ACT 3, SCENE 1: Banana RepublicansSCENE: Florida, 2000. Gore demands a recount because of irregularities in the ballots, general confusion, and suspicions that the election was altered in Bush's favor (for more information, REFER TO THIS FLASH VIDEO). Katharine Harris, Secretary of State and co-chair of Bush's presidential campaign, did everything in her power to eliminate as many Florida Democrats' votes as possible. If a voter's name or birthdate was the same as that of a felon, that voter was "scrubbed" from the list of eligible voters, too. DBT, a private firm hired to regulate the voting procedure, didn't even attempt to verify whether these voters were truly ineligible; by an amazing coincidence, DBT is headed by staunch Republicans. Bush v. Gore eventually went to the Supreme Court, where the highest court in the land scraped the bottom of the barrel for any excuse to hand Bush the election. Presumably fearing a ruling like this might help a Democratic candidate one day, the court stated that this wasn't a precedent, but a one-time-only ruling because the circumstances were so unique. In the end, the names of 55,100 voters (mostly in Democratic areas) were "scrubbed", causing Gore to "lose" by just 537 votes.
KATHARINE HARRIS IS AT IT AGAIN
ACT 3, SCENE 2: Sounds FamiliarSCENE: Just about anywhere in the United States, circa 2003. The economy is worse than ever, the deficit is bigger than that of all the previous Presidents (including Carter) combined--and that's not counting the multibillion dollar surplus which Clinton left behind, and which Bush squandered in a nanosecond. Overall, the U.S.A. is in worse shape than it has been in since the Great Depression. Big businesses are growing richer, thanks to tax breaks that encourage them to ship jobs overseas, but the middle class is becoming poorer as a result. Scarier still, is that all of this was also true when Dubya's father was the President. Except for the surplus part; of all the parting gifts Reagan left behind, a surplus was not among them.
GOD SAVE AMERICA
ACT 3, SCENE 3: 9/11 AftermathSCENE: After September 11, 2001, the world was united behind the USA, as we mourned the loss of over 3000 lives in a terrorist attack. The USA and its allies moved troops in to Afghanistan in search of the man behind the attacks, Osama bin Laden. But then Bush destroyed that feeling of solidarity as quickly as he spent the Clinton surplus, by moving into Iraq with his arrogant Middle East policy: "Bomb first, look for weapons of mass destruction later." In another "Like failure, like son" moment, we found ourselves at war with Saddam Hussein. Though no sane person supports Hussein and his evil reign of terror, this war did raise some burning questions, like:
BATTLE HYMN OF THE REPUBLICANS
ACT 3, SCENE 4: Wicked Witch Of The Right
SCENE: Various TV news shows. Of all the right-wing blowhards, certainly the most shrill and obnoxious of all is Ann Coulter, whose answer for everything seems to be killing anyone she doesn't like. Her penchant for hateful diatribes has earned her the nickname "Wicked Witch Of The Right", but even that doesn't do justice to the utterly vile thoughts that fester in her diseased brain before coming out of her mouth and pen in torrents of bile.
For example, her oft-quoted reaction to 9/11: "We should invade their countries, kill their leaders and convert them to Christianity." Believe it or not, people actually pay her quite handsomely to say crap like this! (Excuse me, but weren't we fighting a war in Afghanistan to free its citizens from people who think like her??)
And my personal favorite Coulter quote: "Anorexics never have boyfriends. ... That's one way to know you don't have anorexia, if you have a boyfriend." (Politically Incorrect, 7/21/97). Now, look at these photos of her, and tell me this isn't a woman with an eating disorder. Oh, wait, I just noticed -- she didn't include bulimics in that statement. So, does that mean she's bulimic? Or does she not have a boyfriend, and is attempting to explain this away as the result of anorexia, rather than her revolting personality? I'll leave it to you to decide....
It's not bad enough that people like Sean Hannity invite her on their shows and suck up to her, never censuring her for her hateful outbursts. No...being the "wonderful" role model that she is, some insane people actually decided to make a talking Ann Coulter doll. Imagine if this toy from hell had been around when Aqua penned their worldwide hit "Barbie Girl". Perhaps the lyrics would have been something like this....
