very powerful in this country. Too often people dismiss them as ignorant rednecks. Maybe they are, but they have gained a lot of influence.
