Sadist-in-Chief Goes to Virginia Tech

If it were not a given that Bush’s handlers would rush him down to Virginia Tech as soon as the political opportunity arose, one could ask if it were appropriate that he, or any other politician, be there at all. The blood had not even dried on the walls and there he was. No way was the White House going to let the first few days be a time for Virginia Tech to look inward for friend to friend support and some self reflection.

It gets worse. Bush is a man with personality disorders; not unlike a good many of the people around him and who voted for him. His are just …out there. The one on display yesterday was his abundance of sadism. Get’s a truckload from his mom. A bit more than 24 hours after the murders, he stands before traumatized youth and brings up images of what happened. “Students woke up, and they grabbed their backpacks and they headed for class. And soon the day took a dark turn, with students and faculty barricading themselves in classrooms and dormitories -- confused, terrified, and deeply worried. …It's impossible to make sense of such violence and suffering. Those whose lives were taken did nothing to deserve their fate. They were simply in the wrong place at the wrong time. Now they're gone -- and they leave behind grieving families, and grieving classmates, and a grieving nation. “

He probably did not write all these “condolences", but the sadism reflected in the words uttered is pure Bush. Those who conspired with him saw another opportunity to spread fear among the weak and uncritical among us. Bush adds his own twist. These are awful people.
