Wake Up Sheeple!

Fast Times with Bushie logic. How many reason have we had for going to war in Iraq so far? The latest [I talked about it earlier this week] “Bush’s great big pile of shit in Iraq” strategy, or as some are calling it the “Fly paper” strategy, you know the one about bringing the battle to the terrorists so we don’t have to fight them here. In either case the terrorists are like flies that we are luring into Iraq to kill them. If the London bombing proved anything it is that this strategy is badly flawed. Not all terrorists are falling for the trap, they are worldwide, and can strike anywhere. As I keep saying, the more terrorists that you kill the more you create. At the same time the Bushies are still telling us that they are turning Iraq in to a bastion of freedom and democracy, a shining example for the Middle East. So my question is how can you create a terrorist battleground, while at the same time having this glorious democratic Iraq, don’t the two fly in the face of each other? Of course they do, but as usual the Bushies are talking out of both sides of their mouths and the sheepole eat it up. This whole contradiction got me thinking of an analogy to one of my all time favorite movies “Fast Times At Ridgemont High,” staring that hated liberal Sean Penn. In the movie Sean Penn’s character Jeff Spicoli is recklessly driving football star Charles Jefferson’s car with Jefferson’s little brother, of course he wrecks it, and here is the ensuing dialogue:

Jefferson's Brother:
My brother's gonna kill us! He's gonna kill us! He's gonna kill you and he's gonna kill me, he's gonna kill us!

Jeff Spicoli:
Hey man, just be glad I had fast reflexes!

Jefferson's Brother:
My brother's gonna shit!

Jeff Spicoli:
Make up your mind, dude, is he gonna shit or is he gonna kill us?

Jefferson's Brother:
First he's gonna shit, then he's gonna kill us!

Jeff Spicoli:
Relax, alright? My old man is a television repairman, he's got this ultimate set of tools. I can fix it.

The analogy being, Spicoli represents thinking intelligent Americans [albiet not stoned like Spicoli], while Jefferson’s little brother represents a highly excited Bushie, Intelligent informed Americans are asking, “Hey dudes, Is it a terrorist battleground, or is it a shining Democracy” Oh, and by the way what about bin Laden, WMD’s, and all those other reasons, which is it? The reasons keep changing so fast that my head is spinning!

  • If you analogy holds true, at least we'll have a happy ending and a good time celebrating it.

    Here's hoping!

  • Unfortunately..it does seem like we're living with a government who's brightest member is Jeff Spicoli.

    Nice post.
