every once in awhile, that brain-dead guy in the White House who neither I nor anyone I know voted for manages to surprise and shock me with one of his ridiculous comments. but this - what’s the phrase - takes the cake? actually it goes far beyond taking the cake… it grabs the cake and runs a marathon with it.

in answer to this question from an interview on May 13 with Politico.com and Yahoo online users, “you haven’t been golfing in recent years. Is that related to Iraq?” that guy who has access to the Doomsday Machine has the temerity to respond: “Yes. It really is. I don’t want some mom whose son may have recently died, to see the Commander in Chief playing golf. I feel I owe it to the families to be as — to be in solidarity as best as I can with them. And I think playing golf during a war just sends the wrong signal.”

YA THINK??????

there’s a lot more to this incredible interview and i highly recommend reading Keith Olbermann’s Special Comment from last nights Countdown, available here on the Huffington Post. Video clip there as well.

it was announced this week that Paris Hilton will star in yet another ‘reality’ show later this year on VH1. the show’s working title is Paris Hilton’s My New BFF. a website has been set up to screen videos of the hopeful candidates who will end up living together in a big house with gobs of drama, fighting against each other tooth and nail and spikeheel, to compete for the envious title of being Paris’ number one galpal. it’s stories like these that make me certain we are much closer to the apocalypse than i realized.

and speaking of the apocalypse, George Bush, the current Leader of the Free World, made a comment so stunning the other day in its ignorance that even i was taken aback. apparently he was participating in a videoconference with military and civilian personnel in Afghanistan, who were talking about the challenges they’ve been facing in their quest to build a democracy there.

“I must say, I’m a little envious,” quoth Bush. “If I were slightly younger and not employed here, I think it would be a fantastic experience to be on the front lines of helping this young democracy succeed . . . It must be exciting for you … in some ways romantic, in some ways, you know, confronting danger. You’re really making history, and thanks.”

exciting………..romantic………excuse me? i think he’s watched a few too many war movies. but my favorite part is that last line. “You’re really making history, and thanks.”

. . . and thanks???? you can’t make this stuff up!

forget Paris. the next ‘reality’ show should be Bush achieving his exciting romantic dream of serving in the Armed Forces overseas. straight to Baghad or Fallujah. and i don’t mean the Green Zone.
