Can't see the pumpkin pie through the sewer rat

    Hey, sewer rat may taste like pumpkin pie, but I'd never know 'cause I wouldn't eat the filthy motherfucker.
      Pulp Fiction

This is the latest MSNBC story about "Operation Swarmer," the new offensive in Iraq. The subtitle carries the denial that politics was a factor in the timing. That sure was the first thing that crossed my mind. I have to admit, there's a good chance it's not politically timed, but I could never believe that at this point.

It's gotten so bad that, when Alberto Gonzales announced a major child pornography bust, I was dubious. This was no doubt a group of scumbags that needed to be stopped, but I cannot see past this loathesome administration. That is how much they betrayed our trust. There's no getting that back.

It doesn't matter what they do any more. It might be pumpkin pie, but all I see is sewer rat.

Great analogy, man.

I second the kudos. Brilliant. And I totally agree: if God reached down and pointed at Bush and told me personally, "He's my man," I'd be looking behind the curtain or asking for a second opinion. There's nothing these people can do right anymore in my eyes. They broke that trust a long time ago.
