What is the use of repeating all that stuff, if you don't explain it as you go on? -
Mock Turtle: Alice in Wonderland
And what a party it was! It actually made page ten of the NY Times, and that’s pretty impressive nowadays for anything involving George Bush’s war. Did you happen to see the guest list? Wow! Really wow!
The folks on the guest list were the most powerful and possibly the best and the brightest ever to work alongside American presidents going back nearly half a century. These dignified men and women were 13 former secretaries of state and defense, all of whom undeniably had a vast range of experience and knowledge about war and peace. They came to share what they knew. But they came to Wonderland.
Oh, what a lovely photo op it turned out to be: The Hatter, Dick Cheney, Donald Rumsfeld and Condoleezza Rice surrounded by history. The names were so terribly impressive: Powell, Cohen, Albright, McNamara, Schlesinger, Schultz, Haig, Carlucci, Perry, Brown, Eagleburger and Baker. They had served presidents from JFK to their present host. These were the real heavyweights of government. They came to pass on their wisdom and their expertise in a time of terrible chaos.
[b]They came for tea, but they got baloney.
It was an all inclusive bipartisan bash. The Mad Hatter
had run into really big trouble in Iraq and things were getting worse. He needed applause from all sides amid the chaos. He needed approval from people of stature amid the bloodshed. So he threw a party, and the big wigs came. How important he must have felt. Wow!
might actually have consulted with his guests. He might actually have asked them for advice and direction. He might have actually benefited from their combined expertise, but he didn’t. Being mad, he brought them to his party to con them for nearly forty minutes. He touted his policies and his stay-the-course philosophy and entertained his guests with an upbeat assessment of his disastrous and failed war. It was truly tasteless baloney. And they refused to applaud.
Horror of horrors, Colin Powell played the Dormouse
. He sat quietly, never uttering a single word. More brazenly, Madeline Albright played Alice
and dared to question the Hatter
about his foreign policy! Not the way to go, Alice. The Hatter
was not pleased.
In fact, after his forty minute fairy tale about Iraq, the Hatter allowed less than ten minutes of questions. TEN MINUTES! Surrounded by the most experienced members of presidential cabinets in recent history, the Hatter listened to less than ten minutes of their questions and then walked out!
Did you hear this on the news? Did you see any editorials about it in the major press? Nah. Here’s the full article. What a total disaster we have in the White House…
