Juxtapositions: Right-Wing Crook = President?
BUZZFLASH READER CONTRIBUTION
Dick Cheney, and no doubt the rest of the Bush Administration, believed that Jean-Bertrand Aristide should have stepped down because his authority had been undermined [from WashingtonTimes.com...]:
that you can substitute the name of Afghanistan President Harmid Karzi
for "Mr. Aristide" above. There is a key difference;
in one case, we're trying to help the leader. In the other, we at least
enabled an undemocratic coup or at worst, as has been accused by the
leader himself, perpetrated it.
Juxtaposed with this:
Stewart and George Bush have a lot in common. Both of them were accused
of insider trading. Both sold a big chunk of stock
some bad news, to which both had prior, or "insider" knowledge,
surfaced that threatened to affect the stock's price. The difference?
Martha Stewart is a liberal. George Bush is not.
Everybody got that?
