Pissing on Firecrackers

Imagine if you will (said with my best Twilight Zone, Rod Serling, voice) a very long string of connected firecrackers. On either side of these firecrackers is a line of people composed of diehard Republicans for bush. There is Scooter and Karl and Cheney and all the gang of outlaws. Someone sneaked in and lit the first firecracker and now as the little explosions continue down the line, each person standing by tries to piss on them to try to stop the advancing explosions. Why are they trying to stop the advance? They know that someone has his wrists tied to the final firecracker and they know that person is george bush.

Mary Matalin was on Imus’ show this morning and she said that Scooter didn’t lie, he just “disremembered.” Maybe I’m just in the holiday spirit (no, not the adult beverage spirit), but I thought that was funny as hell. To hear Mary talk about Scooter you would think he was being considered for sainthood rather than being indicted for a felony. Mary threw her little cup of urine on the firecrackers.

Yesterday, Rumsfeld was all over the TV. His silly face kept popping up on every channel. I don’t know if he made it to QVC or not. He too was armed with a cup of urine and just like Mary, he missed his target and the fireworks continued to pop.

By the way, who was it that ignited the first firecracker? Was it Fitzgerald? Was it Rep Murtha? Maybe it was the American people. All we know for sure is something started the fire and it continues to burn and pop.

If this were a movie it might be great to watch and highly entertaining. You see in movies no one really dies. In our reality of this novel time, so so many people have died. What we are watching is the comedy of a tragedy.

While it is fun to watch the gang try to stop the fireworks, it’s so sad that no one is mentioning the deaths. They are so busy trying to convince us that they have done nothing wrong. I guess they think we “disremember” what they told us before they declared we must go to war. We don’t.

The only result we see of the urine tossing is that they are stinking up the place and it’s too late to stop the firecrackers. They are so busy pissing on the firecrackers and trying to cover their own asses because they know that no one can untie that final firecracker.
