Marrels of Oil
Nobody picks on George Bush.
The trick being, if you are in the mainstream media, to fabulate what he actually says into something that is palatable for a wide audience.
It works like this. (This is only a simulation - so relax.)
"George Bush today MICHAEL JACKSOOOOOON IN PAJAMAS read the papers NEXT ON LARRY KING according to Scott McClellan TODDLERS DEAD IN POND - NEWS FLASH - PEOPLE DIE"
"George Bush WELCOME TO SCARBOROUGH COUNTRY likes to walk to helicopter I AM THE MOST IGNORANT PERSON ON TV and salutes the press at waist level I WILL PROVE IT COMING UP NEXT"
"George Bush WE REPORT YOU DECIDE patriot act FAIR AND BALANCED Condi Rice LIBERAL MEDIA"
I am a blogger. I am not bound to write for an audience, or even an editor. I can actually write according to the prods and slaps of mine own conscience.
So, while I am not going to pick on George Bush, I can at least direct you to someone who is reporting on what Bush actually says, rather than on PAJAMA PARTY AT NEVERLAND RANCH.
Technology Will Save Us
Mike Malloy of Air America Radio played several clips from the address, and Bush certainly sounds as confused as ever. At one point Bush said "Marrels of Oil" in a slip of the tongue. Malloy lit off by pointing out Bush's trivialization of real conservation initiatives, be they hybrid cars or bicycles or hot-air balloons or our own damn feet; and then concluded: "There isn't any more oil, George".
If we were real reporters, we'd get paid to distract you from this kind of thing.
