Open Letter to My Favorite Scumbag, Karl Rove

To Dearest Karl Rove:

You have been at the top of the food chain in Washington for eight long years. You have been called Bush's Brain. I suppose someone had to supply a brain to that moron, but why did it have to be you?

You have done everything you could possibly do to help subvert our Constitution. You have done more damage to the country than Osama Bin Laden ever could have dreamed of. And you did it in your official capacity as George W. Bush's chief advisor.

You are scum. You are a slug that crawled out from under a rock. You are a fat fuck. This is just my opinion. Don't take this personally, but I believe you could have been a perfect civil servant for Adolph Hitler or Joe Stalin or even Idi Amin. You could have fit in very well in any brutal totalitarian dictatorship, fascist or otherwise. In fact, you have the perfect personality to be a fascist. You fashioned a secretive authoritarian government that could have been the nightmare of our Founding Fathers.

Your war policies resulted in the deaths of thousands, tens of thousands of people abroad. You helped Bush start a war that you both thought would benefit Republicans politically. And it did. For a while. In a perfect world, you and Bush and Cheney would be tried and convicted for war crimes. And you fostered an economy that is now in the dumpster and is hurting millions of Americans at home.

You are dog crap on the bottom of my shoe. You are despicable beyond words, you corpulent, slimy smirking worm.

Now the Congress wants to question you about politicizing the Department of Justice, which should have been called the Department of Injustice under the Bush administration.

And you are resisting a subpoena from the Congress. Your excuse is that the President (meaning George Bush) has ordered you to resist any questioning in Congress. In case you missed the news, the President is Barack Obama, The George Bush you reference is now a private citizen not authorized to order you to do anything.

I hope the Democrats have the cajones to have you arrested and jailed. And while you are in prison I hope a great big guy named Moose with White Power tattoos all over his body decides you would be a great wife.

Best wishes to you and yours.

With all my love.

Every Republican Voted Against Obama's Stimulus Package

Dear President Obama

The House has passed your $820 billion stinulus package. Congratulations. Every single Republican in the House voted against it. And this was after you wooed them with Cokes and cookies and meetings trying to get their support. And not only that, you gave them you got the Dems to remove family planning dollars and give the Dinosaur Republicans billions in tax breaks.

How's that working out for you?

Tens of thousands of people are losing their jobs. We are hurting out here. Time to stop groveling before the Republicans. Smash em. Mash em. Ignore em. You won. You have the mandate. To hell with the GOP. They are history. They are losers. Go with your program, the one we voted you to enact in Congress. Now.

Yours truly,

The World's Largest Concentration Camp

Dear President Obama

I would like to call to your attention the factt that the Israelis are acting like their oppressors, the Nazis. They have created the world's largest open air prison--Palestine. This is not so different from the Warsaw Ghetto of the late 1930s. The Israelis are acting like abused children and becoming abusers themselves.

The unemployment rate in Palestine is 50%, twice what we experienced in the US during the Great Depression. The Israelis are bombing Palestine indiscriminately with jet aircraft THe targets include UN buildings and a United Nations school.

They are denying the Palestinians food and medical supplies. The Israelis have created perfect conditions for incubating terrorists. None of this is so much different from Buchenwald or Treblinka. Only Palestine is a much larger concentration camp than the Nazis ever built.

Oor news media is reporting that Hamas, the legitimately elected government is a terrorist organization. Hamas was elected in a free and fair election watched by international agencies, including President Carter.

It is up to you to try to defuse this situation. It is time to end our bias toward Israel. It is time to stop supporting their war effort with cash and military hardware. This problem can only be solved with even-handed diplomacy. It's time for a real change in our Israeli policy.

We're Proud of You, Obama...

Um...There is just one more little thing...

But for now, we're proud of you. Because you have issued five executive orders that are light years away from the kind of thing we've been used to the past eight years. You have taken us out of the Dark Ages and back into the Enlightenment that inspired our forefathers to bring forth the Declaration of Independence in 1776 and the United States Constitution in 1789. The ACLU brought these four things to my attention. You have:
Ordered Guantánamo Bay shut down
Banned torture
Ordered a full review of U.S. detention policies and procedures, and
Delayed the trial of Ali al-Marri, an ACLU client whose case is at the center of the Supreme Court’s review of indefinite detention policies.

And you have reversed Bush's health clinic gag order. This noxious order would not allow US funding for any foreign clinic in which even the mention of abortion would be uttered by clinic workers to patients, even if the health of the mother were at risk without it. Naturally, this led to clamping down on funding for family planning groups. It also put a to speak in contraceptive education.

We are proud of you, Obama for acting rationally and reasonably in the Oval Office. This is something we have not experienced for far too long.

But there is that one little thing. How about asking your AG to consider prosecuting Bush and his criminal gang for torture and starting a war with lies? Just that one little thing--Bush and Cheney arrested and put on trial for war crimes. Would that be too much to ask?

I mean we could even forgive Bush and company for secret prisons, illegal wiretapping and trashing the Constitution if you'd just bring him up on war crimes. How's that for a compromise? We don't want to seem unreasonable. Let the 4th Amendment violations and secret prison stuff go for now.

Hey, I bet Scooter might be ready to sing. After all, he's sitting in prison without a pardon. Why do you think that pissed off Cheney? Cheney's scared. Go for it Obama. War crimes. Millions of us would cheer.

Yours truly,

First Letter to Obama

Dear President Obama

I like the ring of that salutation. Millions like the sound of it, in America and around the world. You have inherited a mess, a disaster of historic proportions created by your predecessor and his gang of criminals. We all noticed that you were being gracious to the former president, a gesture that many of us would have foregone.

