George, maybe cocaine might ease the pain. That “thumping” you suffered last week must smart something bad. None of the guys you stumped for during the campaign won, and you lost both houses of Congress. That's got to hurt.

What am I saying?  I'm not saying anything.

I'm just saying that you seem to have a predisposition to lying. What is it you said about your Defense Secretary Donald H. Rumsfeld during the campaign? Yes, that he was doing a “fantastic” job and would remain your man till the end of your administration. I'm not in Washington and I don't know how things work over there, but given the fact that you announced Rumsfeld's “resignation” and Robert Gate's nomination the day after the “thumping” gives me pause. Pause to think that you were lying. In fact you admitted so much by saying you did not want to “inject a major decision about this war in the final days of a campaign” and the only way to move beyond the Rumsfeld question posed to you by reporters was to “give you that answer.”

You've also lied to us about Iraq. Remember you justified the invasion of Iraq with claims that Saddam Hussein possessed weapons of mass destruction? That was not true. Now with a new Democratic Congress in place you suddenly realize that they might not take kindly to that lie and hold you accountable. Ouch, that has to call for a drink, at least.

And now with your new show about to start the “George & Nancy Song & Dance Show”, I can only think you wish you were back in Texas with the twins. You don't like speaker-elect Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) or really any of her friends, such as openly gay Representative Barney Frank (D-Mass). In fact during the campaign you implied that together they would push a gay agenda. Now, you kinda like the gal, ha?

Speaking of the homosexual threat, you must be reeling over that too. I mean your homophobic pals Rick Santorum (R- PA), John Hostettler (R-IN), and Ken Blackwell (R- OH) are no longer around to justify your anti-gay rhetoric. Of the 225 candidates endorsed by the Human Rights Campaign, 92% won their seat. That's over 200 gay-friendly officials. You must be thinking, is it possible the negative consequences of political gains at the expense of gays and lesbians have come home to roost?

Maybe cocaine might ease the pain, that's all I'm saying.
