Topic: "Smoochy Time" (4)
Absent from these parts for over two years, George W. Bush today spent two hours in the State of Georgia. His purpose was to speak at a fundraiser for a nondescript Republican candidate for Congress. Given the fact that we are now only 180 days away from his political demise, in fact as well as in theory, it is entirely likely that the Incomparable Moron will not return to cast his incompetent shadow upon the asphalt-covered runways of this, one of the original Thirteen Colonies. This realization represents the first of the many celebrations sponsored by Frodo and Sam as they cast the Ring into the fires of Mount Doom. Soon, Sauron will be "cuttin' brush."
Frodo was taken by the absence of Republican officeholders or wannabees on the tarmacs supporting Air Force One. United States Senatuh Simply Useless (aka Saxby Chambliss, the guy with the highest 'Bush supporter' rating in the entire Senate), is up for re-election and, absent a major competitor, will probably win re-election, was nowhere to be seen on camera. Frodo looked closely at any rear shots of the Incomparable Moron, just to make sure that Simply Useless wasn't down there giving him a big ole kiss right on the buttocks (again). Worthless Congressional names like Westmoreland, Price, Deal, Linder, and Gingrey were also noticeably absent from any of the rush of local reporters not otherwise engaged with traffic accidents or thundershowers springing up in the western suburbs.
In all, it was a big ole yawn. Air Force One took off a little early, probably to beat the traffic. The Incomparable Moron was looking out of the window, and Frodo assumed he was looking for Katrina survivors.
