Protests Follow Bunnypants Everywhere He Goes

George Ochenski writes, "Deafened by war drums and isolated by handlers, President Bush seems unaware of the broad opposition to his current policies.

"..the White House will go to any lengths to manufacture a positive image for Bush, including limiting our basic rights to peaceably assemble and petition our own government. If you're for the Bush policies, step right up here in front of the cameras. If you're against the Bush policies, step over here behind these trucks, where the dogs and cops are waiting for you. The problem, however, is that the protests are waiting everywhere Bush goes these days - even at his ranch in Crawford, Texas. Simply put, it's getting harder and harder to maintain the facade of broad public support for the Bush agenda in the face of mounting resistance. Ironically, while Bush unleashes much of his harshest criticism at leaders like Fidel Castro or Saddam Hussein, whom he says disdain the wishes of their people, he is hypocritically isolating himself behind a barrier of agents, soldiers, and cops from any contact with those critical of his own policies."

"There's an old saying in Tennessee - I know it's in Texas, probably in Tennessee - that says, fool me once, shame on - shame on you. Fool me - you can't get fooled again." - the Oaf of Office, Nashville, Tenn., Sept. 17, 2002.

I'm absolutely speechless.
