Did I miss the secession?

Posted by schroeder915 on December 22, 2006

In his story describing a possible Katrina commission led by the Democratic Congress, AP reporter Cain Burdeau used an interesting word choice: repatriate.

On the eve of assuming control of Congress, Democrats are interested in forming an investigative panel similar to the 9-11 Commission to investigate who was responsible for the levees that broke during Hurricane Katrina and to probe the government’s efforts to repatriate and rebuild this devastated city.

So the Democrats will be investigating how George W. Bush and the Republican Congress lost New Orleans, and what the United States can do to get New Orleans to rejoin the Union? I’d be really pissed if I missed out on the secession.

And speaking of what Republicans have lost in the last year, I just watched The McLaughlin Group on PBS. John McLaughlin wore a red and black wide-plaid jacket with a yellow dress shirt. Does he buy those jackets at thrift stores? Good on ya John! Someone’s gotta do it. Anyway, given the overwhelming concensus among panelists, and the tenor of their criticisms of George W. Bush as the worst president in history, and given Bush’s stubborn stay-the-course-with-more-troops solution for the Iraq quagmire, even as his generals have resorted to openly criticizing him, if this were a different time and place (i.e., a different era and nation), I’d say it’s “bunker time” for Bush.

Bush has sunk to lower popularity than I ever thought possible. I think I’ll start referring to Bush as “the most revolting president ever.”

If, in fact, we’ve seceded, I’m voting for Segolene Royal.

    Hang on just one cotton picking minute! I will not be happy if we have seceded and no one sent me the memo. If we did, why are we sending oil to the enemy? LOL!! Come to think of it, then why are we allied with them in the Iraq debacle?

  2. It’s true — we could probably get a better price for our oil in the EEC. Plus, we could start charging tariffs for the importation of agricultural goods, steel, and other products passing up and down the Mississippi through Louisiana.
