Rudy?, what about Huckabee?  Does anything come out of his mouth that doesn’t involve Christian mythology?  That is truly scary, the curious mix of blood lust and spirituality.  Why can’t people see the obvious similarities between the Christers and the Islamists?  Bush and Ahmadinijad could be twin brothers of different mothers.

Everytime I think we couldn’t do worse then GWB, I hear another ridiculous statement out of Rudy and I’m reminded just how much lower we can sink if anyone of those Rep Clowns gets into the Whitehouse.  And they all think we need more War!  What I really don’t get is how many sheep still follow this group…..

Rotten Rudy is just a twit. This 9/11 crap is way old. On his watch, the terrorists were allowed to deliberately win. That is not going away. And, there’ just not enough time between now and eternity to pretty that reality up with the America’s Mayor spin. September 10, 2001, Guilliani was doing good to avoid being tarred and feathered as NYC’s mayor, certain to leave office by a historic landslide. The only thing he managed to avert was the landslide. Bloomberg still WON!

The so-called hijackers had box cutters and plastic knives, or so the report went. Why the passengers on board those flights didn’t kill those idiots with their carry-on luggage still puzzles me. Still, though, what idiot would suggest arming the common air passenger sheep with a 9mm weapon loaded with cop-killer hollow points in a pressurized cabin at cruising altitude?

Having worked in the public school system in an urban metropolis, I have come to know that arming each commercial flight with a bunch of evil jealous pre-menstruous 8th grade girls will end all terrorism in the sky and a good portion of idiocy in America forever as we know it. The standard scrappy pack of she-wolverines usually comes armed to the teeth with much attitude, rage, straight-razors, box cutters, and ice picks. They guarantee combat victories to challenge the US Marine Corp. For the price of some hair extensions, great looking nails, and an opportunity to go unchallenged as the last statement in fashion on Planet Earth that week, America can win the war on terror and properly break off Osama bin Laden. For a second free make-over with Kimora Lee, they’d even rid the globe of Slim Fast Huckabee, whose brain was obviously lost with all the weight.

I’m beside myself with shock that rotten Rudy’s campaign team hasn’t once considered this option, especially with so many battalions of these prepubescent troops trained, armed, and good to go right there in NYC. Mayor Bloomberg is currently offering them cash incentives to attend classes just to keep from having to call in the Marines to protect NYC from them. It’s a waste of good talent. Rudy is squandering a perfectly good make-over opportunity to abandon that crass obtuse Dame Edna look in elegant deference to the more sophisticated fashionable Rita Moreno or Diann Carroll looks. He’s running for President. He seriously needs to start dressing the part. Furthermore, these fine talented young ladies are progeny of the systemic dysfunction educational legacy of the Rudy years as Mayor. He should be as honored to exhaustively flaunt and exploit their consequential existence as he is elated to enjoy his incurable bouts of 9/11 Tourettes Syndrome.

Republican’s pandering to the NRA; that pretty much sums up the choice we face in November 2008. Change or more of the same macho BS from Republicans who love to send other people to fight their wars. Let’s just hope that in the remaining 15 months, we don’t find ourselves in another middle east war fiasco.

When I first heard Rudy say that about 9/11, I was trying to figure out if he meant the highjacked plane passengers should have had guns.
