Face of a Nation

73-year-old Bill Moyer, a veteran of Korea and Vietnam, wearing his Bullshit Protector at Preznit Smirking Bully's speech to the VFW in Salt Lake City a week ago.

I can't get over how much I like this picture (I like it so much I'm posting it again). The story about some members of the Veterans of Foreign Wars wearing these things on their ears and showing blatant disrespect for the Chickenhawk in Chief warms my heart. You've got to love gruff old guys like Bill Moyer who see through all the jingo and the platitudes and the cliches and the fake patriotism that Commander Bunnypants spouts in lieu of any real, meaningful information. When guys like him and other VFW members turn their back on the Preznit, you know the shark has been jumped, the tipping point has been reached.

Apparently Bill and his pals caused quite the Presidential snit by their actions, too. Doug Thompson of Capitol Hill Blue reports that Dumbya unleashed a tirade of obscenities on his aides after the VFW affront, saying "...tell those VFW assholes that I'll never speak to them again if they can't keep their members under control." Thompson says that these behind the scenes hissy-fits are becoming more and more common as the country finally wakes up to what a fraud and a phony the Preznit is, and his poll numbers continue to tumble. (In the same story, Bush is quoted as saying about Cindy Sheehan, "I'm not meeting again with that goddamned bitch! She can go to hell as far as I'm concerned!" All class, that guy.) If only they'd seen that a year ago...

Of course, there's also this clip, showing just what a classy and upstanding guy Preznit I Hate America really is. Like we didn't know already.
