London - (ReUterus): To all those who have ever wondered if buying the Sunday Times is a bargain due to its primary appeal as a cost-effective alternative to cat litter, the answer surely came today.
It's not just feline excrement that is easily soaked up by this rag but human gullibility on a scale usually reserved for more notorious wingnut papers such as the Sunday Fascist and its soul-mate tabloid the Fascist on Sunday.
Writing in the UK's top Murdochian excuse for a quality broadsheet this weekend columnist Andrew Sullivan stunned even the most jaded political anaylsts of the 21st century by describing George W Bush as a 'moderate, congenial and compassionate Republican'.
His conjecture that Karl Rove is no Machiavellian mentor is such a no brainer that to devote an entire column to this intellectual coup de foudre is like boasting of an E grade in GCSE English on an application form for the post of Chancellor of Oxford University.
Sullivan's premise describing a deliberate deviation from the traditional Republican centrist base to an all-embracing TheoCon position misses such a large chunk of recorded cold war role play that one is left stunned at the jejune shallowness necessary to write for the Murdochs today.
Either that or his intellect is incapable of assimilating pre-internet archives from the late Clinton era that Alberto Gonzales so cunningly entrusted to the eternal White House recycling bin by banning access to pre-Bush2 governmental records.
But weep not for Sullivan and his amoeba-sized brain.
For all those who remember it 1999 was the year the US Supreme Court reviewed classified NATO military intelligence documents on the KGB careers of Roland Reagan and George Bush Senior.
These showed the mercenary roles these two undertook around the time of JFK's 1963 assassination to protect the child molesting secrets of Pope Pius XII.
And how the Republican father/son combo of Bush Senior and Bush Junior was recognised as siblings fathered by the mobster Pontif who married Junior's mother on orders from Stalin.
Bush Senior's so-called centrist Republican position was purely smoke and mirrors. At the White House he was always enabled by the P2 Lodge in it protectionist goal of fundamentalist zealotry. The British son born to him by Margaret Thatcher was the IRA's top hitman and bomb-maker for over 30 years. The daughter born to him by Harold Wilson's secretary Marcia Williams became Princess Diana.
For Bush Junior TheoCon leaders are the bread and butter of his mobster life, and prompted one US Supreme Court judge to describe him as 'one of the most rabidly violent, psychopathic perverts ever to have crawled his way into public high office'.
My Maine Coon agrees, having picked Sullivan's rant over a number of tempting alternatives on which to leave the feline equivalent of a "You must be f***ing joking mate" today.
