Bush does the Google

So we went from almost electing the inventor of the Internet, to electing someone who doesn't even use email. In a CNBC interview with Maria Bartiromo (as quoted in this article by the Washington Wire), George W. Bush was asked about his use of technology. That's like asking a 4 year old about his driving habits.

"One of the things I've used on the Google is to pull up maps."

Oh my. And when asked about his email habits, his answer (after translating from moron to English) is basically stating that he does not use email at all because he does not want a written record of what he says in emails. He's afraid of the media getting a hold of his email and having a field day. Heck, it's easier to deny something that is not written down.

Frankly, I'm embarrassed as an American to have "W" leading us. If he's supposed to represent Americans, then the world must think we're all a bunch of good ol' boys ready to drop a "nuke-u-lar" bomb and yell "yeee-hah!"

You know, democracy is great and all, but you have to question a system that allows someone like "W" to be elected. The electoral college seems to be the only college that our president has exceled in.

I propose to remove the electoral college system altogether and replace it with the "Let's-Make-Sure-We-Never-Elect-An-Idiot-Again" system. It will consist of secure voting of qualified candidates who know how to pronounce "nuclear" and know how to work a computer mouse. This, of course, will mean that we will never again have a president from Texas.

I am not a fan of W myself but your rantings have no basis in reality either. You must be a Silicon Valley Drone Programmer who of course values intellect by programming and techonological prowess.

If you are to put down Bush - you must base it NOT on his lack of email use or internet savvy, but how he manages world events or even what he has or has not done for America.

For example - the positioning of the Republican Party as the World Protector against future terrorist attacks while stating that Democrats are weak. OR what has Bush done to address the failing Medicare and Social Security program. The list goes on and on.

Try to get with the issues relevent to the office of President and not how they pronounce words or if they have proficiency of the web/internet.

Oh, please. Spoken like a true republican cronie. My post is simply poking fun at Bush's most obvious flaws and how it makes him, and Americans, look. It is not meant to be a huge political diatribe. It's just meant to be funny.

And also, DAN, the entire Bush family is just a bunch of good ol' boys who like to play with guns. So there. :-)

Dear Ed,

I may have just help my party gets thar ars whipped, and I know you don't knows why I don't like email. It is like you don't understand what it is like to be the president or something.

I do read blogs and personal attacks people make against me. So there!

Now that Rummy is out of a job maybe he can hunt you down and give you a piece of my mind. Rummy you are doing a great job here.
