       January 20, 2005

    The Bush women make for a pretty picture at an Inaugural Ball, but after watching another episode of Project Runway last night, I'm in the mood to join the fashion police force.

    Barbara: She's a very pretty young woman with a nice figure, but she dresses like all she wants to do is disappear into the background. This isn't an awful dress, but it's too close to her skin tone. I think she's hiding in her clothes rather than wearing them. She looks like Jenna's high school age sister, not her twin.

    Jenna: Jenna's pretty much the opposite of Barbara, isn't she? She's vivacious where Barbara is demure, and this dress really fits that personality. First, I absolutely love, love, LOVE green. It's a great color for her and is something that's sure to make her stand out in the crowd. I think this is the best I've ever seen her look. She looks sexy (and is certainly showing off her rack), but not sleazy. Good job, Jenna.

    Laura: Ugh. You really have to work hard to make Laura Bush look bad. So someone was working awful hard here. What a dumpy dress. It's a horrible, blah color (at least in this photo) and the cut is too straight and makes her look like she has no waist. I understand that she probably didn't want to go with a traditional red or blue, but she looks really good in those bold colors.

    As for the Bush men, frankly, you've seen one tuxedo, you've seen them all. I'm afraid that I won't be judging mens' evening attire unless Raj from The Apprentice 2 happens to show up. ;-)

    ...so. What did you guys(?) think of the SPEECH? Seems to have gotten some people on the conservative side of things, like Peggy Noonan- to mention one, a little worried. Maybe it's starting to dawn on them...

    The harshest critic of a guitar player is often another guitar player.

    Or maybe it's an anti-Zionist conspiracy.

    meaningless babble. Guitar players don't declare war on other nations...and to insinuate that a political pundit is equal to the President of the United States is just stupid...and meaningless, because you know better.

    My point is, and for which I ask your opinion, that Bush is showing his true colors, and it has a good portion of his supportrts is the media scratching their heads at best and openly stating that they are worried or concerned at worst.

    ...so again, what did you think of the speech?

    guitar players generally don't hijack planes and crash them in major metropolitan centers, either.. what does this have to do with bushwhacked's logic? nothing.. but it makes as much sense

    I'm not sure which of Bush's supportrts in the media he is referring to.. even Peggy Noonan's article clearly refers to the inauguration speech, not the man.. if anything, Bush's supporters are more sure of him now than ever before

    his speech was certainly different than past inaugurations.. his repeated use of the word 'freedom' was a very encouraging change.. imagine a President who values freedom for our citizens.. that's not something you've heard from his successor, or any other democrat in.. well, I don't think ever

    "At some point, the administration is going to have spell out in more detail how they plan to turn Bush's rhetoric into a practical, executable strategy. We'll have to wait and see how that comes about. But yesterday's speech did seem to mark a very public pronouncement of a coming shift, or rather a new emphasis, in U.S. foreign policy and the President is now obligated to take some demonstrable actions to support his rhetoric. Otherwise, if things rumble along with the perception of "business as usual" the President's words will quickly be emptied of any real meaning."

    -From today's RealClear Politics, a right-wing news site. Tom Bevan (the author) illustrates exactly what I'm talking about.

    As for the repeated use of 9-11...well, for one thing, we don't know who crashed planes on us. At least half of the "identified" hijackers are alive and well...the victims of identity theft. Now who would do that? "By Deception, thou Shalt Do War".

    As for freedom...freedom is so intrinsic to the Democrats' "way of life" that it's a given, and doesn't need to be repeated incessantly. Freedom indeed. If this president truly believed in freedom, he would get a good look at the protesters, and let them get a good look at him.

    ...ahhh, I could go on...but as I said- it seems the the brightest among the wingnuts are beginning to see Dubya's true colors.

    "we don't know who cashed planes on us"... your tinfoil hat isn't on very tight, bushwhacked.. but please show us your facts on how the Bush administration is deliberately causing solar flares.. that one was really interesting

    as for the protesters getting a good look at him.. are they not trying? I personally have seen Presidents Reagan, Clinton and Bush in person.. nobody ever detained me, even briefly.. of course, I also wasn't stupid enough to try and stand in front of any of them waving a big "Better Put Some Ice On That" sign.. I have respect for the office, if not the man.. unfortunately, not everyone believes in the voting process our republic operates under

    i'm continually shocked at people's inability to wrap their heads around a sense of appropriateness. dems and some "right-wing sites" (to quote the troll) need to know that an inaugural address is for grand ideas.

    "at some point the admin is going to have to spell out in more detail.... etc" well no kidding. an inaugural address is broadcast around the world, it's a time to make bold broad statements, not a time to get into nitty gritty deals. when pepsi runs their super bowl ads this year, are the same people going to charge "they didn't even outline their sales and marketing plans in detail! they must be stupid! they must have no plans at all!"

    when your university chancellor speaks at commencement and makes statements like "we need to continue to foster an environment of openness, blah blah," will you dart up from your seat and accuse him of being vague, having no vision, and trying to pull a fast one?

    let me guess - "my chancellor doesn't declare war on other nations," right?
