It seems as if it has been a while since I wrote anything political (refreshing, yes?), so I would just like to say, in the spirit of fairness and equality, that I read Richard Roeper’s column today and like what a reader wrote in to say. The question was, what should W. Bush do with himself after he leaves office:
“Three hundred and sixty-five days a year, in the wind and snow of winter and the heat and humidity of summer, let him tend to the graves of the almost 4,000 men and women who have given their lives in the debacle of Iraq. They honored their oaths, obeyed their commander-in-chief and sacrificed their lives of promise to a lying, unprincipled warmonger.
“He can begin at the grave of my grandson, Lcpl Jonathan W. Collins, killed in action on 8/8/2004.”
Of course, we know what Mr. Bush plans on doing for real: “I’ll give some speeches, to replenish the ol’ coffers.” While Jimmy Carter, Bush Sr. and Bill Clinton work to repair our reputation and rebuild lives and homes, W. has the bank account to tend to, that lousy piece of shit.
