GOP Hypocrite of the Week: Karen Hughes
A BUZZFLASH EDITORIAL
Listen to the GOPHOTW HERE.
Welcome back to the BuzzFlash.com GOP Hypocrite of the Week.
She's back. Bush's Dominatrix and world class liar has returned to the pro-Republican mainstream media circuit -- after a self-imposed exile in Texas -- to lay slimeball siege to any Democrat who threatens the Village Idiot of the World.
Forget for the moment that George W. Bush has the courage of a weasel. Also, overlook, if you can, that the dimwitted dauphin prince has such meager ability that you could fit all of his skills in a thimble and still have room left over for two raisins and Dick Cheney's heart.
Karen Hughes comes from a military family and she respects hierarchy and authority. You salute the chief -- and if he is Jim Jones and he offers you a glass of Kool-Aid, you drink it.
And the Kool-Aid of the Bush cartel is gutter politics, so sleazy that it would disgust a snake.
That's why Karen Hughes was back on the pro-Bush mainstream media circuit last week.
Ostensibly, she was pedaling some ridiculously self-indulgent memoir, but she had time to imply that the million women and men who marched for reproductive rights were morally equivalent to terrorists and to deride John Kerry's decorated career in combat and anti-Vietnam war protests.
Excuse us, isn't this the woman who intimidated reporters for years into not covering the truth about Bush's time as a grounded National Guard Pilot who avoided service in Vietnam -- and his mysterious "lost in a haze of drugs and booze" AWOL days?
You would think that the imposing hatchet lady for an administration chock full of cowardly chickenhawks would hold her fire when it comes to Kerry's war record -- and that equating being pro-choice to Osama bin Laden might not be the best way to win over the soccer mom vote -- but Karen Hughes proves that being a hypocritical thug isn't limited to the male Bush loyalists.
Hughes's self-laudatory book is called "Ten Minutes from Normal." Well, in this administration, she's ten million miles from honesty and candor. That probably should have been the title of her tome.
As one reviewer of her book on Amazon.com noted, "Why anyone would believe a word from this amoral sow's pen is beyond me. To equate pro-choice with [a] 9/11 terrorist is beyond the pale. Let's hope she goes from 'Ten Minutes From Normal' to ... deep into oblivion -- and we don't have to ever hear another word of drivel from this shill's mouth ever again."
Karen Hughes, drill sergeant of the Bush Cartel spin squad, we salute you as the 29th BuzzFlash GOP Hypocrite of the Week. When you are finished running down a war hero like John Kerry, maybe you can write a book about the honorable Vietnam service of Bush and Cheney. It wouldn't take very long to write, it would be blank.
So, until next week, just remember our motto at BuzzFlash.com: So many Republican hypocrites, so little time.
Catch up with you soon.
