Turn the other cheek ????????
I DON"T THINK SO!!!! MY Fav juicy Bush Gossip ...
CHUY'S MANAGER SAYS AUSTIN POLICE SGT. "SUGGESTED
I TURN THE OTHER CHEEK" RE JENNA 'N BARB
"The Bushes were part of a five-person group sitting
at a table in the [Chuy's] restaurant Tuesday night when
other patrons, a waitress and a bartender recognized
Jenna Bush, who will be a sophomore at the University of
Texas. Mia Lawrence, the restaurant's manager, said she
asked to see Jenna Bush's driver's license. The picture
on the license, however, looked "slightly off,"
Lawrence said, and had another person's name on it.
"It was a valid Texas driver's license; it just
wasn't hers," Lawrence said. Other people at the
table with Jenna Bush had what appeared to be valid
identification, including her sister. Barbara Bush, whom
the restaurant staff didn't recognize, was served a
margarita and a tequila shot, Lawrence said.
"Lawrence said she called 911 and reported that
Jenna Bush was trying to buy alcohol with someone else's
identification. Lawrence said one of the officers who
responded, Sgt. Rodney Keene, asked her what she wanted
to do about the situation. "He suggested that I turn
the other cheek," she said. "I said I felt the
police should do what they normally do." Police said
Keene was not available for comment. Police spokeswoman
Sally Muir said, "I never heard that."
Bartenders and managers typically deal with fake
identifications by confiscating them or refusing service,
not by calling 911, [Assistant Police Chief Jimmy]
Chapman said. Whether Chuy's routinely calls 911 to
report minors who are attempting to buy alcohol couldn't
be determined Thursday. The restaurant was referring
questions to a spokesman who could not be reached. The
group was getting ready to leave the restaurant when
police arrived, [Assistant Police Chief Jimmy] Chapman
said. Chapman said there was too much commotion at the
restaurant Tuesday night to issue the tickets. "It
got kind of convoluted," he said. Instead, police
sent the girls on their way with Secret Service agents
and continued to interview witnesses....The Bushes signed
the [police citations] at their lawyer's office Thursday.
Both charges are Class C misdemeanors under the Texas
Alcoholic Beverage Code and carry a fine of up to $500,
attendance at an alcohol awareness course, community
service and 30-day driver's license suspension. "They
were very cooperative," Assistant Police Chief Jimmy
Chapman said." --Austin American-Statesman, 6/1/01
Laura kills a young boy and says "IT'S
"SAD" THAT HER "TRAGIC ACCIDENT" HAS
"The daughter of a home builder and a homemaker who
kept her husband's books, Laura Welch decided by second
grade to become a teacher. Life in Midland was both
limited and enriched by oil. Children rode their bikes
down hot streets and went to the drive-in in their PJs.
When the first lady was in high school, friends recall,
social life consisted of dancing to the Drifters in the
basement she loved to dance and sneaking
cigarettes on joy rides. One night in November 1963, a
ride went wrong. Laura, who had just turned 17, didn't
see a stop sign and hit a car driven by Mike Douglas, a
track star who ran with her crowd. He died at the scene.
She was not charged. "That was a very hard time,"
says Regan Gammon, her friend since they were Brownies.
"He was wonderful. It changed everyone in some way.
I know I was so sad I might not have been able to see how
sad Laura was. He was a very close friend of Laura's."
In the past, the first lady has said she thinks it is
"sad" this piece of her background has been
unearthed. Now, however, she discusses it evenly but with
that resolute self-possession. "It makes me have
more of a perspective on life," she says of what she
calls "a tragic accident. And maybe I would already
have had that perspective anyway. I just got it at 17."
--Washington Post, 3/22/01
all i can say is , its tragic for her but just think of
the kid she killed ...but oh i remeber she is a fuck wad
rich bitch who can hide her transgressions now ......
It pays to bed the woman in charge of the votes ...
JEB 'N KATHERINE IN TALLAHASSEE TRYST?
The Jeb Bush-Katherine Harris rumors in the media will be
heating up again, according to the pro-Bush folks at NewsMax.com..."America's
most notable supermarket tabloids...are set to reveal a
bombshell story about an affair between Florida Gov. Jeb
Bush and Florida Secretary of State Katherine Harris,"
according to those tabloids. "News of the tabloid
story - said to be backed up by three witnesses, all of
whom took polygraphs - has the Bush transition team and
Florida governor's office bracing. A source at the Bush
transition team says that Jeb Bush was soon going to name
Harris his chief of staff. The position of secretary of
state has been eliminated under changes made before the
recount crisis hit. The story of Bush and Harris has been
floating around almost from the day the election
nightmare hit on Nov. 8." 1/9/01 more
Now this is restoring dignity all right heheheheh.....
THE REAL REASON JEB DIDN'T CAMPAIGN FOR HIS
BROTHER AT THE END
It turns out that the real reason Bush's brother Jeb
didn't do much for his brother the last month of the
campaign was that he didn't want reporters asking about
his son's shocking behavior, thus giving a lie to Bush's
boast that he would being dignity to the White House. As
the editors of CounterPunch note, "On
recently revisiting the Smoking Gun site [Tallahassee
observer Jack McCarthy] was 'shocked' to read that on
October 7 of this year, Gov. Jeb's other young'un, John
'Jebby' Bush was caught humping away in the front seat of
his Cherokee jeep in the parking lot of the Tallahassee
Mall by security guards. According to the TPD Police report, mall security
noticed 'fogged up windows' and found them naked from the
waists down, except for Bush who was wearing 'socks.'
Hopefully with suspenders in the Yale colors. Ah, those
patrician Bushes. Breeding will out.
