GOOD, THIS IS BAD.

So I got a call from a nice woman at the health department informing me that, in addition to Spotted Fever, I tested positive for West Nile Virus. Next summer I am having my blood replaced with insect repellent. Having fairly well thrashed the Spotted Fever, I was perplexed as to why I still felt like ass. I wonder no more, nor need I wonder why I am going to feel like shit for the next couple of months. Next summer I plan to get the bubonic plague, whooping cough, hysterical pregnancy, and possibly a case of dropsy.

In light of my stellar health and mood at the moment, I'll merely direct you to this (and please be sure to read all the way to the end) if you've yet to see it. Oh, and they've also got some interesting ideas about immigration. Lest anyone convince you that this person and his organization (Family Security Matters) are just some fringe wackos, they're a public front for the Center for Security Policy. Hi, Richard Perle!

Ladies and gentlemen, that's neoconservatism. Slavery, genocide, and an American dictatorship.

    This might be my favorite bit from the Family Security Matters article:

    "If President Bush copied Julius Caesar by ordering his army to empty Iraq of Arabs and repopulate the country with Americans, he would achieve immediate results: popularity with his military; enrichment of America by converting an Arabian Iraq into an American Iraq (therefore turning it from a liability to an asset); and boost American prestiege while *terrifying* [emphasis mine]American enemies."

    So…I guess the "war on terror" wouldn't apply to America's plans for future terrorism?

    I also found the proposition of Bush becoming "President-For-Life" as an answer to our "squabbling Congress" and "out-of-control Supreme Court" particularly interesting.

    I visited the Ann Frank Exhibit here in Decatur yesterday, and, following the time line of Hitler's rise to power, it's just too easy a connection not to make: Unchecked, the Bush administration could become the next great fascist regime. Even my 94-year-old grandmother was struck by the historical similarities.

    Oh, and sorry you're sick.

    It looks like you also have several diseases that have just been discovered – in you.

    Fortunately, when they all try to get into your body at once, they get stuck. They're in perfect balance! It's something that we call "three stooges syndrome."

    Woo, woo, woo!

    Of course, this *could* just be a clever ploy on Atkinson's part to get the historically ignorant Bush whacked. "Yeah, George, just do *exactly* what Julius Caesar did–it worked out *really* well for him–oh, and don't bother about any Secret Service protection when you go to the Senate to deliver your next State of the Union…"

    I too got a hearty chuckle out of the irony of his metaphor. I was thinking "Gee Phil, did you ever read to the end of the book to see how that worked out for Caesar?"

    My favorite part was when he wrote "consul (president)" as if to telegraph to his readers that, like each of them, he is in fact stupid as fuck

    ps West Nile, Ed? That disease is only for immunocompromised grandmas, and pussies!

    Well…hysterical pregnancy is fine but keep gout out of it all, okay? I don't think that would good.

    You forgot leprosy as well.

    Oh, and the articles…they'd be hysterical if these asshats weren't serious.

    Perhaps it's time to upgrade the Neocon Bingo board?
