Bush Person of the Year?

Changing the face of politics. That is why George W. Bush is Time magazines person of the year...

How did that happen. Oh I remember he steals elections and lies about his motives for war. One of the reasons that was stated is actually that he is defending America's interests. Yes, I suppose he is by invading other countries. I guess that Bush's interests will now have all the oil they need. You know we used to reward people for peace efforts. Funny.

Mel Gibson and Michael Moore were other candidates along with Karl Rove. For touching the pulse of America. Hmmmm.... One for a movie about fanatical religion, one for hating Bush, and one for ensuring his reelection.

I wonder if only American's can be nominated or if the editors are only interested in America. I venture to guess there are better candidates elsewhere.


P.S. to any of our conservative attendees. I don't apologize for my views. But feel free to yell at me.

There is only one reason that dope (our current president) could ever be considered "Person of the Year." The fact that he isn't a real person. President Bush no longer exists in my world. My life for the next four years will be like a strange movie or video game. Nothing makes sense but you just have to push on and hope that things work themselves out. World events and politics may again matter and make sense to me. But not before at least two things happen. First, mainstream media needs to get it's head out of it's ass and start reporting news, not selling it, promo-ing it, dumbing it down, editing all the life out of it, sterilizing what is messy, messing up what is simple, and quite generally being naughty pants people. Second, our political leaders need to figure out that politics it for the people, it's not a game they play. The "game" of politics is "played" today as much for it's own benefit as the benefit of the people. The politicians like it that way, and it will never change without a kind of "coup" from the masses. We all must change the system and they way to do that is to be the system. We have farmed out the government to the lawyers. "Outsoursed" it if you will. Someday I will run for office. Not to be a big shot. Just because I'm a citizen. We all need to remember what that means. Critics, begin your bashing now.
