Well, let's not focus on the word 'wonderous', l'il ZEN'ers. It's time to start marking the calendar and focus on what Bush the Lesser will be doing after whatever event marks the end of his sad, sociopathic reign of Terror, War For Terror, as you read here in September 2006?
Bush could actually stay in office until his mandate ends, in January 2009. Two years, and two weeks more...
He could be gone sooner than that, but ZENmud neither preaches violence, nor presumes that the Good Democrats in Power now can battle a media-tsunami of anti-anti-Bush rantings, insinuations and reliance on the perpetrations of false accusations fermented on the "conservative street", and broadcast like methane-producing agribusiness in such great states as Indiana, or Ohio.
But I humbly ask you, faithful growing readership: What WILL Bush do after he leaves the Oval Office?
Carry baggage in Baghdad?
Plant peanuts in Paraguay?
Count cash in the Caymans?
Do ZENistas wonder where the fortune is stashed, which obviously has been pilfered from the US Treasury during the Great Republican Decade?
Do we presume it lies in banks between Zurich, Geneva and the Cayman Islands?
Which private contractor will win the Secret Service contract to double the effective bodyguard contigent that Bush' amazingly narrow popularity, remaining now at nearly-record LOW levels (USA Today poll)?
Rod, Mr. Serling, what can you tell us?
through another dimension: a dimension not only of sight and sound, but of mind. A journey into a wonderous land whose boundaries are that of that of imagination - there's a signpost up ahead! Your next stop: the Twilight Zone!"
