Believe It Or Not, It’s A Fun Read

Over at the Awful Forums, there is a great thread started by Martin Random, a supposed White House insider, and he’s dishing dirt about our favorite Bush administration villains.  It seems like a hoax, until you start reading the rest of the thread and his answers to questions asked by the rest of the folks in the forum.  Whether he’s for real or not, it is a very fun read, I’m still not done, but I’ve been stuck there for a while so I thought I might as well direct you there too.

A few of the nuggets are Cheney has bad breath AND he’s a close talker (not a good combination), Rumsfeld wears iced underwear, Tom Ridge is a freak, Homeland Security spends millions of dollars on useless products from China that it buries in the dessert, and although I didn’t like what he had to say about Russ Feingold, I still recommend the thread, it’s great fun, even if it’s not true.

It's a pretty humorous thread (even brilliant, assuming humor was the intention of its creator), but I doubt that a White House insider with that much supposed knowledge would have so much time to post, especially the several posts within minutes of each other.

People like this and like the guy who made the 911 conspiracy video are either sneaky conservatives trying to make liberals look stupid or crazy liberals who want to discredit the government at all costs. At any rate, they are making all liberals seem irrational with their screwball ranting. I don't appreciate it.

Byron--I don't know that they are making "all" liberals seem irrational. There is room for all kinds of views and the way this administration has continually evaded responsibility for bad policy, incompetent governing and downright crimes, has people a little off kilter. Some of us choose to take a rational approach, try to figure out the best strategy to get from here to where we want to go, others rant and vent the rage we all feel, and still others look for answers to questions that have been left open ended.

Like I said, it's doubtful that this guy is for real, but in the end, I really don't care, it was fun to read, maybe because of the possibility of it. Maybe the idea that Cheney, Rumsfeld, Bush, Ridge and company are damaged, nuts and corrupt, makes it easier to understand why we are suffering and causing suffering around the world. And the 911 video is the same thing, trying to find answers that make more sense than what we've been told. I can't fault people for looking for answers, I would like some of my own.

Perhaps you’re right and it is a concerted effort by conservatives to make liberals seem unhinged, but that seems like an awful lot of unnecessary work when they've been so successful making us irrelevant by dismissing us all these years. Why change tactics now, it's not as if we're on the rise. If we are, that’s a whole other story.

I read that thread and had a hearty laugh. You know some it could be very true (for instance, it's pretty easy to see Rumsfeld with a chronic case of gas just because he's older and under a lot of stress)and some of it blatantly false. Who cares? The stories were all pretty entertaining.
