Oh, the pain! The shame! And as befits His Immense Narcissism, the Prom King, 
as he reflects in and on his self-proclaimed glories, this 
obsessive-compulsive combination of will and guilt only has to do with his being caught in 
flagrante delicto in a sexual tryst, while his failure to act in Rwanda passes in 
silence over a half-million corpses --  oops: really sorry about that; but 
there flows from this crucible of character-testing the alchemical proof of his

The bombing of civilians means nothing, for the ends were pure and so their 
sacrifice is redeemed in blood. (Is this why Michael Moore endorsed Gen. Wesley

children dead each month for the years of the Clinton-era blockade that softened up 
Iraq for Bush's invasion.

hole deeper. They float in the wading pools of deep-think, adrift in a vat of 
the universal hormone, preposterone-TM, immune to their crimes and the sorrows 
they create.
