Sound Destruction: I'M PISSED

Monday, August 01, 2005


This is what I think of Bush's predictably stubborn & selfish decision to bypass Senate approval and appoint Bolton as UN Ambassador. Who needs global allies when we can go it alone, right?! It's mind boggling how anyone in their right mind can continue their allegiance to this stupid rogue cowboy that we're forced to call our president.

Hey, hey now. We voted him in, so he must know what he's doing. Like, for example, he's really good at...


Wait... what exactly is it that he's good at? Nepotism? Tunnel-vision? Short-sightedness? Selective compassion?

Oh, oh, wait. He's really good at convincing Americans that he's actually good for them. He's got a real talent for that one.

Well then, sar, I guess it's good that the UN is an impotent organization incapable of doing anything right! Bolton might as well have been appointed Ambassador to Aruba... Not much difference.

Man, I can't wait until the day we get some real cajones and evict those deadbeats. I'm sure the good people of NYC could use the extra parking spaces (current occupied by the sprawling UN complex.)

The UN is absolutely dead space in NYC (agreed w/TLM).
80% of them hate the US anyway.
If Bolton can go in there, yell at them and kick their asses then let him.
Bush is just exercising his presidential right which was just told to me by Wolf Blitzer. the Dems are just angry at Bush because he doesn't bow down to them and all they can do is talk amongst themselves because nobody apparently listens to them.

The only thing Bush has shown competence for in 5 years is pissing off democrats which makes partisan Republicans happy. I hope the group fondle is as pleasurable as it seems. The only reason partisan Republicans are opposed to gay marriage is they prefer orgies.

what's wrong w/ orgies?
If I wasn't married I'd go to a few.
It'll probably stink real foul. sweat and sex juice, but you only live once!

Maine - Excellent comment!! Callous narcissim also comes to mind.

TS - you're welcome! :)

TLM & Araider - good grief! Though it makes for a nice deflection, the UN is not the villian here. It's Bush who remains the raging fire that fuels the global disdain towards us.

Doug - Excellent analogy, though surprising coming from you. It inspires a word that serves as both noun and verb apropos for Bush: Splinter.

I like how Araider took Doug's analogy of Republicans and ultimately said "It'll probably stink real foul". Sound like a proper assessment to me. ;)

Blogger araider said...

the global disdain for us was there long before Bush and will continue long after.
If I was someone in high power and had to make a decision to give someone a position which I thought would be a good fit and some of my collegues think it's not, I would exercise my power and appoint that person. As a decision maker, you just have to make decisions. May they be right or wrong at the time.
And you can't say you wouldn't do the same thing. You just hate Bush, if he wipes his ass the wrong way, you would object to it. I applaud him for not listening to the Dems, look who he has to work with. People with absolutely no agenda to anything besides abortion and gay marriage on which I actually support. Abortion more than the gay marriage but nonetheless.
As your buddy Clinton said "I feel your pain"

ARaider, When a manager makes decisions for no reason except to piss off half the people and get in a manpile with the other half, he isn't fit to be in charge. I don't disagree with Bush getting done what needs to be done this only happened but this only happened to get good play on Fox.

Sar, splinter is the perfect word for the reasons you gave and because it describes the remnant of a wooden head.

Sar is right. tlm and araider are using the nomination as an excuse to bash the UN as a whole (which, granted, John Bolton would love them for because he says the same thing). Sar's complaint is with with Bush--why not address that instead of veering away onto your own topic?

And while America hasn't always had a good image with certain nations, most polling and international surveys reveal that over the last 5 years, overall international approval has gone down. I don't know how you can blame that on the Democrats, since its the Republicans who own Washington and the government. But I'm sure araider, when left to his own devices, could figure out a way.

Blogger araider said...

Doug, I disagree, I never said it was no good reason. Is someone is right for the job then they are.
Can't speak for Bush and say he did it to piss of the Dems but if he did I like him more as of today than I did yesterday.

CW-thanks for the confidence, so here goes it: Sar being a lefty and other leftys will always be against Bush tht's just a given no matter what he does. Lefties are like Nascar and Indy drivers (their political views aside), they always drive in the same direction to the left and always end up in the same place they started. My absolute despise for the Dems came from Fat Teds and Dicky D's comments taht the rest of the world heard about the denainees being tortured in Iraq and GTMO. They obviously don't know the diffrence between interrogation and actual torture.
Having a dog chain around their neck and being nude is not torture. Torture is what Sadaam, Hitler, Stalin did to people. Gasing them, raping their children in front of their parents and cutting their arms off so they can bleed before being shot.
Try to watch History Channels: The dark art of interrogation if you haven't seen it yet, it'll change your mind. Making a stupid comment by comparing Bush to Hitler will of course make the rest of the world hate us even more which they definetely don't think about. As Jon Stewart said the only ones that should be compared to Hitler is Hitler. But as the lefties do, that was never further addressed because their tail is between their legs. If they can't beat Bush, then insult him. very nice and ballsy. As I'm writing this I hope Bush will continue to piss them off.
On a diffrent note, never stay at a Comfort Inn, because they suck

But what about Bolton's sexy, pr0n star-style mustache? That's GOT to count for something...

