Bill O'Reilly and President Bush: Flying, Fickle Finger of Fate Points at YOU!!!
Yes, the spinning Flying, Fickle Finger of Fate stopped this weekend oscillating frantically between Bill O'Reilly and President Bush--forcing the judges to declare co-recipients of the Finger this week. See the entries today on Bill O'Reilly and President Bush, as to why they so richly deserve this "honor". See, further, the entry on President Bush last week, as President Bush insisted on pursuing more bailouts to the bitter end--refusing even to let Obama be responsible for his own decisions. Yep. The second $350 billion could have waited a week. All President Bush accomplished was to further put the Repubican Party behind the bailout philosophy--immunizing the Democrats, for awhile, from much criticism for bailouts of almost anybody, or everybody. O'Reilly, of course, has made almost a career of ridiculing "open borders" people, only to revel himself as perhaps the stupidest "open borders" person of them all.As readers of this blog know, the Flying, Fickle Finger of Fate is my reincarnation (unauthorized) of the old "Laugh In" award for outstanding stupidity that came to light in the previous week. The award is represented by a statuette of a pointing INDEX finger. This blog is happy that the Finger has not spun completely off of this Earth, apparently in dispair, as it was threatening to do a week or so ago (expalining why no award has been made in the last week or two). But the Finger has, for now, returned, and this blog is able to exclusively declare last week's targets of the pointing Finger: President Bush and Bill O'Reilly.Award ceremony (as usual, a virtual ceremonty without graphics, taking place entirely in the imagination, which is why I suggest visualizing Dick Martin presenting the old "Laugh In" award as a visual aid): Imagine Dick Martin thrusting the Finger at the camera and saying: Bill O'Reilly and President Bush, this is for you. You deserve it. In fact, I can announce that "The Maverick Conservative" is making enquires as to whether it is possible to deport O'Reilly to Ireland, and whether it is possible to keep former President Bush in house arrest in his new Texas house, excluded from talking to anyone in the outside world."
