Once the American Idol election frenzy dies down and we wake up from the nightmare of the last eight years and look around at the pile of shit we are neck deep in thanks to George “the Torturer ” Bush and his magical destructo administration, there will be only one conclusion possible. We need to build a new reality. We need to select a new world track. We need to create a new future.
Nothing and no one could have done a better job of proving the old world track we were going down just plain didn’t work.
Nothing and no one could have done a better job of proving that an economy based solely on further enriching the already super-rich is bad for everyone BUT the super-rich.
Nothing and no one could have done a better job of decimating the world destroying American Military and Economic Empire. Of, perhaps, ending the entire concept of Nation State Empires.
Nothing and no one could have done a better job of exposing (by arousing it fully) the hate and intolerance of Right Wing America.
Nothing and no one could have done a better job of demonstrating the hypocrisy of a supposed Republican Moral Superiority by indulging the Right Wing’s authoritarian and fascist tendencies, from domestic spying to Abu Ghraib and Guantanamo.
Nothing and no one could have done a better job of discrediting and destroying every single meme, policy, philosophy, idea and talking point of Republicanism.
America’s Right Wing has been by far the biggest obstacle to true world change. America’s Conservative movement, had it laid just a bit lower, had it not selected George Bush and his henchmen as it’s incompetent champion, had it not been exposed by George Bush for the selfish, delusional, raving lunacy that it truly is, could have lain in the weeds and sabotaged every attempt at building the new world we so desperately need.
Conservatism – whatever it advertises on the box or promises from the pulpit – is a cult of rich and powerful solipsists deciding that any rules they make up for themselves are OK as long as it makes them a fat profit and that rest of humanity are merely expendable extras in their awesome, members-only circle jerk.
George Bush has exposed the truth about the Right Wing and the Conservative Movement in a way that an outsider could never have done.
It won’t sink in to the collective consciousness until we can look back from outside the nightmare to see what these irredeemable idiot ideologues have truly wrought. But soon, when the world regains its sanity, whenever the Conservative Movement dares open it’s mouth to preach to us of it’s righteousness, the world can look back at the Bush years….and tell them to STFU.
Thank you George Bush, through your brutality, hubris, and gross incompetence, you have quite unintentionally done a great service to the world.
Now…. let’s put this war criminal in the dock at The Hague as he SO richly deserves, so we can get on with building a new world from the ashes of the old one he and his cronies have almost thoroughly destroyed.
