Boredom, Blogging, Baby Bush & Bellevue
Well, let me start by saying the inspiration for this post is boredom. Boredom, pure and simple. This has been a largely news-less week, unless you consider reporters talking about reporting a non-event as news. I don't. I also think it is a damn shame that the first time the media takes the blogging community 'seriously', it's to be invited to a mass media non-event.
In fact, it was so bad, I didn't bother to read the blogs of the bloggers who were blogging the media non-event. Worse yet, I couldn't even bring myself to watch The Daily Show
coverage of the media non-event, and it was probably the best of all possible sources of coverage. But the non-event was like a Seinfeld Show Re-run. It was about nothing, and the Daily Show would have scored serious points with me, if they had stayed home and covered some of the news that every other media outlet was ignoring.
Hell, I couldn't be bothered to read TomDispatch
's coverage of the media non-event, because all he talked about was how much of a media non-event it was. So Sad.
But, all was not wasted. I realized that major media will not be able to take over blogging. They really can't. Blogging, true blogging, can not be done if you are worried about your advertisers. If you are worried about the advertising dollars, you will be too scared to make outrageous claims like Baby Bush belongs in a mental health ward at Bellevue
In fact, he should immediately be enrolled in the Intensive Personality Disorder Program (IPDP)
. I mean the poor bastard hears voices in his head that he thinks is god speaking to him and telling him what to do!!
"The Israeli paper Ha'aretz reported last year that the President said to then-Palestinian Prime Minister Mahmoud Abbas, 'God told me to strike Al Qaeda and I struck, and then he instructed me to strike Saddam, which I did.'"
I mean think about that for a moment...If someone told the police that they killed someone because 'god told them to', what the hell do you think we'd do? At the absolute minimum, we'd get that person off the street before they hurt anyone else. In all likelihood, if a psychiatric exam determined they actually did think god spoke to them, they'd wind up in a mental ward, right quick.
So, here we have the The President of the United States of America
, personally crowned by the Supreme Court of the United States
, starting wars and getting people killed because he hears voices!!!
Surely we can't treat a mentally ill President of the United States
with any less care than we do a mentally deranged homeless person (especially since this president just makes more of them)??!!
"NO", I say. What is desperately needed now, before this president thinks god is telling him to go invade another country, is the leaders of all the other countries of the world, to join together in an attempt at crisis Intervention
. So come on UN
, intervene now, or you'll just be left cleaning up his messes. This is no time to act like Bush's Willing Enablers
. No, for the sake of the world community, the Bush family, and Baby Bush' own mental health, it is time to put him somewhere where he can get the mental health help he so desperately needs.
One great advantage that Baby Bush has, is the fact that most of the Bush
family has personal experience in intervention centers. In fact, there's probably no family, outside the Kennedys, that can compete with the Bush family on poor mental health, drug abuse and crime.
So, dear readers, call/write the leaders of your countries, and tell them they must, for the sake of Baby Bush' mental health, the health and safety of citizens potentially killed when Bush hears more voices, put Baby Bush away.

I missed Dr. Menlo's
post yesterday. Based on the story he cites, Capitol Hill Blue, "Bush Using Drugs to Control Depression, Erratic Behavior"
intervention is already under way: "President George W. Bush is taking powerful anti-depressant drugs to control his erratic behavior, depression and paranoia, Capitol Hill Blue has learned.
The prescription drugs, administered by Col. Richard J. Tubb, the White House physician, can impair the President's mental faculties and decrease both his physical capabilities and his ability to respond to a crisis, administration aides admit privately.
"It's a double-edged sword," says one aide. "We can't have him flying off the handle at the slightest provocation but we also need a President who is alert mentally."
Well good. I'm glad the voice hearing, war starting bastard is finally getting treatment, but I won't be happy until his is locked away for everyone's safety.
Am I the only one who thinks Baby Bush is starting to look, sound and act more and more like Tricky Dicky in the final days before he was forced to resign?
