In the government, so often nothing gets done, thus, we will nickname the government and its politics "pointless politics." "plastic cup politics" on the other hand get things done. Even though they're done out of drunkery, they can accomplish a task, be it streaking or knocking over mail-boxes. I think we should replace our elected politicians with the man (or woman) at the bar with the highest blood alcohol level. I guess we wouldn't really replace Bush, just give him a keg, he'll fit in.

Ace in the hole.

Funny. I was thinking something more along the lines of crack.

Or are you making an allusion to Marx?

You obviously don't no much about what's going on in the government. The person in the bar with the highest alcohol level is most likely to be a politician. And Bush doesn't need drugs to make him stupid.

No, but the drugs tell him to listen to his advisors. I'm not sure if that's better or worse. . .

Without the medication, he might stop listening to the advisors, and start listening to 'The Voices'. [cry baby]

Well, the worst the voices could be telling him to dd would be to start more wars; what do you think his advisors are telling him?

They're probably not telling him to make war on my country, my government are so far up Dubyas posterior, they can see what he had for breakfast.

meanwhile, the voices whisper to him
pretty red button....
nice red button....
precious red button......
it's your birthday present.....
the button wants you to press it, yessssss......

Hey, it can't be much worse than Reagan (and it just had to be Reagan) asking where the war room was.

Honestly though, do you think they let President Bush anywhere near the big red button? Of course not. I'm sure that Clinton's last order as president was to have the NSA install a fake red button on the desk in the Oval Office. You know, in the interests of national security and all that.