Meanwhile, as you know, so much hope is riding on your shoulders. An entire nation, even an entire world looks to you to provide inspiring and responsible leadership. We expect your administration to be a 180 degree turn from the Bush years. We will be looking for you to do your best to tun the economy around, provide jobs and help homeowners facing foreclosure. The fat cats on Wall Street got their billions. We will be asking when our bailouts will begin.

We also expect that you will end the Iraq occupation and bring our troops home very soon We notice that you have advertised a widening of the war in Afghanistan. This is a mistake. Afghanistan was a mistake for the British. It was a mistake for the Russians, and there is no reason to expect anything different for us. Get us out of Afghanistan lest it become the hallmark of your presidency as Vietnam was the hallmark for Lyndon Johnson. You wish to do great things for America. Afghanistan is a the graveyard of national ambitions.

We expect you to close Guantanamo and end torture. The Bush administration tortured us all. We expect you to honor the Constitution and our civil rights. We do not expect you to use fear as a weapon against us in order to enact your agenda. Hope is your mantra. We expect hope to prevail.

We expect that you will do much more for the environment. Anything you do will be a great improvement over that of your predecessor, but we expect more than just the bare minimum. We want our parks and natural beauty spots protected. We do not wish them to be turned over to corporate drillers and diggers and road graders, We expect real Clear Skies and Clean Water proposals instead of legislation designed to do the opposite.

We expect you to act like an adult, as opposed to the behavior of your predecessor. We do not expect you to do a stupid stunt like donning a flight suit to land in a jet on an aircraft carrier. Even the thought of you doing something like that makes us realize the difference between you and the frat boy president we have endured for eight long years. We already know that you can use the English language. There's a change. We already know you are a serious man, one we can respect. There's another change.

Finally, millions of us hope and expect that your attorney general will prosecute those who committed war crimes. You know that top level people in the Bush administration flouted our Constitution and the Geneva Convention agreements with their torture, secret prisons and invasion of Iraq, for no good reason. These are war crimes and you must not ignore them. We expect to see Bush and his gang of criminals in the dock, answerable for their crimes. Please do not shrink from doing your duty for the sake of bipartisanship. Your administration needs to face this challenge head on, as a warning to future presidents.

We expect you will preside with the rule of law. We expect that you will uphold our traditions so that we can once more be proud of our country. That will be a change.

Good luck.

Last Letter to George W. Bush

To George W. Bush
White House,
Washington, D.C.

Dear Sir:

That speech tonight was the biggest load of horsecrap since O.J. Simpson said he was going out looking for the real killer.

You are living in a fantasy world in which you and the Chicago Cubs are World Champions. The rest of us are living in the real world in which we are partying all week--albeit with meager party supplies--because this is the last week of your so-called presidency.

Now go to Dallas and dream of cheers and applause from adoring crowds, a pleasure you will not have except in halls full of Republicans who share your delusions.

Bye, bye Bush. We hope to see you indicted for at least one of the crimes you visited on this country.

Yours Truly,

To George W. Bush
White House,
Washington, D.C.

Dear Sir:

I saw some of your final press conference today. I wasn't able to see all of it, because l am one of those lucky Americans who had a job to go to this morning. But I got the impression that this was one more attempt to burnish your eight-year record.

Your efforts to polish that sorry record is a pathetic attempt to -- borrowing a phrase from another Republican -- put lipstick on a pig. Your eight years in office has done more harm to this country than Herbert Hoover could ever dream of doing.

Your miserable behavior in office began just before September 11, 2001. We have since learned that you were warned about the attack in a briefing paper entitled, "Bin Ladin Determined to Strike in US." You ignored it. What was missing--Bin Laden on YouTube with model airplanes and little buildings demonstrating what he was about to do?

You followed that performance with your war. You should be prosecuted for war crimes for invading a country that was no threat to the United States. This is exactly what Hitler did with Poland in 1939 and he was justly condemned by the international community for it. Your war has cost nearly 5,000 American lives and hundreds of thousands of Iraqi lives. You should apologize to us all for using 9 / 11 to start a war that many of us all suspect you started so you could be "Commander in Chief" and strut around at least once in a flight suit after your jet fighter landed on the deck of the U.S.S. Lincoln. Fact is, you looked ridiculous. Many of us remembered that you bugged out on Vietnam with the help of your daddy's influence getting you into the Texas Air National Guard. And then you even bugged out on that. Some Commander in Chief, sending young men and women to die in a war after your performance in the sixties. You gave new life to the term "chickenhawk."

You should also be prosecuted for war crimes for your policy of torture and secret prisons. You should be condemned by history for illegally wiretapping American citizens by the thousands with your secret program. No, revise that. You should not be condemned by history. You should be indicted by a federal grand jury.

And you should apologize to the American people for letting a major American city drown. Again, you ignored warnings that Katrina threatened the levies. You didn't send help for almost a week while American citizens gathered in the Louisiana Superdome without food or water. You didn't even know about the devastation until some aides put together a DVD for you to look at.

And I haven't even mentioned that this country is now suffering the worst economic cataclysm, debacle, catastrophe since the Great Depression. Millions of us have lost our homes and our retirement accounts. Congratulations, $2 billion pounded into the sand in Iraq every WEEK, and total deregulation of the financial markets and you didn't think something BAD was going to happen? Or were you too busy clearing brush on your "ranch" to notice?

I could go on, but I don't have the time. You lied to us repeatedly. You let a CIA agent get outed to satisfy a political vendetta. You called the United States Constitution "just a goddamn piece of paper" at a meeting of Congressional Republicans, and you acted on that belief. You keep saying history will judge your administration. Well, I would be willing to bet that you will go down in history as not just the WORST president this country has ever had. You will be remembered in the history books as a disaster.

Seven more days.

Yours truly,
