Did George Bush Kill David Halberstam?

There's only one question I have about the accident in which David Halberstam was killed yesterday, and it's the same one I had when the Christmas Story guy was killed in Pacific Palisades. And I must say that the longer the question remained open in the latter's case, the more certain I was of the eventual answer.

As you probably already know, the question is not: "Was the other driver drunk?" No, it is, "Was the other driver an illegal?"

Because it's become commonplace to assume than when a person dies violently, and especially in an auto accident, it's usually an illegal alien who's responsible now. and I say "assume," because you know it's not the illegal who's solely responsible, it's also Jorge Whatsaborder Arbusto.

Whether the illegal arrived here on Bush's watch or before, it's still Bush's fault.

And so we wait. It will eventually come out. At least it always has. But more and more, people on both sides of the political spectrum don't want these sorts of things to become public.

Of course, Halberstam was a liberal, so if it was an illegal who's at fault, how ironic for liberal policies and principles - two weeks in a row!

I can see a new Bangles single – "Just another Liberal Monday…"

But this is all so premature. I don't even know if any laws are broken, much less that an illegal was involved – so it's lucky I'm not a court of law…

About tedwest

A longtime veteran of comedy and political forums, I decided that I needed a more restful venue because... well... I finally hate everybody. Except my wife that is... and my ex-wife.. and... no, that's about it. I lead about as simple a life as one can, preferring activities that include anything that doesn't involve going out and seeing YOU! And I particularly enjoy what I call "Get the Bitch" movies on Lifetime. You know the ones where the intended victim finally does something so incredibly stupid that she forfeits her right to live, and from that moment on you're rooting for the stalker. Of course, it rarely works out the way you want, but when it does, the feeling you get is... well, there's nothing else like it, other than, maybe, eating chocolate chip cookies. Oh, and I'm proudly anti-wildlife, both foreign and domestic, and anti-environment - especially foreign environments. I think Howard Stern put it best when he said, "If fifty percent of the population died tomorrow, I can live with that." And I feel the same about the other fifty percent, so together, we've pretty much got it all covered.

  1. You couldn't be worse than the court of law we must live under today. Our courts are corrupt and biased. What better compliments can you crown our gods in black robes? Not all, but way too many.

  2. TedWest says:

    You know, when I was transitioning into adulthood, I was excited about the prospects of thinking and doing things on my own. I figured that real adults, as opposed to the ones in my immediate family and neighborhood, got better and smarter with age – gained more wisdom, became more objective, more balanced, more outspoken about injustice, etc, etc, etc as Yul Brynner might say…
    Now I think I'm glad I didn't know the truth – that when most people turn 21, the learning stops and the bias festers, and injustice is what the other guy does to you and your beliefs. Otherwise, I might have become cynical – and that's the one thing Obama hates most..
