The Democrats need to have a talk with Lakers coach Phil Jackson about how to treat an opponent you've got reeling.
Phil will tell them what he taught Michael Jordan back in the Chicago Bull championship days.
"Step on their throats."
When you've got the bad guy down, don't back off and let him catch his breath, pull himself to his feet and get back in the game. When you've got him down, step on his throat. Keep him down and choke off his breath and biggest artery. Literally go for the jugular.
And that's exactly what Democrats and all those who oppose the stain on our national character that is George W Bush, must do. The beast is finally down and wounded. This is no time to let up, now is time to pour it on. With no mercy. Using nothing but one truth after another fired like a lethal fusillade of reality bullets.
The president and every single person under his command has been guilty of nothing short of malfeasance. "Inept" is far too benign a word to use to describe what is really criminal behavior and standards. Go ahead and look up "malfeasance" in the dictionary. You know The Angry Buddhist did. You'll find out it's defined as: "Misconduct or wrongdoing, especially by a public official."
See, there are real specific words to describe what we've been seeing and we should use them over and over again.
WHAT IF IT WERE CLINTON?
If John Kerry had been elected instead of having been smeared and character assassinated by still not out of the closet Karl Rove... Or Al Gore had not had his votes stolen from him and the winner of the 2000 election was the one who got to take office. What kind of vicious and ugly things would the Republicans be saying now? Would they be beating the Democrats bloody and battered if they had simply done exactly the same thing Bush and his gang of destruction have done?
Would they not only be politicizing the hell out of this but using it to raise money and whip up religious fanatics as well?
You know damn well they would. Karl Rove would be masterminding whisper campaigns, direct mail hit pieces, and using every other Lee Atwater scorched earth tactic to make sure EVERYONE know who was to blame here and remembered it on election day.
Here's a very creative take on what Rush himself would be saying:
CLICK HERE AND READ ME.
And if you think that the Democrats should rise above that kind of behavior, that they should operate at a higher standard and set a better example then I'm sure you also enjoy rug burns, reality shows and retrieving the soap at the SuperDome refuge center.
Time to get real people, time to learn the lesson that getting punched in the face repeatedly by a bully is supposed to teach you. It's time to set these mother fuckers on fire and then hose them down with gasoline.
Are you feeling me yet?
GASOLINE FREE OF CHARGE - BUSH BUDDIES BIGGEST LOOTERS OF ALL
It's not like you have to look hard for the necessary flammables. Just pick up a newspaper. This was on the very last page of today's L.A. Times this morning. Not everyone has the patience your Angry Buddhist does to get that far:
Do you love it? The bodies are still floating and bloating but Cheney's pals already got their half billion worth of work. These are the very same jarheads ripping us off in Iraq who profit most when people suffer most.IN BRIEF/WASHINGTON, D.C.A Halliburton Co. subsidiary that has come under fire for its reconstruction work in Iraq has begun tapping a $500 million Navy contract to do emergency repairs at naval facilities on the Gulf Coast that were battered by Hurricane Katrina. The subsidiary, Kellogg, Brown & Root of Arlington, Va., was awarded the competitive bid contract last July to provide debris removal and other emergency work associated with natural disasters. KBR will do work at Naval Air Station Pascagoula, Naval Station Gulfport and Stennis Space Center in Mississippi and elsewhere.
9-11, 9-11, 9-11, 9-11!
9-11 is next Sunday. 9-11, the best thing that ever happened to George Bush in his entire life. The seminal opportunity he seized like a rat grabs his cheese. He rode the deaths of all those people in New York like a camel jockey, whipping up a frenzy to ram an unrelated, greed based agenda down the throats of people before they could stop crying or catch their breath.
Where the fuck is Osama Bin Laden? Didn't President Bush get on a bullhorn and promise people at ground zero that he would bring the people who destroyed the twin towers to justice?
What kind of Rainman would you have to be next Sunday, 4 years later, if you felt one iota safer, more protected or better cared for by those you elect and entrust with our life and death responsibilities.
MRS. BUTTERWORTH FUCKS UP TOO
I admit it. I always thought Barbara Bush, the President's mommy, was either a nasty drag queen or the role model for the Angela Lansberry character in the Manchurian Candidate. It always seemed clear that she was one of those rich people who believe they are some kind of royalty and better than other people. I think the media gave her a free pass for years and so you haven't had the chance to see her true Cruella De Ville self.
But yesterday she showed us a glimpse of the kind of bloodlines that yield a George W from one's loins. She toured the Astrodome in Houston and let some refugees kiss her pearls.
Barbara Bush said: "Almost everyone I've talked to says we're going to move to Houston." Then she added: "What I'm hearing is they all want to stay in Texas. Everyone is so overwhelmed by the hospitality. "And so many of the people in the arena here, you know, were underprivileged anyway, so this--this (she chuckles slightly) is working very well for them."Read it here.
IF YOU WANT TO KNOW WHY I THINK JOHN ROBERTS IS A DANGEROUS DICK...
The Angry Buddhist would first like to help remind you of just what a no class cretin William Rehnquist was. He was an evil, hateful bastard and he did far more harm than any good in his miserable excuse for a life. We should all be dancing a jig now that he's taking the big dirt nap. America will be better off with this pompous putz dead... so long as one of his brothers in evil doesn't take his place.
A pathetic creep for many decades, Rehnquist began his "career" as a GOP operative by harassing black voters during the 1964 presidential election. Remember� He left a lengthy paper trail of his pro-segregation ideology as an assistant attorney general in the Nixon administration -- attempting to limit and disrupt the landmark desegregation case Brown v. Board of Education.
