When will Bush ever learns?

With his foreign and domestic policies a total failure, George W. Bush's sole purpose now is to provide fodder for comedians.

Speaking in defense of his No Child Left Behind program this week in Washington, Bush uttered the words, "Childrens do learn". Apparently, Bush is a child who has been left behind.

Bush is not the only person in his administration acting like an undereducated child. Right before Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's speech at the UN Tuesday, the US delegation got up and walked out, apparently not smart or mature enough to understand the definition of diplomacy. Walking out during another country's speech is so totally a high school move. Will US diplomats short sheet Ahmadinejad's bed the next time he's in town?

Ahmadinejad was allowed to speak at Columbia University, but had to follow the worst introduction a speaker could get. Columbia President Lee Bollinger said that Ahmadinejad was a cruel, petty dictator, who lacked the courage and integrity to answer questions honestly. That's tough to follow, and I should know, since I got that same intro once at The Comic Strip.
Whatever happened to ,"Please give our next speaker the courtesy and attention you would want for yourself?" I can imagine how Lee Bollinger, who teaches a course in Freedom of Speech at Columbia, treats his students. "Before you give me the answer to that question, let me just say that I'm sure your response will be wildly off-base, and I think that you have no prospects whatsoever for ever succeeding in life. OK, what's your answer?" Bollinger should be forced to take Civility 101 before he's allowed to do another introduction.

Ahmadinejad was compared with, you guessed it, Hitler in an ad by a right-wing Jewish group. Comparing him to Hitler trivializes what Hitler did. Years ago, I heard someone say that George Steinbrenner, owner of the Yankees, was a Nazi because he kept firing managers. Yes, that's what the Nazis were known for, those constant managerial changes.

John McCain said he would be more comfortable with a Christian President, since the Constitution says the US was founded as a Christian nation. I guess separation of Church and State is about as popular today as civility.

Jesus would be pretty appalled to have John McCain taking his name in vain, since McCain was one of the "major" Republican Presidential candidates who skipped a debate dealing with minority issues and featuring black and Hispanic journalists. Jesus cared about the poor and the powerless. John McCain, Rudolph Giuliani, Mitt Romney and Fred Thompson think the poor and the powerless are Democratic voters who should be ignored.

When viewers on Fox News were asked who won the debate, they chose the four empty podiums. The loser, once again, was the rest of us.

Thanks for sending your blog to me.
I'm what is known as a reactive writer.
I can't come up with anything original on my own but if i read someone else's ideas I can respond well...or is it "good"?

Have you noticed no '08 candidate has asked for Georgie Boy's endorsement.
No childrens will be left behind...except George Dubya.

And by the way...normaly I hate the NY Post's abbreviation for Politician's headlines but I do love Dubya ("W").

Rambling on...
I take that back. I love the NY Post's abbreviations for politician's names. The FONZ abbreviation was used often a few year's back for Alfonse D'mato. I can't tell you how many times I lurched forward with my Post on the subway thinking Henry Winkler had gone into politics...which I actually think he has by now. (FYI-it wasn't my NY POST. I found it on the seat next to me).
Yeah, riiiiiiiiiiiiiight!

scotty, you are right on with your comments on steinbrenner. please note, however, that ahmad.... has called for the destruction of the jewish state, is a denier of the holacaust (which must be considered either brazenly provocative or incredibely uneducated) and dismisses the existence of the iranian gay community which his regime has actively persecuted. now that's begining to sound a little bit like adolf hitler don't you think?

What's next, short sheeting the bed? That made me laugh out loud. I couldn't agree more. Until all these boys stop acting like spoiled children, we won't get anywhere.
