Why Look Back? Admitting Mistakes is for Girls

"Right about one thing..."

Man, waiting three years for the Chimp-in-Chief's term to end is not going to be easy. Every single moment of every single day passes so sllllllllllllowly.... it's like waiting for a watched-pot to boil... or waiting for the prototype of my new Dream Site to load... but in order to help the time pass during these moments, I try to look on the bright side. President George W. Bush has his faults, to be sure, but at least he is totally right about one thing:

It is never a good idea to admit to even a single mistake, no matter how small the error, no matter how many people call you on it, no matter what the additional consequences may be. Regrets? He has none. "Constructive" criticism? He deletes it from his mind. Some might call that stubborness or ego. Johnny A. calls it keeping your eye on the ball.

This is what we pay you for, John: to keep your eyes on George Bush's balls.

Here's another $50.

I have my eyes on Bush's balls, why am I not getting paid?

I really can't believe the fall out from this. Is this what we find time to argue about while or core civil liberties erode? This whole thing is petty on all sides.

Actually, I see this as kind of cause and effect.

John, caustic a-hole, effect, angry readers.

That simple.

Can you walk and chew gum at once, fred? The rest of us can. Multitasking is really not that difficult.

John is free to stop being "petty" (although bigoted is a better description) anytime he wants.

I'm feeling somewhat benevolent today (and the rest of the ACRC has demanded a day off) so I'm allowing many of these comments to stand as written. Now my regulars can see what a bunch of freaks you all really are (Fred Bieling excluded, of course. Thanks for the support, Fred.)

Most of my regulars are staying out of this because they know how to KEEP THEIR EYES ON THE BALL. They know that if there's nothing "ON MESSAGE" to say, then don't say anything at all.
