Mr. President, The War Isn't About You - Or Golf

Keith Olbermann Special Comment



Then came Mr. Bush’s final blow to our nation’s solar plexus, his last re-opening of our common wounds, his last remark that makes the rest of us question not merely his leadership or his judgment but his very suitably to remain in office.

Mr. President,” he was asked, “you haven’t been golfing in recent years. Is that related to Iraq?

Yes,” began perhaps the most startling reply of this nightmarish blight on our lives as Americans — on our history.

It really is. I don’t want some mom whose son may have recently died, to see the Commander-in-Chief playing golf.  I feel I owe it to the families to be as — to be in solidarity as best as I can with them. And I think playing golf during a war just sends the wrong signal.

Golf, sir?

Golf sends the wrong signal to the grieving families of our men and women butchered in Iraq?

Do you think these families, Mr. Bush — their lives blighted forever — care about you playing golf?

Do you think, sir, they care about you?

You, Mr. Bush, let their sons and daughters be killed.

Sir, to show your solidarity with them - you gave up golf?

Sir, to show your solidarity with them — you didn’t give up your pursuit of this insurance-scam, profiteering, morally and financially bankrupting war.

Sir, to show your solidarity with them — you didn’t even give up talking about Iraq — a subject about which you have incessantly proved without pause or backwards glance, that you may literally be the least informed person in the world?

Sir, to show your solidarity with them, you didn’t give up your presidency?

In your own words — “solidarity as best as I can” — is to stop a game? That is the “best” you can?

4,000 Americans give up their lives and your sacrifice was to give up golf!


Not “gulf” — golf.

And still it gets worse.

Because it proves that the President’s unendurable sacrifice, his unbearable pain, the suspension of getting to hit a stick with a ball, was not even his own damned idea.

Mr. President, was there a particular moment or incident that brought you to that decision, or how did you come to that?

I remember when de Mello, who was at the U.N., got killed in Baghdad as a result of these murderers taking this good man’s life.  And I was playing golf — I think I was in central Texas — and they pulled me off the golf course and I said, it’s just not worth it any more to do.”

Your one, tone-deaf, arrogant, pathetic, embarrassing gesture, and you didn’t even think of it yourself?

The great Bushian sacrifice — an Army private loses a leg, a Marine loses half his skull, four thousand of their brothers and sisters lose their lives, you lose golf… and they have to pull you off the golf course to get you to just do that?

If it’s even true…

Apart from your medical files, which dutifully record your torn calf muscle and the knee pain which forced you to give up running at the same time — coincidence, no doubt — the bombing in Baghdad which killed Sergio Vieira de Mello of the U-N… and interrupted your round of golf, was on August 19th, 2003.

Yet there is an Associated Press account of you playing golf as late as Columbus Day of that year — October 13th — nearly two months later.

Mr. Bush, I hate to break it to you, six-and-a-half years after you yoked this nation and your place in history to the wrong war, in the wrong place, against the wrong people but the war in Iraq is Not. About. You.

It is not, Mr. Bush, about your grief when American after American comes home in a box.

It is not, Mr. Bush, about what your addled brain has produced in the way of paranoid delusions of risks that do not exist, ready to be activated if some Democrat, and not your twin Mr. McCain succeeds you.

The war in Iraq — your war, Mr. Bush — is about how you accomplished the derangement of two nations, and how you helped funnel billions of taxpayer dollars to lascivious and perennially thirsty corporations like Halliburton and Blackwater, and how you sent 4,000 Americans to their deaths — for nothing.

It is not, Mr. Bush, about your golf game!

And, sir, if you have any hopes that next January 20th will not be celebrated as a day of soul-wrenching, heart-felt Thanksgiving, because your faithless stewardship of this presidency will have finally come to a merciful end, this last piece of advice:

When somebody asks you, sir, about Democrats who must now pull this country back from the abyss you have placed us at…

When somebody asks you, sir, about the cooked books and faked threats you foisted on a sincere and frightened nation…

When somebody asks you, sir, about your gallant, noble, self-abnegating sacrifice of your golf game so as to soothe the families of the war dead…

This advice, Mr. Bush…

Shut the hell up!

Cadavre Exquis #01 : Across The Continents


"On commence pour ce premier numéro par un cri d’amour lancé à la face du monde, et un tracklisting qui bondit des bas-fonds latinos de Harlem aux faubourgs de Luanda en Angola, des émigrés caribéens de Londres aux rappeurs d’Istanbul. Et qui s’installe peu à peu en Afrique, sous le regard bienveillant de David Byrne, évidemment." [F]

Mapping London

"Mapping London is a short film expressing the notion of myself as the transformed Londoner. Moving from a small village to the city almost two years ago I express how London draws you in and makes you a component so rapidly. The film demonstrates everyday repeated parts of my life literally ‘mapping our London’. I represent my unconscious mind ignoring the mundane and ordinary that was once seen through tourist eyes."[F]

The Proposition #2

Sure is pretty!

You can never get your fill of nature, Samuel.
To be surrounded by it is to be stilled.
It salves the heart.
The mountains, the trees,the endless plains.

The moon, the myriad of stars.
Every man can be made quiet and complete.

Even the lowliest misanthrope or the most wretched of sinners.

Toni,Camacho ... Sven

"Ó Sven... tu tem juízo, pá. Tu tens uma família. Tu tens um currículo. Já cá estiveste duas vezes e a coisa correu tão bem... Não borres a pintura toda. Vai mas é lá p'rá Inglaterra, lá é que a libra é valiosa. O que lá vai, já foi, a gente agradece muito, mas pensa bem no que aconteceu ao Toni... hu-hrum... ao Camacho, ao Glória, até ao Gutman! Isto é um clube de ingratos, gente de memória curta e lenços brancos prontos a saltar..."Diego Armés
