That's easy: bancroftian filariasis. The parasite might as well have one...

A right hook. No wait, that's on my birthday. Maybe a highschool science textbook would be in order?

Why continue? Because we must. Because we have the call. Because it is nobler to fight for rationality without winning than to give up in the face of continued defeats. Because whatever true progress humanity makes is through the rationality of the occasional individual and because any one individual we may win for the cause may do more for humanity than a hundred thousand who hug their superstitions to their breast.

A corpse, mayhap?

Yes..., yes, a corpse, a nice fresh one so that he can be amused as he watches it rot in a corner of the Oval Office. We can find lots of them in Iraq, can we not?

Or perhaps not -- the Rude Pundit's already giving him one and ours would be redundant.
quote:
Happy Birthday, Mr. President:

Oh, the Rude Pundit's been a-rackin' his brain all week about what to get George W. Bush on the occasion of today, his 60th birthday. 'Cause what do you get the man who has everything? No, no, really, seriously, the man has everything. One can be sure he has an electric razor or a snazzy tie collection. And you can't buy him a bottle of wine or whiskey (well, you could, but you'd have to give it to him on the sly, wink, wink). And there's so many things the Rude Pundit couldn't afford. C'mon, you think we mere mortals could get him the kind of watch he's used to, a Bulgari or Ebel? Perhaps a nice Fossil, but, no, nothing more. We're just gonna have to think outside the box, as it were.

The Rude Pundit thinks we should all chip in and get George W. Bush a corpse for the start of his seventh decade despoiling the Earth. But which one, which one? 'Cause there's just so fuckin' many to choose from.

How do you compete with such splendorous munificence? Just think of the symbolism involved here. A dead and decaying Iraqi civilian, or perhaps a roadside bomb-shredded grunt would so-accurately showcase his War on Terror -- his greatest accomplishment -- that all other gifts would fare poorly in comparison.

Further, if Pickles gets a headache, he could sleep with it and thus complete the portrait.

Well, I had originally posted "a Darwin Award" but realized it's both too late and unfair to his children. I wouldn't recommend the killing or death of anyone so I wrote retirement instead. I see it as a practical matter. The point is to get the crazed maniac away from the metaphorical pretty red button...

Still, you are probably right...

Obviously, a guest shot on The Randi Rhodes' Air America Radio Show.
I'm sure she would, in her own special way, tear him a new anus.
Yesterday she called the North Korean Taepodong Multi-Stage Missile

I love it.

Possibly, but not necessarily.
Better the possibility of a non-maniac than the certainty of a maniac, wouldn't you say?
