Bush's Saddle

Earlier this evening, I watched President Bush's farewell speech followed by the Mel Brook classic "Blazing Saddles." All I can say is, "Gentlemen, please rest your sphincters."

I didn't always agree with President Bush, but I believe him when he says he had the country's best interests at heart.

Of course, the Bush haters will ignore the fact that he kept us safe, freed women from rape and torture in Iraq and Afghanistan and did more for AIDS victims in Africa than Bono. I think Madeline Khan sums up my feelings about the Anti-Bush crowd best when she sings the title of the song "I'm So Tired."

I was nine-years-old when "Blazing Saddles" was released in 1974. It might explain why I honestly thought I would see an African-American President in my lifetime. Mocking racism was the first step in improving race relations... or so I thought.

It's thirty-four years later and what I thought would happen has finally happened. I just didn't think we would have this African-American as President. Unfortunately, Barack Obama is the type who can say about himself, "Ooh, baby, you are so talented! And they are so DUMB!"

I hated Bush, mainly because he sounded as dumb as Billy Carter, Dan Quayle etc. But we were safe.

Oprahbama HAD to hire Hilolary to do it because he can't even keep his blackberry safe.

Is it just me or does anyone else think he's gay and on the downlow? Who is going to be afraid of rhetoric?
