Ol' Weepy



Sure, a day after you've spent two hours discussing your own mother's deteriorating mental condition with her doctor is not exactly the time you want to be making fun of some elderly gent's embarrassing public breakdown, but so help me the first thing that crossed my mind was "You'd better be crying for the rest of us and not yourself there, old man." And the second was, "Of all the families in the United States of America, how did this one become a dynasty?"

Matters were not helped when the Bush family biographer, whose name I've forgotten, noted on Olbermann that Jeb was considered the intellect of the family. Athough this was mitigated a bit later when he noted that the Bush name was now so radioactive that "[Jeb Jr.] won't be able to run for dog catcher."

Let's hope. And yeah, that was more or less my first thought too. Jesus, people, what did you inflict on the world?

Has Skynet made Terminators yet?

I always figured that, if we're going to have a dynasty, can't we at least make it a decent family, not a bunch of immoral bumblers, users and crime lords like the Bushes?

But then, if you're really decent you know that you can't have a dynasty in a democracy ... so, never mind.

Ha. Americans are stupider than that. Americans have shorter memories than that. Americans vote for brands. Americans vote for nostalgia.

If I can't get decency in my dynasty, I'd at least like competence.

Nice tears, but tell it to someone who still retains the power to give a shit.

What else can you expect from a family that made its bones as the American bankers for the Nazis?
