W is for Whore

The decider just blew into town, taking a decidedly cool 150 K off the local suits who evidently look up to him as some kind of business model, if not their fantasy-in-the-flesh master of the universe. Being "business leaders," a breed not generally noted for the broader perspective, they seem to have missed the irony of highlighting an "economic summit" with the guy who destroyed the global economy. I can just picture the accompanying brochure, How to make a fortune by wrecking the world! 
         Surrey's mayor said she knew her "invitation" to Bush would be controversial, but apparently what she doesn't know is the difference between an invitation and a purchase. Bush is pimping himself out to any and all willing to play John to his Jezebel. Nothing unusual there. Yesterday's White House is today's whore house for all the perpetual "Mr. Presidents" still cumbering the earth after office. The only difference between a call girl and a call pres is that prostitutes lie on their backs but presidents will lie anywhere. In the world of celeb politics yesterday's lie becomes today's lay.
       Bush, however, is an especially dirty lay. His stupidly bad "decision points" left Iraq in ruins and his own country in shambles. The man has blood on his hands and misery in his wake but has been allowed to strut about the globe unchallenged by the mainstream presstitutes. And although groups such as Amnesty International are always on hand to stand witness to the enormity of his crimes, their power to call him to account is little more than symbolic, if that. We can't even throw a shoe at him. Bush hides behind his secret service guard and hides his reputation behind compliant governments and a prostrate press. No one can touch him.
      But we can touch his source of revenue, i.e., his customers. Why not "out" these power-worshipping "business leaders" who fawn over the world's worst tyrants behind closed doors, lining up like groupies for a photo with the great man while fondling their $600 presidential pens? By funding Bush they are in effect supporting the legacy of his monstrous tenure and all the willful destruction of innocent human life that it entailed. They are retroactively complicit in his crimes and as they try to take a lustre from him should be made to take a share of his obloquy as well.
       Find out who they are and plaster their names - and more importantly, their businesses - all over the internet. Why should we give them our custom which in turn underwrites Bush's war profiteering? Shame the johns and hit them where it hurts, - and hurts Bush - in the pocket. The message should be the same as for any transaction, honest or sinful: buyer beware.
