Congratulations President Bush!

The second part of your plan to ignite the passions of the country and incite Americans to violence using a bait and switch model is working! The first part of the plan: blame Iraq for 9/11, when that is refuted just claim Iraq has WMD. If anyone points out fallacies in your argument you simply out someone in their family (either from the closet or CIA). If anyone argues that Saudi Arabia provided the most terrorists rely on American’s notable lack of knowledge of geography and tell them that Iraq is actually Saudi Arabia. Americans won’t know for years that we attacked the wrong country.

Second part of the plan: Using a modified trickle down model to propagandize kindergarteners. (It’s voodoo economics but with crayons instead of money.) My six year old just brought home a picture of her as a soldier AKA “community helper.” She is standing over a dead bad guy who is depicted with Xs on his eyes. She is protecting people from what I think is a bomb. Perhaps we should just sign her up for West Point now.

She told me she wanted to be a soldier before and I didn’t say anything because I assume she’ll outgrow it and I want her to believe that she can do anything. When I told my husband what Lizzy said he assumed I had launched into a diatribe against Bush, the war, and Republicans for good measure. Then he said that she would probably be a good soldier. WHAT!?! That’s not the point! Give Liz a few years and she could probably take both of us.

The phase where Lizzy wanted to be a fireman passed. I assume this will too. Internet, here is evidence to prove we are not all for gun control in Massachusetts.

A Jewish lawyer was troubled by the way his son turned out, and went to see his Rabbi about it. "I brought him up in the faith, gave him a very expensive bar mitzvah, cost me a fortune to educate him. Then he tells me last week he has decided to be a Christian. Rabbi... where did I go wrong?"

"Funny you should come to me," said the Rabbi. "Like you, I, too, brought my boy up in the faith, put him through University, cost me a fortune, then one day he comes and tells me he has decided to become a Christian."

"What did you do?" asked the lawyer. "I turned to God for the answer," replied the rabbi.

"And what did he say?"

He said, "Funny you should come to me..."

Sometimes, children don't turnout the way you want. It could be worse!
