So, Alan Greenspan, the former chairman of the Federal Reserve, has “written” a book in which he says that he believes the war in Iraq was really all about oil. In another shocking revelation, he also says that water is wet.
Kidding aside, I’m getting really REALLY tired of these fucking Republicans leveling with the public about all the scummy shit that’s been done in the name of the American public AFTER they leave public serve and get a hefty publishing advance or are worried about how history will judge them. Yes, I’m looking at you, Colin Powell.
Seriously, how do these people sleep at night, knowing that they could have told America what was going on but they kept their mouths shut because, at the time, it was better for their careers?
In a just world, all of these honest-only-when-it-pays fuckers would go on some kind of Scumbag Picnic, driven there in a rickety school bus along a road on the edge of a cliff high above the ocean by a meth addict overdue for his dose. Oops, he missed the sharp curve. Darn the luck! Ah, but I digress.
Hey, Greenspan! I realize it won’t be long now before the Icy Grip of Death grabs you by the balls and drags you into the grave but you might consider taking a moment out of your busy book-selling schedule to apologize to the people of America and the world for keeping your geriatric jaw shut about what you knew about the “Battle for Iraq” (as my local Fox affiliate’s news show calls it). Doesn’t it ever bother you, Alan, when you sit down to cut into your nice filet mignon and you see all that blood on your hands? All the book royalties in the world won’t make it go away. Try washing some of it off with TRUTH, Old Man.
