Let it hereby be noted:

I hate how our president creates words.
Literally creates them, out of whole cloth.
If we are referring to Middle Eastern terrorists as 'Islamists', can I start referring to the neo-fascist wing of the Repugnican party as 'Christianist'? Because these people are certainly nothing like the Christians I know.

The word 'terroristic' is not a word. Neither is 'Islamist'. The word 'terrorism' is losing its meaning to such an extent that it can be used, straight-facedly, in reference to fucking prank phone calls.

Yesterday or early this morning (I forget which), mesila pointed out that questions were asked of Donald Rumsfeld (or was it Ashcroft? I get my millenarians mixed up) which were not 'will terrorists try to interfere with the elections?' but 'will they be able to?' --not a moment's thought as to how serious a threat exists to democracy in that we MIGHT not be able to vote. And not a single comforting word from Rummy (or Ashy) about it, either: to paraphrase, 'well, we're going to try to stop them from interfering but who knows what will come'. That, to me, is saying 'since we don't have rebels in our homeland to blame a suspended election on, we may be blaming it on terrorists from abroad'.
Meanwhile, the president goes on a motorcade around the country and flips off people protesting his environmental policies through the window of his bus.

Fuck you, George W. Bush. Fuck you fuck you fuck you fuck you fuck you FUCK YOU.
I hope when you die, you find out that there is a hell... and exactly what happens in it to men who perjure themselves, men who covet Iraq's their neighbor's oilpossessions, and all those other people promised to burn in the pit of eternal damnation.
