I agree with everything whoever wrote that column said as well. This is a worthwhile project where funds are distributed carefully and items bought where they can do the most good and be less exploited by Pharmaceuticals (sometimes).

*GWB:It’s almost Christmas and I want people to read my book. Is there anything really good about my administration I can highlight?

*Former staff writer who made him look good previously: Yes sir. It may take awhile and may not be ready for the book release though.

*GWB: Fine by me. I will on the book signing tour for my book so just let me know what you will be writing about.

…. months later…..

*FSWWMHLGP: I think I have it…the aids crisis was something positive and people can’t really see or remember or care that saying we helped found it had nothing to do with it being founded by the UN with a little support from us and backlash from Pharmaceuticals.

*GWB: Perfect. And didn’t we have a couple of kids come to the white house? Include that too!

*FSWWMHLGP: Of course and how many big words can I use?

*GWB: Use pepper and not too much salt ok?

*FSWWMHLGP: Well of course sir, you are always the decider, so I’ll have it ready for you to approve pronto!

And let’s not forget that GWB’s actual AIDS programs while in office tended to the born-again Christian and their approved abstinence efforts, and eschewed the more traditional and proven educational and, god-forbid, condom distribution programs. The man remains a self-serving hypocrite and the worst President ever with the possible exception of Andrew Johnson. The nation survived the latter; time will tell on the former.
