Topic: "School Holiday" (4)
Dana Something-or-Other, the current spokesperson, stood before the assembled gaggle and admitted that today would be a day that would not be politically advantageous for the Administration of the Incomparable Moron. Somehow, she seemed to be saying, the "Mission Accomplished" banner, unfurled on the deck of the USS Abraham Lincoln, five years ago today, was actually created at the White House, but it had nothing to do with the theatrics in Iraq. Rather, she averred, the banner was congratulatory to the ship's crew, given that their tour of duty was over, and they were on their way home.
More than 3900 young men and women have come home since that day. The President of the United States has not attended one single ceremony marking their homecoming. He has not unfurled one single banner which reads "Mission Accomplished." Frodo has to say that this is the single most bizarre, most disrespectful exhibition of human insensitivity which he has ever personally confronted. Oh, believe dear reader, Frodo has seen evidence and read of unspeakable acts of cruelty, even in Middle Earth, of one living creature acting shamelessly to another, but never has there been a President of the United States who has choreographed these events as if they were political theatre.
These young men and women deserve so much more. The actions of this Incomparable Moron, Incomparable Moron says Frodo, must be chronicled, remembered, so that no one ever, ever, treats this sacrifice with so little respect.
Frodo proposes that the First Day of May, celebrated by some as the advent of Spring and by others as a revolutionary political hoedown, be recognized as a National Holiday. Let us dub this date as "Suffer We the Fools Day," in which we come together and recognize all of the ingenuous stupidity which has haunted our common experience.
The picture of George W. Bush should adorn the commemorative postage stamp. Along the top of the stamp should be the phrase "Suffer We the Fools," and in the respective bottom corners the words "Katrina" and "Iraq" can stand on their own, without further explanation.
Write your Congressman today. Especially today.
