Mr. President, Sir!
You said those insurgent criminals (in Iraq) fear our democracy.
Well, Mr. President,
Among (many) other things,
The way you got elected in 2000
The way you did nothing to stop 9/11 from going down
The way you lied on Saddam and WMD’s
The way you lied on Saddam’s ties to Al-Qaeda
The way you got our troops killing and being killed in Halliburton (and companies) war
The way you plan to stay there
The way you’re packing the courts
Taught me a profound lesson:
Them insurgents ain’t got nothing on me.
I fear our democracy too.
Scares me to death.*
