See, the last decade of American politics has been confusing as a motherfucker. The recounts, election fraud, willingness of elected officials to lie to the public and corruption scandals fly in the face of our current democracy marketing campaign. Advertising may get folks into the store, but a shitty product will have them turning right around and cursing your name on top of it.
But now we all have a chance to demonstrate democracy in action. Yeah! Imagine the print story y’all could plant in the Iraqi newspapers covering this shit…Today President Bush was censured for willfully ignoring the law of the land and authorizing the illegal wire-taping of American citizens without a warrant or legal review. In America, the citizens have rights and those rights are upheld by the law of the land. No one citizen is above the law of the land…including their President. Congress writes the laws and censured the President for violating his oath of office and his responsibility to preserve and protect the Constitution of the United States of America. This is a demonstration of democracy honoring no elected titles and checks & balances in action!
Oh my, this is a huge opportunity for a wee little international lesson in American civics!
Talk about shock and awe (wink).
