Another Breathtaking Bushism

clipped from news.yahoo.com

HAVANA - An ailing, 81-year-old Fidel Castro resigned as Cuba's president Tuesday after nearly a half-century in power, saying he will not accept a new term when parliament meets Sunday.

Bush, traveling in Rwanda, pledged to "help the people of Cuba realize the blessings of liberty."

"The international community should work with the Cuban people to begin to build institutions that are necessary for democracy," he said. "Eventually, this transition ought to lead to free and fair elections — and I mean free, and I mean fair — not these kind of staged elections that the Castro brothers try to foist off as true democracy."

George Bush, in his own person, is the single best argument against both intelligent design and an active and participant God of Justice.

I mean this quite seriously; this is the sort of thing that causes people to loose their faith - or at least, put the greater part of their faith into causes and ideals with more immediate payoffs.

After all, if there were such a god as the followers of Bush proclaim - the thirty-percenters, the name-it-claim it fringe of the ignorant, the stupid and the magical thinkers, Bush would have been incinerated by a bolt of divine lightning as he uttered these words.

On the other hand, were that the case, we'd pretty much have to live with the idea of the Divine Right of Kings, so I suppose it's a wash. Not to mention being a huge relief to personal security personnel the world over.

Still, when a Bush says they want to "help the people realize the blessings of liberty," everyone else hears a chorus of "Freedom's just another word for nothing left to lose." Cue visuals of jumping rubble, bread lines and starving children with huge eyes.

OMG. Hilarious. Especially the references to evidence against intelligent design and divine bolts of lightening.

Then again, Bush knows how great Democracy is. I mean, we have the wonderful Superdelegate system which undermines the collective popular vote in the primaries. Then papa Electoral College takes over for the general election.

We have big business taking a dump on the economy (to which Bush is clearly a recipient of the benefits). And oh yeah. Government in bed with pharmaceutical companies to keep us sick and keep them all paid.

I'd just looooove to hear a subsequent speech from him on "freedom" and "democracy." (Yeah, right. Just about as much as I would like to be swinging from a pole nearby when the divine bolt of lightening finally does come).

I wouldn't live anywhere else, but I'm not smiling over Bush wearing the "Democracy" t-shirt, either. It's not his color, especially as he wore it in response to the new news in Cuba.
