Lost It...

Well, Bush, I lost my whole entry today. Gone. In the tap of a key, and I don't even know which one, that's how computer-savvy I am. An hour's worth of careful thought and writing. Too bad. You might have enjoyed it.

The entry was called "What's in the Daily News? (with apologies to Frank Sinatra, Damon Runyon, et al.)" and it was a whole spoof on that song from "Guys and Dolls." I simply gathered headlines from the newspapers and listed them in no particular order, with the refrain, "That's what's in the Daily News." Your Brownie turning tail and ratting on you, Bush. Your feds confiscating cheap drugs bought by senior citizens in Canada. The Abramoff scandals. The GOP in trouble. More chaos and killing in Iraq. Hamas. The misuse of FEMA funds. The disappearance of billions of reconstruction dollars in Iraq. The cowardly deal on the Patriot Act renewal. Your plan to auction 300,000 acres of our national land to fund rural schools and roads. This guy going around the country preaching the denial of science to our schoolkids, and promoting "creationism" in its place...

So that's what was in the Daily News. Sorry it got lost. It's not so much fun this way, Bush, but I expect you get the picture. Disaster, betrayal, mismanagement, incompetence everywhere. A litany of lies, deceptions, mistakes and pratfalls. The whole house of cards collapsing, Bush. To mix metaphors, it's a shipwreck. With you at the helm.

But then I'm hardly one to talk. I can't even control my own damn computer. Have a good weekend.

Aww, we've all done it:). It would have been nice to see, but you always do such a wonderful job of writing, you can be forgiven for your little digital mistake. Maybe it was meant to be, too good for the masses lol:). Have a good day anyway Peter.
