War of the Jackasses:

Former President George let NBC’s Matt Lauer know how disgusted he was by rapper Kanye West in the immediate aftermath of Katrina.

After all President George W. Bush did for minorities, how could Kanye West be such an ingrate?

Lauer: “You say you told Laura at the time it was the worst moment of your presidency?”

Bush: “Yes. My record was strong, I felt, when it came to race relations and giving people a chance. And it was a disgusting moment.”

Lauer: “I wonder if some people are going to read that, now that you’ve written it, and they might give you some heat for that. And the reason is this — “

Bush [interrupting]: “Don’t care.”

Lauer: “Well, here’s the reason. You’re not saying that the worst moment in your presidency was watching the misery in Louisiana. You’re saying it was when someone insulted you because of that.”

Bush: “No, and I also make it clear that the misery in Louisiana affected me deeply as well. There’s a lot of tough moments in the book. And it was a disgusting moment, pure and simple.”

Worst moment ever! (Bush being a former cheerleader so fits).

Bush remains an impetuous child, more consumed with the slight than the magnitude of the disaster and his administration’s success in shrinking government to the point of absolute ineffectiveness.

Well, professional tourettes master Kanye West responded:

Well, I definitely can understand the way he feels, to be accused of being a racist in any way, because… the same thing happened to me, you know, where I got accused of being a racist…” (referencing his asshole moment with Taylor Swift)

“For both situations, it was basically a lack of compassion that America felt in that situation. You know, with him, it was a lack of compassion of him not rushing — him not taking the time to rush down to New Orleans.

“For me, it was a lack of compassion of, you know, cutting someone off in their moment. But nonetheless, you know, I think we’re all quick to pull, like, a race card in America.”

I was glad at the time West said it.  Anything to light a fire under people’s asses was fine by me.   I still had relatives missing.

  1. Asking Bush what the low point of his presidency was is like asking Ranger Smith which tree he likes best in Jellystone.

    First of all, they’re both cartoons, and secondly, his presidency was one big ocean of low points, so it’s hard to pick out discrete ones from the background noise.

    The only *good* thing I can remember happening during his presidency was daylight savings getting pushed back. Am I missing anything?

    • Granted, but, y’know, everything else was just wars against brown people, and poor folks losing their jobs, their homes, or their money, and whatever — you know, boring stuff.

      But Kenye West, I mean, come on — *that’s* interesting. He gets mentioned on, like, Entertainment Weekly, and the Bush twins usta listen to him between bouts of sobriety.

      Also, Mary Hart is kinda “foxy”.

      =============

      I jest, but not much — if folks cared more about the “boring stuff” then the current flavor of Republicans couldn’t get themselves elected, I don’t think.

      • Personally, I wonder if Kanye is bipolar. Now, Bush is just a brain-damaged, old drunk. Both conditions are boring…unless they’re running naked on the Interstate. Then it’s funny. 😉

  2. remember when pickles bush was asked about the iraq war and the suffering of the american people because of it? she said:

    No one suffers more than their President and I do.

    you see, that’s how rethugs think. it’s all about them. they only care about their own feelings, and fuck everyone else, especially anyone who talks smack about them.

    • So many twilight zone moments in the Bush Administration. That one was a WOW, they really don’t fucking get it moment. I mean WOW. I thought of the carnage video I’d sifted through, the flag draped caskets, the cradle of civilization blown to fuck and looted. But no one suffers more than the Bushies.

  3. that’s rich…the most disgusting pc. of shit we’ve ever had as pres. is disgusted. i so hope no one buys this book, ignores him, and he can go back to whatever rock he crawled out from under in TX and stay there with the rattlesnakes & scorpions.
    he really is beyond the pale…

  4. TWO TERMS.

    How did that happen? (I guess it was ONE TERM by election and one by unfounded Supreme Court intervention.)

    As a Canadian looking in, I just can’t understand how this man got elected in the first place. I’m sorry to be so bold, but something is broken in the American electoral process.

    What scares me is that it is still broken. And the nation faces great danger. The economy is not likely to greatly improve in the next two years, so how many more completely unqualified (tea party) candidates will win primaries and elections? Worst of all, after allowing Sarah Palin to do all this “fundraising” over the last two years, the Republican leadership though they intend to try, will be unable to stop her from making a run at the primaries. My greatest fear today is that you will surpass the idiocy of Bush by electing the first president who campaigns via Facebook and Twitter rather than debate and serious engagement with real problems.

    The more we talk about the lunacy of Bush, the more I fear the election of Palin. If he could get TWO TERMS, are we sure that she won’t get ONE?

    • I’m sure it helped that his DUIs, cocaine use, and sketchy National Guard service were kept under wraps. Americans had Clinton fatigue from the 24/7 coverage of the little president’s escapades. That’s why it was close initially. For round two, I suppose being steeped in Iraq and Afghanistan brought the old folk vote out.

      The youth vote helped defeat McCain. Its lack helped defeat so many Democrats this midterm. Obama’s going to have to reconnect with the youth if he wants a second term.
