Another Incompetent Loser Gets Honored by Bush
In a tradition known as "pardoning the turkey," George W. Bush gave a big fucking party for Donald Rumsfeld today. There was even a 19-gun salute for the death of his career.
And what a career it was: Thanks for Iraq and Abu Ghraib and Gitmo and 3,300 dead U.S. troops and however many hundreds of thousands of dead Iraqis and the return of Taliban and Bird Flu and Enemy Combatants and whatever other evil shenanigans over 50 years of "public service."
In a better world, Rumsfeld would've been dropped in a dumpster and buried in a mountain of filthy diapers and broken glass. But we're stuck with the world we have, not the world we might want or wish to have at a later time.
