Doesn't "egg head" mean something very non-Bush?

Any reference to Dick Cheney shooting his gun stopped being funny about two months ago.

Nah. Nobody died, so we can make all the tasteless jokes we want and maintain our pretensions of moral superiority.

No, no, Ryvar. It'd be funny now if someone had died.

Dick Cheney shooting somebody will always be funny.

Egghead does seem like an odd characterization for Dumbya who is at pains to sound rustic despite his upscale Yale education.
It is painful to listen to his speech, the phrase-pause, phrase-pause, phrase-pause cadence is maddening.
Scrambled eggs for brains, maybe.

No, no, I don't mean its not funny because he shot the guy, ts not funny because its overused to the point of being hackneyed. Making jokes about Cheney accidently shooting his load in someone's face is still acceptable though.

Dumbya who is at pains to sound rustic despite his upscale Yale education.

Lest we forget that he was born was born in New Haven, Connecticut on July 6, 1946; attended Phillips Academy Andover (Massachusetts), Yale University and Harvard Business School.

Aw shucks, pass me some pork rinds.

Someone posted a really good Dr. Seussian take on "I'm the Decider" yesterday at DailyKos.

here are the first few verses (link above goes to full):

I'm the decider.
I pick and I choose.
I pick among whats.
And choose among whos.

And as I decide
Each particular day
The things I decide on
All turn out that way.

I decided on Freedom
For all of Iraq.
And now that we have it,
I'm not looking back.

To paraphrase Jon Stewart: Bush isn't dumb. He thinks we're dumb. That's why he talks like that.

Keep this in mind when listening to him speak. Talk about infuriating.

That was cool. They almost nailed the voacl performance except for the weird sounding falsetto part.

Who decides the decider?

We all think you're dumb for voting the nasty fucker back in.

Harvard Business School.

And during the 1st campaign he was explaining how, having the MBA, how well run the US of A was going to be. Just like any well run company.

Hey now, less than half of us voted for Mr. Sunshi--I mean Kerry.

For what it's worth, I am suitably apologetic when I travel overseas.
posted by quite unimportant at 1:59 AM on April 20, 2006


For what it's worth, I am not apologetic, because I had less than nothing to do with Bush getting elected either time. Anyone who voted for him, either time, go ahead and be apologetic, now that it's too late.

And Cheney shooting somebody is still funny. What's not funny is him getting away with it.
posted by Kirth Gerson at 4:06 AM on April 20, 2006


What exactly did he get away with?

What's also not funny is that song.

I saw the Dr. Seuss thing on kos as well; I think it's a lot funnier.

If John Lennon was alive and heard this...he'd be laughing his ass off. (and wondering what the hell went wrong with that falsetto)

He shot some guy in the face with a shotgun. Too bad you missed it.

When I get to the bottom
I go back to the top of the slide
Where I stop and turn
and I say some more lies
Till my rating hits bottom and I say 9/11!
Yeah, yeah, yeah
Do you don't you want me to lead you
Just keep on swallowing all the lies we feed you
Tell ya tell ya I'll tell ya the answer
I'm the decider, yeah I'm the dictator

Mission 'ccomplished!
Mission 'ccomplished!

...or somethin' like that

I think the falsetto was the product of bad pitch-shifting. Just my guess.

I agree with Ber, and think John would be very pleased. The lyrics could have been a bit better, but I'm very impressed with how quick this got out.

I never liked the term 'pig' much (for cops or government folk), until this administration. Not to deride hogs, which are perfectly wonderful critters, and taste good.

He's a real Nowhere Man,
Sitting in his Nowhere Land,
Making all his nowhere plans for nobody.
Doesn't have a point of view,
Knows not where he's going to,
Isn't he a bit like you and me?
posted by digaman at 8:07 AM on April 20, 2006


I laughed even though I agree ape-man is better than egg-head. Thanks for the linky. Even though I call my radio show The Millionaire's Holiday, sometimes I think I should call it The Metafilter Holiday given the front page has provided hours of great programming over the years. and yes, I send out props every time i recycle lest anyone thinks I'm a glory hound.

You've got a lot of apologies due right here in America.

Right... I guessed I missed the part where he broke some law that he's apparently "getting away with".
posted by Witty at 11:37 AM on April 20, 2006


Yes, you did.

What a surprise.

What? I voted for Kerry, sucka.
posted by quite unimportant at 12:21 PM on April 20, 2006


Broken law or no, I'd say anyone who shoots someone and then gets an apology from the victim is getting away with something.

Bush is dumb. He just thinks everyone else in America is dumber.

The last 6 years would seem to support assumption.
