This Side of Sanity



George W. Bush

    Normally we wouldn’t have Right Wing Christian Republican poetry, but sometimes it helps to understand the “thinking processes” of those who want to oppress women. Washington Post writer Richard Thompson arranged quotations from actual George W. Bush speeches to make a poem:

Make the Pie Higher

by George W. Bush
(words arranged by Richard Thompson)

I think we all agree, the past is over.
This is still a dangerous world.
It’s a world of madmen and uncertainty
and potential mental losses.

Rarely is the question asked
“Is our children learning?”
“Will the highways of the Internet become more few?”
“Do you have Blacks in Brazil?”
“Why dont’t the French have a word for ‘entrepreneur’?”

How many hands have I shaked?
They misunderestimate me.
I am a pitbull on the pant leg of opportunity.
I know that the human being and the fish can coexist.

Families is where our nation finds hope,
where our wings take dream.

Put food on your family!
Knock down the toll booth!
Make the economy gooder!
Vulcanize society!
Make the pie higher! Make the pie higher!
