Cute and snarky all at the same time, but what else does one expect from the crime family, of course? Former Prez Bush, the Chimpster's papa recently lashed out at we bloggers...I love stuff like this, it makes blogging all the well worth it, eh?
Last night on Fox News, former President George H.W. Bush said the current political climate has "gotten so adversarial that it's ugly." Asked to offer an explanation for why there is this "incivility," Bush pinned the blame on bloggers. "It's probably a little worse now given electronic media and the bloggers and all these kinds of things," he said.
Yeahright, dude. Pot calling the kettle black, I see. Who also ran a filthy campaign back in the day? Some of which rubbed off all-too-well on his kid, right?
The nice part is, yes, recognition. It's nice to know that the Rethugs think that dearly of we bloggers and our steely determination to keep tabs on creeps, criminals and other assorted bozos, but then, the MSM stopped doing that eons ago, and well, the public deserves to know stuff, correct?
They still don't get it. Blogging, web pages and the internet have become America's very own Samizdat. Samizdat? Yes. It's a Russian term, meaning, that era when dissidents within the old Soviet Union wrote up things, then, with some method to copy it, distributed it in secret. The idea was a way to get around state-controlled media. Was that what killed the USSR? Well, it sure as hell didn't help.
Bush's little snark against bloggers veils what he and other Rethugs are smarting over: Despite the mainstream corporate control over the air, the papers, whatever....we bloggers delivered the truth in volumes. Where did we learn the horrid truth about Chimpy's lies about Iraq? The blogs. You name the topic, the real truth was unearthed by many, published, and then republished a few hundred thousand times by blog after blog after blog. Eventually, someone reads them. Eventually, someone gets an idea or two.
Can we then honestly say that the blogs influenced this last election? Absotively, positively, yes. Without Kos, DU, Raw Story, ourselves, the list is endless...we made an impact, and the "state" ain't happy at all about that.
All of which means one thing: We're just getting warmed up, aren't we? Thanks for the nod, George, now, go spank your boy, he needs a paddling. Leave finding the truth to us, we do a much better job.
