He's There For Terri

Terri Schiavo passed away this morning. Hours later President Bush went live with a message of sympathy. He took over a week to mention the shooting at the Indian Reservation. He takes five weeks of vacation every five weeks it seems. He'll probably never talk about a fallen soldier by name. He avoids press conferences and has had the fewest of any sitting President. He hates the press. But he loves Terri. "The essence of civilisation is that the strong have a duty to protect the weak," he says. So where has he put the essence of our civilization? In his bank account. Sorry if you're weak, the rich vote for him. I used to think that like lemmings, the rich would follow him over the cliff of our countries collapse. But I'm beginning to think that as the GOP continues to reveal how deep their corruption is, the followers will break ranks. If nothing else, than for self protection.

There's something happening here.....

No people ever recognize their dictator in advance. He never stands for election on the platform of dictatorship. He always represents himself as the instrument [of] the Incorporated National Will. ... When our dictator turns up you can depend on it that he will be one of the boys, and he will stand for everything traditionally American. And nobody will ever say 'Heil' to him, nor will they call him 'Fuhrer' or 'Duce.' But they will greet him with one great big, universal, democratic, sheeplike bleat of 'O.K., Chief! Fix it like you wanna, Chief! Oh Kaaaay!'" -- Dorothy Thompson, 1935
