Comments by Mike Adams, the Health Ranger
The best part about making fun of politicians is that they give you so much material to work with. Politicians from every country, representing every branch of politics imaginable, are on the record saying such utterly stupid things that it makes you wonder whether they're on crack. And while I admit that any person who spends a considerable amount of time speaking in public is bound to slip up sooner or later, George W. Bush has taken speech slip-up skills to a whole new level of hilarity.
Mr. Bush, for example, is on the record saying, exactly, "Our enemies are innovative and resourceful, and so are we. They never stop thinking about new ways to harm our country and our people, and neither do we." (Washington, D.C., Aug. 5, 2004)
Don't believe me? You can hear it yourself by clicking here (MP3 file). He has also said:
"We cannot let terrorists and rogue nations hold this nation hostile or hold our allies hostile.'' (Des Moines, Iowa, Aug. 21, 2000.) Click to listen.
"Too many good docs are getting out of the business. Too many OB-GYNs aren't able to practice their love with women all across this country." (Poplar Bluff, Mo., Sept. 6, 2004.) Click here to listen.
Given all the jaw-dropping things that Bush has already said (search Google for "Bushisms" to find many more, if you dare), it's not much of an exaggeration to suppose that he might give a speech on Iraq and mispronounce the words, "New Direction."
By the way, nothing in this cartoon or text is meant to dishonor American troops -- just the idiots who keep sending them to war. I respect the troops and have, in fact, personally raised thousands of dollars for the Disabled American Veterans. To support the troops, I say bring 'em home, give them jobs, health care and free college scholarships. That's how to honor the troops, not by putting them in harm's way just because some crazy politician wants a nude erection in Iraq.
Er, I mean New Direction. My bad.
