Lessons Learned from a Texan Insurgency

Lessons Learned from a Texan Insurgency

By John Lillpop

Due primarily to America’s problems in Iraq, President Bush has seen his credibility and reputation deteriorate significantly throughout the world. Once feared by our enemies, Bush is now the object of public ridicule and scorn dished out by tinhorn despots.

Mahmoud Ahmadinejad openly mocks Bush and dares him to "Stop me if you can" when it comes to uranium centrifuges and Iran’s "right" to go nuclear.

Korean madman Kim Jong Il launches a dramatic fireworks show on July 4, defiantly upstaging America’s Independence Day celebration.

Venezuela’s Hugo Chavez feigns smelling sulfur while addressing the United Nations, and jokes that the odor can be traced to the presence of the devil, AKA President Bush, in New York a day earlier.

However, Saddam Hussein’s hanging may precipitate an attitude adjustment in tyrants guilty of "misundersestimating" Bush. Indeed, a new message is being sent, loud, and clear.

That message: Don’t Mess with Texans! * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

Meanwhile, Democrats about to take over Washington, D.C. next week are already spinning the execution of Saddam Hussein so as to deny any credit for the tyrant’s demise to President Bush.

Speaker-elect Nancy Pelosi, reached at a Botox recovery clinic for repeat offenders in San Francisco, said, “Remember, this was an act by a free and Democratic Iraqi people. President Bush was irrelevant.”

Incoming Senate majority leader Harry Reid, speaking from a ring side seat (gifted to him by the Nevada Gaming Commission) at a boxing match, echoed the sentiments of Pelosi and added, “Forget George Bush. Saddam’s end came about as the result of Iraqi jurisprudence.”

Perhaps Pelosi and Reid are right. But how do you explain the following label, in Spanish, on the hangman’s noose:

“Made in Crawford, Texas for Dubya by good hearted, hard worked illegal aliens.”?
