Just In Case You Missed It
Michael Moore Nails Bush (again)

Friday, September 2nd, 2005

Dear Mr. Bush:

Any idea where all our helicopters are? It's Day 5 of Hurricane Katrina and thousands remain stranded in New Orleans and need to be airlifted. Where on earth could you have misplaced all our military choppers? Do you need help finding them? I once lost my car in a Sears parking lot. Man, was that a drag.

Also, any idea where all our national guard soldiers are? We could really use them right now for the type of thing they signed up to do like helping with national disasters. How come they weren't there to begin with?

Last Thursday I was in south Florida and sat outside while the eye of Hurricane Katrina passed over my head. It was only a Category 1 then but it was pretty nasty. Eleven people died and, as of today, there were still homes without power. That night the weatherman said this storm was on its way to New Orleans. That was Thursday! Did anybody tell you? I know you didn't want to interrupt your vacation and I know how you don't like to get bad news. Plus, you had fundraisers to go to and mothers of dead soldiers to ignore and smear. You sure showed her!

I especially like how, the day after the hurricane, instead of flying to Louisiana, you flew to San Diego to party with your business peeps. Don't let people criticize you for this -- after all, the hurricane was over and what the heck could you do, put your finger in the dike?

And don't listen to those who, in the coming days, will reveal how you specifically reduced the Army Corps of Engineers' budget for New Orleans this summer for the third year in a row. You just tell them that even if you hadn't cut the money to fix those levees, there weren't going to be any Army engineers to fix them anyway because you had a much more important construction job for them -- BUILDING DEMOCRACY IN IRAQ!

On Day 3, when you finally left your vacation home, I have to say I was moved by how you had your Air Force One pilot descend from the clouds as you flew over New Orleans so you could catch a quick look of the disaster. Hey, I know you couldn't stop and grab a bullhorn and stand on some rubble and act like a commander in chief. Been there done that.

There will be those who will try to politicize this tragedy and try to use it against you. Just have your people keep pointing that out. Respond to nothing. Even those pesky scientists who predicted this would happen because the water in the Gulf of Mexico is getting hotter and hotter making a storm like this inevitable. Ignore them and all their global warming Chicken Littles. There is nothing unusual about a hurricane that was so wide it would be like having one F-4 tornado that stretched from New York to Cleveland.

No, Mr. Bush, you just stay the course. It's not your fault that 30 percent of New Orleans lives in poverty or that tens of thousands had no transportation to get out of town. C'mon, they're black! I mean, it's not like this happened to Kennebunkport. Can you imagine leaving white people on their roofs for five days? Don't make me laugh! Race has nothing -- NOTHING -- to do with this!

You hang in there, Mr. Bush. Just try to find a few of our Army helicopters and send them there. Pretend the people of New Orleans and the Gulf Coast are near Tikrit.

Yours,

Michael Moore

Very well put, Mr. Moore.

Thanks, Karen. As usual, BULLSEYE!

Now watch:
As the chronic vacationing buffoon faces more and more criticism for his callous disregard for the safety and rescue of hundreds of thousands of AMERICANS, his trainers will all say it's just political backbiting from the left.
That pudgy, closet cocksucker Scott McClellan has already said it.
New Orleans doesn't count to Bush and his band of white male chickenhawks. Too many nigras up in there.
And his token darkie Condi Rice was seen yesterday shopping for shoes in NYC. When an outraged customer asked her how she could be so fucking callous, Condi had security remove the woman.

Kate said...

I hope the woman removed got in a good spitwad, landing on said new shoes.

No wonder this sadministration considers Michael Moore a domestic terrorist threat, he tells the truth.

And that stings. Sometimes it even leaves a mark.

Karen Zipdrive said...

If only a few spineless Democratic senators and Congress reps would step forward and telling the damn truth.

One good point JimBob made on the phone with me today- at least the southern Black vote won't keep drifting toward the right now that Bush has reminded them that their rescue and survival don't deserve immediate response from the rich whitey-whites in Bushland.

Bush and his congress managed to convene their lazy asses real fast on a Sunday to try to keep Teri Shiavo (one of among 35,000 in her same vegetative state) from being unplugged. But for tens of thousands of mainly poor black folks dead and dying it took severeal (too many) days to get together to do something.

Bush left his vacation several days early for the photo op to sign the bill for Teri Shiavo, but he only cut his most recent vacation short a few hours to go stand in front of cameras hugging survivors and slapping pieces of bread into their hands.

Look at the abject poverty these American citizens live in - too poor to even run away from danger.

Now Bush is begging us to donate money (that he took away) for the hurricane disaster while he's pouring our US dollars into force feeding "democracy" on people that hate our guts.

What the hell is wrong with this picture?

I'm too disgusted and fed up with that ass to say anything witty. Feh.

Karen Zipdrive said...

For Bush to have the balls to self rightiously say he expected ordinary citizens to chip in on New Orleans relief made me want to projectile vomit.
He pisses off mega billions on that shithole Iraq and backdoor drafts our NATIONAL Guard troops to take military gear designated specifically for stateside use over there to be blown to smithereens, then looks into the camera like a cocker spaniel hearing a shrill noise and expects us to buy the horseshit he spews.
"America will be a better place after this tragedy is all settled,"he said.
I've seen deeper platitudes on off- brand greeting cards.
I've decided the worst combination of bad character traits are arrogance mixed with stupidy, wrapped in disingenuous cliches, delivered in a quasi authoritative tone with facial expressions dripping with mock concern.

Stupid I can forgive, but this bastard is stupid, mean spirited and evil.

Face it- Lord Voldemort is running our country- and his goon squad are all Malfoys.

woohoo, my neighbor just went to get some gas in her car and came right back when she saw the price!! wow. Can Bush and his oil buddies be this incredibly lucky to have horrible things like Katrina happen and it just makes them richer and filthy richer? So I guess there was good reason not to put the pressure on congress to meet and to stay on vacation as long as possible.

Karen Zipdrive said...

I am nearing the point where I want to invest in a good siphon and a crowbar, go to San Antonio's more trendy movie theatres and start getting my gas from parked Hummers and other gas guzzling hogs designed for men with tiny penises.
As for those huge SUV's with those creepy W stickers- we all need to slap WTF? stickers over them.
Liberals are too polite.
We should do a pay pal collection on all liberal Blogs and send some rocket launchers and ammo to Camp Casey.

biggsis said...

I agree Karen. And just to show what a bullshitter he is, just wait until these poorer than poor people who've lost the pots they piss in try to get relief by filing bankruptcy after Oct 17th. Bush and his rich law-making buddies have made sure these types of "deadbeats" will owe their creditors for the rest of their miserable lives.

Karen Zipdrive said...

I am loving the news footage of angry as hell Gulf Coast victims of Katrina calling Bush what he is: a no-account, dimwitted racist who abundantly proved he could care less about them po' stranded black folks who've lost everything and have no where to go.
Bush is a heartless little punk ass bitch. What more do these GOP lemmings need to see of him before they just admit they backed a brain damaged, rich frat boy with a creepy daddy complex and a cold, butchdyke for a mama?
Goddamn, I wish the Bush family would work out their sicko family issues on each other instead of the American people.
Bush is to leadership as Jerry Springer is to PBS.
