Bush whacking

“I’m not very analytical. You know I don’t spend a lot of time thinking about why I do things”, honest words from President Bush, as he spells out his failings to the electorate and yet they still voted him in for a second term. Join the Rude Mechanicals as they storm their way through six years of the Republican Party’s political cock-ups with cutting one-liners and the help of four old school OHP’s. The trouble is we’ve heard it all before, we know Bush is an idiot, Iraq is in a mess and the war was never really about those elusive WMD’s. There’s a reference to the Glasgow bombing, the destructive qualities of religion, Bush’s effect on American identity and how history will look upon the events of the last six years, but aside from that, it’s all old news.
