One of the chickenhawk neocon radio phonies told his audience
this week that President Bush had a tough weekend because his 22-year old twin
daughters had graduated from colleges in different parts of the country. This,
according to the radio phony, caused a lot of stress for the Bush household. Imagine,
two daughters graduating at the same time from two colleges on opposite sides
of the country! The stress is almost too much to contemplate. And, out where the
Stepford people live, one can imagine Ma and Pa nudging each other and smiling
warmly over this human interest story about their president. "What a leader,
Ma! Somehow he handled the stress."
first, first twin, to graduate was Jenna Bush who got her degree from the University
of Texas on May 22. You probably heard about the graduation on the news and you
may have seen photos on TV or in your local newspaper.
you probably didn't see on the news was the fact that also on May 23, it was reported
that seven young American servicemen had died in Iraq on that and the few preceding
days. It wasn't very important when compared to the graduation of Bush's daughters,
and the stress caused by having to handle two graduations at the same time.
20 year old dead Marine and the seven other servicemen and the more than 800 servicemen
who have died in this meaningless Iraq mess probably never gave interviews to
Vogue. Few probably ever took a European vacation. Not many of them even went
to or graduated from college. Instead, these working class kids graduated from
military boot camp. Their parents probably didn't even have the money to go see
them graduate and head out for duty in Iraq.
maybe I'm wrong. Perhaps my belief that the war in Iraq is a meaningless waste
of life is colored by my belief that all life is sacred. Maybe the elites have
it right with their apparent belief (that they'll never say publicly) that the
lives of non-elites aren't worth very much.
