Bush Fiddles While LA Burns
Where was George?
He was nowhere to be found when California, and other states under his watch, drown in a sea of red ink. But then again, it was Bush's friends at Enron and other energy bilknesses, that set them on their spiral downward.
Remember the blackouts?
Remember the cause?
Sure Governor Davis is a little weenie-man. But the world is full of weenie-men, and they have to work somewhere! Why not as governor of California? I mean, look at the king weenie in the White House. We have lost all standards. There are no Sir Roberts left.
Where are the Sir Roberts?
Remember Sir Robert? He was the gentleman and MP in the play and film, An Ideal Husband, who, through the help of ill-gotten gains, finally achieves an honorable position in society.
Now don't get me wrong. There are plenty of people who have gotten where they are through ill-gotten gains. The difference here is that, like Jean Valjean, Sir Robert actually evolves into an honorable man of worth...by rejecting a scheme that would require his reactivating, for lack of better words, his ancient prejudice toward money, and against goodness and honesty.
How nice it would be if leaders in America, although tainted, would raise themselves to the honorificabilitude of a Sir Robert.
But perhaps I am wrong. There already is a Sir Robert. And this Sir Robert hails from, of all places, West Virginia.
Sir Robert Byrd was once a member of the Ku Klux Klan.
But look at how he has achieved that which is beyond the scope of some...he has evolved. And is even allowed to believe in such evolution! Not only has he shunned his errant past, and shady connections...he has risen to become the outspoken voice of the people on the Senate floor.
It is sad to realize that his age all but guarantees that we will not have that voice much longer.
Long live Sir Robert Byrd! Champion of the People...