Having thus proved himself "reliable," Rehnquist was appointed to the Supreme Court by Republican superstar, Richard Nixon. And reliable he has been -- so reliable, in fact, that he was appointed chief justice by an admiring Ronald Reagan (himself no stranger to playing the "Welfare Queen" race card as your Angry Buddhist has reminded you). Rehnquist's consistent "states rights" judgments (including his grossly inconsistent vote in Bush v. Gore) on the Supreme Court prove just how predictably "reliable" he has been. Could this man be trusted to interpret the law fairly? No he could not. He proved it every day he sat on the court. As a person he was a total shit.
Bush has nominated John Roberts, because he's counting on this new creep following in the footsteps of his judicial idol, Rehnquist, who he clerked for and worshipped. If he wasn't sure he had the right henchman, he wouldn't have nominated him as his #1 choice.
He doesn't believe in equal rights. He's a racist and he wants government to screw people not help people. There's no way he should get to serve on the Supremes, let alone be the head don.
Need more convincing that he was truly a harmful scumbag? Read these:
Then speak up and speak out. Put on you big hiking boots for some thoat stepping, baby!
ANYONE SEEN THE DEMOCRATS BALLS?
If ever there was a time for a Democrat to step up, make a name for themselves, and run with the flag, it was about five days ago. I haven't even heard anything out of Barbara Boxer or Diane Fienstein yet. What the hell have they been waiting for? Where the fuck is the leadership? Even Howard Dean is playing way too nice.
They are so timid, and so beat, and so spooked they don't even know when there is blood in the water or what to do about it. We need more than just an intellectual argument. The Democrats could take all the charisma of everyone they have in national office, stuff that into the navel of a nanoflea and still have room for George Bush's integrity.
It's time for somebody to raise their voice and keep it at a loud level. Sure, Senator Mary Landrieu said she'd like to punch Bush in the face on Sunday doing helicopteror tour with George Stephinaphulus on ABC, but she also cried like a baby. Who could blame her?
The Mayor of New Orleans talked some talk a couple of times, but he doesn't seem to have the legs to go the distance. Besides, he's black which means half the white people in America won't listen to anything he has to say.
If John Edwards were really the voice of the Southern Common Man he would have seized this moment and been down there with a big boat evacuating people.
If John Kerry had an ounce of imagination he'd get himself a vintage Swift Boat, gather his fellow boatmates and motor down the New Orleans waterways to rescue people like he did in Vietnam when he was a hero and George Bush was on the down low in Alabama. And by the low down I mean the down Oprah style.
Just who the hell is the Democrat's version of Lee Atwater or Karl Rove? Does it take an Angry Buddhist to tell them how to fight a street fight? I will if I have to.
PRAISING NIGGERS AND HO'S OKAY - BAD MOUTHING BUSH CENSORED
Current rap flavor of the month, Kayne West, appeared as one of the segment hosts of the big hurricane relief telethon the NBC owned networks did a couple of days ago. West had this to say:
"I hate the way they portray us in the media. You see a black family, it says, "They're looting." You see a white family, it says, "They're looking for food." And, you know, it's been five days [waiting for federal help] because most of the people are black. And even for me to complain about it, I would be a hypocrite because I've tried to turn away from the TV because it's too hard to watch. I've even been shopping before even giving a donation, so now I'm calling my business manager right now to see what is the biggest amount I can give, and just to imagine if I was down there, and those are my people down there. So anybody out there that wants to do anything that we can help -- with the way America is set up to help the poor, the black people, the less well-off, as slow as possible. I mean, the Red Cross is doing everything they can. We already realize a lot of people that could help are at war right now, fighting another way -- and they've given them permission to go down and shoot us!But you'd have to have watched the live feed on the West Cost to hear the rant the way it was laid down. Because here on the West Coast NBC edited out the lines they found objectionable - most pointedly the line about Bush. That goddamn liberal media gets us every time, don't it? No criticism of the President is allowed.
George Bush doesn't care about black people!"
Ain't freedom a wonderful thing? Won't it be great to actually have some freedom?
THE PERFECT STORM?
See? It's HARD WORK telling it like it is. It's not easy. You've got to miss sleep and work really, really hard. But it's worth it and we've got to keep doing it because the timing has never been better.
First we've got the Confederacy of Dunces response to the hurricane aftermath. (For the illuminati among you enjoy the geographically correct literay reference.)
Right alongside that we've got the George Bush Hallmark Hall of Fame Presentation of "Iraq - Because I Said So" That's what helped his approval numbers to finally go south before the hurricane ever hit the Gulf Coast.
You've just got to love the numbers today...
Just 28% of Americans give say that the federal government has done a good or an excellent job responding to Hurricane Katrina. Another 25% say the government has done a fair job while 45% say poor.
Interest in the story is extraordinarily high. Eighty-eight percent (88%) of Americans say they are closely following news stories about the tragedy, including 59% who are following it "very closely."
Your Angry Buddhist says now is the time to take advantage of both those low rating numbers and those high interest levels in the story.
Because next week when the 9-11 anniversary rolls around and America cynically wonders how much better off we are now, those Bush numbers can sink even further.
GUESS WHAT TIME IT IS?
And then get what's coming the week after that? It will be the report from the Special Proscecutor, Fitzgerald on just how many traitorous rats are running round the Bush White House maze?
Who will be indicted? Do we get to see Karl Rove on a perp walk? Scooter Libby? Anyone else? The President is the man responsible. When do we get to see HIM in handcuffs?
September is going to be a very bad month for Bush, conservatives and the Republican party.
But you've got to do YOUR part. You've got to kick them when they're down and get your friends to do likewise. You've got to step on their throat and choke off their airflow. Don't feel bad about it, they've already been brain dead for years.
The Zen Master would approve.