"Anent young Jebby's rampages, Jack tells us that on
October 24--only days after the arrest- the following
story appeared in the Fort Lauderdale Sun Sentinel under
the headline: 'Jeb Bush Too Tired to Campaign?' 'It's
surprising that the race is as close as it is,' the
Sentinel quoted Florida political scientist Jim Kane.
'But the biggest surprise is that Jeb has not been out on
the campaign trail.' 'I can't do anymore than I am, I'm
tired,' Bush said. Jack opines that 'it's perfectly
logical that Jeb was afraid that the Jebby story would
get out in the midst of his support for his brother's
pledge to restore dignity to the White House.' Imagine
some reporter asking Jeb if it wasn't time to 'restore
dignity' to the Tallahassee Mall parking lot." 1/11/01

Bush Isn't Dyslexic, He's Possessed
OK, so I've been puzzled all day. Why wouldn't Bush jump
at the chance to blame all his linguistic atrocities on
dyslexia? I mean, if he's a bona fide dyslexic, as
opposed to a lazy, arrogant, anti-intellectual cretin who
obviously doesn't spend much time reading or listening
carefully to articulate spoken English (an alternative
diagnosis), then we all have to leave him alone, right? I
mean, a neurological disorder is a neurological disorder.
If Bush claimed to be dyslexic, all us bleedin' heart
liberals would have to shut up and cut him a great deal
Of course, it's possible that the Bush campaign has
decided on the "hell no, we're not dyslexic"
position because they simply do not wish to admit that
Bush makes verbal blunders and has, unscripted, the
vocabulary of a twelve-year-old. Once again, though, one
has to ask why the Bushies would rather deny the obvious
than latch onto such a useful explanation. Surely there
are no soccer moms in the Northern Hemisphere who are
unsympathetic to any and all permutations of the rather
nebulous term "learning disability." I mean,
somebody buys all that Ritalin and all those "Hooked
on Phonics" books. Dyslexia looks like a major
winner with the swing voters to me.
Ah, but therein, I think, lies the problem. What the
soccer moms propose, the Theocrats oppose, big time. Bush
can't admit to being dyslexic because it is, I discover,
one of the symptoms of . . . demonic possession.
Yep. Having just spent some time with one J. F. Cogan's
"Demon Possession Handbook for Human Service
Workers," I can state with authority that George W.
Bush is possessed by demons. This would obviously create
a rather significant problem if the Texas Republican
Church and the rest of the Christian Right found out
about it, so I can see why Bush would want to deny the
problem. But the truth--rather like the demons--will out
According to Mr. Cogan, there are four major symptoms of
demonic possession: "The four basic symptoms are: (1)
violence, (2) lust, (3) greed, and (4) an unnatural power
of persuasion. A born-again (and Spirit-filled) Christian
can discern the presence of demons in a human by using a
technique which has been used by physicians for centuries:
a study of the presence of symptoms. Although the demon (or
demons) may never manifest itself openly by causing the
victim to speak in a coarse, guttural voice or to act out
in an antisocial manner, a study of the past behavior of
such a person will reveal the presence of violence, lust,
greed, and/or an unnatural power of persuasion."
Let's see. Bush has signed more death warrants than any
other governor of the United States, and was of course
famous for blowing up frogs as a child. We've all heard
the stories of Bush offering to duke it out with Poppy,
and we certainly know he can use highly aggressive
language. I think we've clearly got the violence part.
Lust? Well, none of us cares to speculate on what goes on
between George and Laura, but let us note that Bush
himself has admitted to being a little more interested in
"pussy"--at least in the first forty years of
his childhood--than is surely consistent with Christian
rectitude. And what's the first thing he does when he
meets Oprah Winfrey? The signs of lustfulness seem clear,
Greed? A man who would sue over a minor fender-bender in
defiance of his famous "tort reform" views? A
man who would stick the taxpayers of Arlington with the
bill for his baseball stadium, in order to net huge
profits on a relatively modest investment? A man who
would bail out of his company stock holdings at the first
sign of trouble, rather than loyally sticking around and
protecting the small shareholders? Greed? There can be no
There can also be no argument over Bush's "unnatural
power of persuasion." The polls indicate that there
are people being persuaded by what the man says. This is
unnatural. Lest anyone is still unsure, let us return to
Mr. Cogan: "The modern cult leader is a classic
example of a person with a demon enhanced power of
persuasion. This is persuasive power which goes beyond a
charismatic personality coupled with effective
communication skills. This is the kind of persuasion
which can convince large groups of people to band
together with no visible and logical reasons for doing so."
The Republican Convention immediately leaps to mind,
doesn't it? Only Bush's demonic powers could convince
Colin Powell that he should "band together"
with these lame honkies. But, you might say, these four
symptoms are in evidence in most politicians. Yes, that's
true. It is the presence of an obvious learning
disability that is the clincher:
You may find this theory a little far-fetched, but as Mr.
Cogan assures us, we are easy to fool: "The
unnatural power of persuasion coupled with the
intermittent nature of the possession enables the primary
victim to lie with a straight face. This makes it
extremely difficult for anyone to believe that what
appears to be a fine, upstanding citizen such as a
teacher, minister, lawyer, doctor, boy scout leader,
nationally-known televangelist, or major politician could
ever be guilty as accused. This ability to lie with total
conviction makes identification of such demon-possessed
persons extremely difficult by such groups as school
boards, church boards, bar associations, medical
societies, legislative bodies, and juries."
There you have it. Bush is not "in denial"
about dyslexia. He is channeling Beelzebub. And as I'm
sure you also know, this means that he must be lying
about having been born again, since it is a matter of
actual fact that demons cannot possess those who have
accepted Christ as their personal savior.
