Greetings and salutations from the sand, sun and surf of Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard and the great island of Nantucket! Great to be with you, a little late this morning, on this very windy, rainy, foggy day here on Cape Cod proper, Osterville to be precise, hence the delay in today’s most important commentary, bidding you and yours a fair and fine adieu… My great thanks to the GOD of reason and LOVE for the return of my friend, and yours, Keith, “I’d do it again tomorrow”, Olbermann, of the venerated and most excellent show, “Countdown, with Keith Olbermann”, airing every week night at 8 and 11 pm, EST, only on MSNBC, whose triumphant return brought much JOY to Christmas town, a place where reason, good manners and grace are open 24/7/365… Welcome HOME Keith! Ah, the members of REPUBLICORP, will you ever step out from the dark cave of hate, paranoia and deception? To quote our good friends on the right (wrong) side of the equation, “The American People, The American People, The American People…”, Marsha, Marsha, Marsha! The more I think about it, I could see Mitch, “the mouse”, McConnell (R-KY) and still the minority leader in the Senate, performing a cross-dressing act, courtesy of Michael Palin, the late great Graham Chapman, Eric Idol and the classically trained English acting of John Cleese of Monty Python’s Flying Circus, where he takes on the role of the sad, misunderstood, middle child of the Brady clan, from the 1970’s television series, “The Brady Bunch”, Jan Brady, who just couldn’t seem to get that resentment of her older and wiser sister out of her rather dimly lit head, and much like our other pal Michelle Bachman, whose head is actually filled with helium, bringing her to the low level of a screaming six year old who wants what she wants when she wants it, just doesn’t seem to get that the gig is up, WE KNOW WHAT YOU ARE UP TO, and, in the immortal words of George W. Bush, “Fool me once, shame on you, fool me twice, well, you just can’t get fooled again…” That should, in all fairness to you Mr. President, should have been your opening line as you ask Jesus, who you claim to have a personal relationship with, for forgiveness for creating so many horrible things that went WRONG with this country under your “leadership”, the most costly being the IRAQ LIE…where over 4400 American soldiers lost their lives along with 80,000 Iraqi civilians, with the one’s that are still alive, living in third world conditions, as so many live without electricity or clean drinking water–”how’s that bringin’ freedom and democracy to the middle east workin’ out for ya!?” As the nation has now watched our former President appear on 7 different “talk shows”, Oprah being the most credible, thus far, in an exhausting defence his “leadership” decisions during his eight years of horror, I felt as if I were watching a re-run of Hogan’s Heroes, for the demeanor and friendly personality of “W” seemed enough to give him a pass, for the moment, on all of the torture and high war crimes that he, his boss, “Dick” Cheney and the rest of the motley crew executed during the first few years of this new century of human existence on planet earth–all in the name of the UNITED STATES of AMERICA and her real people… Lawrence O’Donnell, of the great show, “The Last Word, with Lawrence O’Donnell”, airing, again, only on MSNBC, at 10 pm and 1 am, had, as his guest on last night’s show, retired Brigadier General Janis Karpinski, who said this of Bush’s lack of an explanation as to the goings on at the secret prison, Abu Ghraib and the humiliation the United States felt after it was revealed to the WORLD the specifics of prisoner abuse, by the United States, which was rampant and abhorrent. “I was flabbergasted, when I saw portions of the interview on the television last evening. I couldn’t watch it, it was so annoying, it’s just infuriating…” O’Donnell, “Is he pretending not to know things about Abu Ghraib that he does?” Karpinski, “Absolutely, maybe his ignorance is showing now, maybe the people who surrounded him already knew the details of Abu Ghraib, and didn’t share it with him, and he didn’t want to share them, his objective may have been different from there’s…yet, he justifies the technique of water boarding, he minimizes it to only 9 prisoners…” One of whom we water boarded over 180 times… To quote Mr. Bush, “I asked experts of our legal team, are these legal? (waterboarding) They said yes, they are, and I said, USE ‘EM.” When you cozy up to your coach and listen to the docile, aging former president sit on Oprah Winfrey’s nice, pale yellow leather chairs on a peaceful day in November and look at the smiling, relaxed man speak of his Presidency, or the lack therein, in a passive aggressive defensive manner, it can’t help but bring up issues of the past–implying that we know what we are doing and if you are a “real American” you will follow suit, or we will label you as a commy, liberal tree hugger who probably supports DADT…” When you listen once again to that vile hor$eshit, you will come to realize the one central, lasting gift of George “W” Bush– WE DON’T HAVE TO LISTEN to YOU anymore! He has come out of the wood work as a kind of blessing, to once again prove to the world just how crazy these republican robots really ARE and what they plan to do to the rest of the country once they are back in power–nothing changes if nothing changes and brother, take my word for it, these men of the BUSH/REAGAN era, i.e the the new REPUBLICORP, have regressed even further than old W and have grand and scary plans that have nothing in the world to do with the said, ad nauseum, “AMERICAN PEOPLE”… Have a great day everybody! PRESERVE THE WILDERNESS! Peace~M
