George W. Bush: Socialist

What an astonishing failure George W. Bush has been as president. Not only has he pulled a reverse Midas and turned nearly everything he's touched to shit, he's even failed to be much of a conservative. Not that this bothers the "true believers" out there. So sad. I know I'm not supposed to dismiss the huge southern block of Republican voters as stupid rubes who don't know decent policy from a bucket of slop, but sometimes it's too hard to resist.

I can see how they might not want to vote for Ted Kennedy or anything, but how about demanding a little accountability from their representatives? I'm not sure these guys actually are conservatives. I read somewhere that a majority of Bush voters thought their guy came down on the Democratic position on a whole host of issues. Heck, they don't even know who they're voting for! Is the little (R) next to the name really that important? Let's face it, if the Republican Southerners who vote these jokes into office actually had their conserviative wishes come true, their highways would be spalling, pot-holey rubble in about 3 years. Note to Georgia: Don't spend Illinois' tax money all in one place.
