“Sometimes you just have to pee in the sink.” (Bukowski)
You know those despicable and “agreed-upon” societal standards of “beauty”? Yeah, those. Well, imagine a woman who embodies what’s widely and sadly accepted as the “ugly” range of that specious spectrum. “Ugly as sin,” as the hateful saying goes.
Now imagine this woman came of age in 1950s America and during that time she wore her love of liquor like a badge; couldn’t hold a job; barely, if ever, paid the rent on any of her filthy flophouse apartments; regularly engaged in drunken brawls that ended with her either in an ambulance or handcuffed in the backseat of an LAPD cruiser; and unashamedly neglected her only child.
I swear, this Empire is going completely FUBAR: continuing wars; expanding police state; Nobel Peace Prize for a burgeoning POTUS war criminal; compromised environment; droughts; floods; earthquakes and tornadoes.
This article will be fairly popular among the faux-gressive set because I will be primarily “bashing” George Bush. By the time George Bush left office, my act of minority courage in criticizing Bush became a national (socially acceptable) pastime. It hasn’t been so criticizing Obama from the far left—righties assume I love him and Democrats think I am a “teabagger.” Actually, the only thing I have been since my son was killed in Iraq is a principled antiwar activist.
Anyway, a fresh assault on sanity in this FUBAR country will occur on Thursday, June 18th in New York City when George W. Bush will receive the “Father of the Year” award from the National Council on Father’s Day.
This is such astounding news, it’s hard to know where to begin.
Let’s start with George’s record on being a father.
