Bush Derangement Syndrome

Posted on | September 1, 2011 | 13 Comments

“He doesn’t just blow cocaine up his nose; he snorts it off the tip of a dagger. He likes to kill people when he gets drunk and even disembowels one of his father’s best friends at a party. We see him prowling the streets . . . in his sports car and abducting young girls in school uniforms — including one still wearing braces — and taking them back to his bedroom to drug and rape them. He rapes another woman on her wedding day while she is wearing her wedding dress; a few minutes later, he is annoyed when she throws herself off a balcony. . . . ‘Everything I want, I just take for myself,’ he says.”

Now, some may say this guy wasn’t a typical liberal, but he really hated America, and he especially hated President George W. Bush.

The feeling was kinda mutual.

I’m just sayin’ . . .

    I see what you did there. Nice misdirection.
    I’m actually looking forward to seeing this film, to bad they fictionalized the the ending.

    At first, I thought it was an article about Ted Kennedy.   But then I realized he was an alky, not a snorter.

    Yeah, no need to mention that the book is most likely fiction:

    Iraq derangement syndrome.

    Got me, you devil.  I thought it was from a review of a new Alex Cross novel.

    Many alkies take speed and or snort so they can drink more.

    I thought it was from a recent DNC meeting.

    “‘You should have been killed at birth,’ his furious father says, holding him down and aiming a long curved sword at his genitals. You ought to know you’ve gone off the rails when Saddam Hussein is appalled by your behavior.”
    Of course, if Saddam had an ounce of introspection he would have realized that there is nothing surprising about a murderous sociopath producing murderous, sociopathic children.

    The book may be but there is likely some substance to the son’s reputation. That kind of upbringing breeds a perverse sense of entitlement.

    With Spitzer out, CNN is looking for some new talent.

    The trailers in the theatre make it look like Miami Freaking Vice.  I’m not in any rush…

    Since this is Hollywood, I have to wonder if there is a larger point to the film they are trying to convey. Like maybe, well the Husseins weren’t good Muslims, if they had been  Qusay wouldn’t have turned out like this. So who plays the role of the thoughtful, humble, spiritually minded Muslim Imam? You know, the one who will be identified as a “combination” of real life people. In other words, not one person like him ever existed.

    I read something which claimed that the movie actually tones down the reality of Uday’s behavior. That’s beyond appalling if true.

    It would be pretty hard to exaggerate the character of a person who routinely put people feet first into a wood chipper.
