HOWARD WEIGHS IN
Thursday, September 01, 2005
Image hosted by Photobucket.com At first I wondered is this guy THAT dumb? And then I realized, no, probably not--but he is counting on his constituents to be. "Democratic National Committee Chairman Howard Dean issued the following statement reminding President Bush that in case he hadn't noticed, ordinary Americans have been doing their part. They have been making sacrifices, they have been suffering. Meanwhile President Bush has failed to rein in skyrocketing gas prices. Now, in the wake of Hurricane Katrina, as Americans pull together to do their part, and gas prices again explode, Chairman Dean suggested that perhaps it's time for President Bush to finally use whatever influence he may have to call on his friends and campaign contributors in the oil and gas industry to bear their fair share of the burden: "Under the Bush Presidency over the past five years we've seen skyrocketing gas prices and oil companies reaping record profits, while ordinary Americans struggle to pay their bills -- yet the President has seemingly looked the other way. Americans are always willing to shoulder their fair share of the burden, and they have been. Now it's time for the President to step up and put the needs of the American people ahead of profits for his pals in Big Oil. So while he's asking ordinary Americans to do more, he ought to show some real leadership, and call on his friends in Big Oil to join in the sacrifice and stop gouging American families at the gas pump" If one is lucky, a solitary fantasy can totally transform one million realities.

    Dean is crazy. I've seen the evidence.
    I guess the spammers cracked the code.

    FYI Bill O'Reilly advocated the same thing and Dianne Sawyer questioned Bush about it.

    Yeah I cannot understand why that would be a bad thing. What the hell do those people do all day anyway? Play golf? Ride ponies?

    Great point, Jack.

    I keep hearing about these "big oil buddies." Who the hell are they? I'd love to know. Because we could use a few friends in the oil industry right about now.

    Holy chit, Jack. I've never seen more ignorance spew onto the blogosphere then from the NO disaster. Have you been reading these posts?

    It's all Bush's fault! WHAT?

    My God. I can't type fast enough.

    Help me, man. Do a post on it. Please help.

    Found you at LBB.

    Yeah- Saw Keayne West, he's been my favorite so far. He literally said on a live fundraiser that "George Bush hates black people. That is why this is has happened."

    Michael Meyers was standing next to him (it was one of those celebrity fundraisers) and he looked over at Keayne (or however it should be spelt) and was just dumbfounded. The show cut to Chris Tucker who looked at a loss for a split second before starting to read from the telepromter. The ignorance and blame is silly!!

    Hi Everyone,

    Back. Sorry so long in responding to comments.

    Sorry too about the annon comments. I hope by activating the word verification it may halt these.

    Nettie,

    I'm more conservative in the "Barry Goldwater" tradition. So much so that I no longer equate "Republican" with "Conservative". Glad you stopped by! Look forward to your coments!

    Mochi,

    I thought you didn't agree with O'Reilly most of the time? :)

    CH,

    Stuff is repeated so often on blogs and in the media that everyone believes it.

    Bug,

    It is sad. Very sad.

    AL,

    Me and Bug go way back. He is a modern day confucious! Wise beyond his years, and darn funny.

    Keayne is just an entertainer. I have met many entertainers in my life, but have yet to meet one with much grey matter. They're not particularly smart, they just act that way...

    -Jack

"Snipet" (pronounced: snipe - it) is not a word.It is a derivative of two words: "Snipe" and "Snippet".


Miriam Webster defines Snipe as: to aim a carping or snide attack, or: to shoot at exposed individuals (as of an enemy's forces) from a usually concealed point of vantage.


Miriam Webster defines Snippet as: : a small part, piece, or thing; especially : a brief quotable passage.


In short, "Snipets" are brief, snide shots at exposed situations from a concealed vantage point.
