What Cheney said. But with fewer words.

"By jabbing a threatening phallus at your enemy like a wild animal, you aren't just belittling him, but also making him your sexual inferior." Apparently, George W. Bush let some boys in East Lampeter, PA know that they were sexually inferior. But Kerry too has jabbed a threatening phallus recently. [Bush link via Kottke; first link previously discussed on MeFi]

Please excuse my ignorance, but why is John Kerry a traitor?

I haven't heard so many politicians tell me to go fuck myself since Joycelyn Elders was around.

i'm confused... the finger (not disbelieving for a second) is where? Caveat: I am tipsy on vino and the bus seems blurry...

"The action got started off right when we arrived on the scene, and seven or eight teenage guys decided to "re-enact" the prison abuse scandals in Iraq by stripping down to thongs and making a human pyramid, while donning black hoods." (from the first link, detailing a protest against bush.)

While harsh, that's a pretty goddamn great way to drive their point home.

Too much bickering, not enough phallus.

unless there were lots of witnesses or a better photo ... the link was cool, though, but a book ...?

i too will join the Jocelyn Elders fan club, if there is such a thing.

They should have done it in swim trunks, so there would be no legit cause for arrest. Unless there's a new law forbidding human pyramids, or possibly a constitutional banning.

As much as I hate to admit this, the bush picture seems like a fake. I did a brightness adjustment on the image in photoshop. The driver is clearly a white balding man who has both hands firmly on the wheel. As a gay, athiest, Armenian-American, this is the kind of picture I was ready to post everywhere. Sadly it doesn't seem all that damning.

"I rise in support of the honorable gentleman from Missouri's Heterosexual Under-Clothed Male Pyramid Prevention Act of 2004 (HUMP-Prevention Act) . . ."

Bush kicked my cat once. I didn't quite get a picture of it, but here's one of my cat.

On the other hand, like I said on MoFi, when Trudeau did it kicked ass, when Bush supposedly did it all I can think is "how pathetic." I guess it's a matter of knowing that for Trudeau it was shorthand, for Bush it's all he's got.

Me too...with the wine thing. And me either about finding the finger. Is this like one of those Waldo things?

Sadly, I see no finger.

PS: I am also drunk.

Citing NewsMax is about as good a source as referring to some govt sanctioned newspaper in China, but that said, why does the Viet Vet (Against Kerry group) think he has the right to tell anyone that he or she is not allowed to be at a tax-payer's monument in the nation's capital. In the words of ur staid and conservative VP: go fuck yourself.

Put a condom on that president. You never know where he's been.
posted by troutfishing at 7:03 AM on July 13, 2004

Oh yeah, I forgot to mention - you'd better buy those "Presidential" sized condoms - about 6'1" or so (not those little Thai condoms or the "International" brand either), and make SURE to get the "Bill of Rights" brand as well. That's key.

Otherwise, we all get something presidential-sized shoved up our asses - and not in a consensual way at all.

Yeah, that bus photo is pretty slim in terms of evidence.

The metaphorical phallus is easier to spot in this picture.

Wait, wait... In this one you can really see it.

Ted Sampley is a professional a-hole. He goes around intentionally trying to bait Kerry. The fact that he told Kerry he was there to escort him away from the wall while Kerry was there with a school field trip of small children tells you all you need to know.

To borrow an old SNL line, I think the Secret Service agents should have "wrestled him to the ground." Roughly.
