(Satirical Review) Scott Ott, over at ScrappleFace once again out does himself in the following snippet where he brings out the best in his satrical reporting skills. Hope some folks here can at least step back and take this in without starting another mud slinging contest.
Lack of Bush Eloquence Imperils Hurricane Victims
by Scott Ott
(Biloxi)(2005-09-01) — Fears increased today among hundreds of thousands of refugees from the hurricane-ravaged gulf coast as they faced a Labor Day weekend with little hope of an eloquent speech from President George Bush.
As today's New York Times editorial indicated, the president 'gave one of the worst speeches of his life yesterday, especially given the level of national distress and the need for words of consolation and wisdom'.
One New Orleans man, currently living in the 'Plaza End Zone' section of the Superdome as he awaits news of his missing family members, said, 'I can survive for some time with little water, no food and highly unsanitary conditions...but if I don't hear some poetic words of comfort and stirring verbal imagery from the president pretty soon, I'm a goner.'
A White House spokesman said additional speech writers have been flown in to accelerate completion of 'a magnificent, almost-Clintonesque display of rhetorical compassion.' However, it could take up to a week of pronunciation rehearsal before the president is ready to deliver the speech to the nation." — Scott Ott / ScrappleFace
Ok...a submission of blogcriticing just for the sake of balance and to get some folks at this site to lighten up. ScrappleFace may lean a bit to the right, but Scott, like may satirists, are know to step back from all the mindless political nonsense and inject some introspective humor into the political cesspool on occasion.
We try for some balance and humor at ZZ N&S as well... it allows one to take the blinders off and take more of a Zen and centrist approach to life :) The problems on this planet are really inconsequential in the scheme of things...
