Bush Officials In The Area Wednesday ?

It looks like some members of the Bush circus and their media clowns will be in the area Wednesday morning for another staged event
It looks like some members of the Bush circus and their media clowns will be in the area Wednesday morning for another staged event. The rumored spot is the Rock Creek campus of Portland Community College which has been crawling with an interesting combination of maintenance staff frantically cleaning and repairing everything the gaze of the esteemed visitors might fall upon and various law enforcement characters in suits and uniforms. It would be a convenient spot, out of the easy reach of the usual Portland rabble, deep in the heart of the Republican paradise of malls, SUVs and sad tickytacky 'burbs known as Washington County. Maybe they'll be throwing a little extra money at communities colleges to train more willing worker bees to labor for less and less, of course to be taught by the college's army of part-time instructors who know all about that. Nobody who's talking knows who exactly will be there except that it's probably a cabinet member maybe two and it's happening in the morning.

some low-ranking toadies and

insignificant minions? Whoever they are, they'll likely be the usual set of
White House assholes that sniff after George W. Bush and try to "clean up"
after him. So, why should we get all that excited about them? Let 'em come
and go without having a placard waved in their faces...maybe that'll piss 'em
off as they realize just how insignificant they are in whole scheme o' things!
What better way for 'em to get house-broken in Portland than too ignore 'em?

good to know you guys are ever vigilant and my tax dollars aren't being wasted! Although your logic shows you ought to lay off the hamburger!

mmHmm

Yeah, that's a good idea. I'll just rest up for my nap. Could you bring me some warm milk while I sit down and imagine just how pissed and alone they'll be feeling without us? Oh nevermind.....i'm too.....sleepy......I think i'll just doze off right here........