John "the Stud" Bolton?

Blogger tlm said...

OK, fair enough, Chris. Forget everything I said about the UN.

As you said on your own site, Bolton couldn't get a real vote. Damn right!... That's the issue here. And whose fault is that?

sar, You'll have to forgive me if I don't join in on your Bush bashing. If that's all you intended this thread to be, then have at it. Bash on! :)

Araider - as much as you falsely group me into your blanket accusation of being deadset against Bush, you in fact are a follower with equal blind dedication. And guess what, the torture at Abu Graib was horrific. I don't know how to put a hyperlink in a comment, so I'm sending a link to my mentor, Doug (sorry I let you down swami) to put up in the comments. It's graphic proof of the atrocities that occurred at Abu Graib. I'm sure CW can offer a substantial amount of links as well.

It's unnacceptable compounded by the fact that it comes at the hands of the very American military who are supposed to be liberating and spreading democracy. We go in to erradicate torture with what, more torture?! Think that does anything to substantiate our global standing? I'll tell you this. The very president you defend and admire is responsible for sending off honorable, dedicated soldiers to suffer and/or die in an unjust war, and he promoted the idiot who was ultimately responsible for said torture and the piss poor post-war lack of plans.

And I'm sorry to hear the Comfort Inn sucks. Try staying at a Holiday Inn, you might learn something. ;)

Blogger Sar said...

Well, TLM, I suppose thank goodness Bolton wasn't a viable candidate, because look at all this fun we wouldn't have had!

As for "Bush bashing", I'm afraid Bush just does it to himself. We just reitterate with emphasis.

Amen, Strider.

I was against the Bolton nomination for a couple of reasons: 1) The Senate couldn't properly give advice and consent because the White House would not release non-privileged documents about incidents that had concerned both Democrats and Republicans on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee. 2) The man isn't who the United States needs at the UN. This is the same guy who said we should just remove the 10 top stories and it would still be the same ineffective agency. That's just wrong. The UN is going to become critical in rebuilding efforts in Iraq--unless we plan on abandoning the people and letting the balance of power in the middle east settle with Iran and watch the democracy we tried to create devolve into Civil War. 3) The guy was a jerk at the State Department and a bad boss. 4) As was revealed last week, he lied on a Senate questionaire. If he lied on that, what else was he going to lie about?

In our foreign affairs today, we need credibility more than anything. John Bolton doesn't offer any credibility--well, maybe to the idea that neoconservative international relations theories are prevalent in the leadership of this nation. The United States can do better. And that should be good enough for selecting someone like Newt Gingrich to be UN ambassador (and yes, I'm serious about that).

Araider, he did it for the manpile, but I'm prepared to leave it at that. There's a link you should see, per Sar:

As has been explained, Bolton is totally wrong for the job.

Furthermore, the only difference between Bush and Hitler is that Hitler was acknowledged as a dynamic orator, while Bush is so pitifully inarticulate that he is barely coherent.

Bolton was picked because he has been part of the neocon crime family for a long time. To hell with them both.

I had a lot to say about this...then I saw Doug say "manpile," and it just sort of evaporated.

It'll come to me later.

The idea, not the manpile.

Gabriel, I was channeling you yesterday.

Araider - good luck on the hotel front. As a courtesy I should warn you the link Doug was kind enough to put up for me (a million thanks, Doug!!!) has graphic photos from Abu Graib in addition to a non-partisan written account of events.

CW - thanks for your eloquently astute case for why Bolton is the wrong choice. Now, let's talk about your choice of Newt??

Shea - Bush is so pitifully inarticulate that he is barely coherent - that would be exceptionally funny if it weren't so sadly accurate. This is the leader of the free world we're talking about, afterall. And you're right, it's all about connections. Why else would anyone pick Bolton to be THE FACE of our country?! *shudder*

Gabe - You, speechless? Wow...

Doug - You left Gabe speechless! Wow...

Blogger Doug said...

Sar, that's because I was using his voice. I honestly thought of him before I wrote "manpile." Not that there's anything wrong with that.

Blogger tlm said...

chris - I don't believe for a second that you're opposed to the Bolton nom because of the FRC documents. That's unoriginal horseshit, frankly... Like it came straight out of Sen. Schumer's mouth. I'd actually respect your opinion if you just said "because Bolton is a pompous S.O.B." What's in those documents doesn't mean anything, as far as Bolton's lack of character is concerned. We already know how he operates. For Dems (like yourself) to use it to hide real motives is cowardly.

And you've got to be kidding about putting Newt in the U.N... WTF? Are you forgetting his affair with a congressional aide, his ethics lapses, his tactless way of serving his wife with divorce papers, etc, etc.?

Yep.. Fine moral guy he is. You're right, though... He'd fit quite well in a global organization of thugs and criminals.
