A band of Texans and mercenaries from other territories barricaded themselves into a mission northern Mexico and decided that they would commit mass suicide rather than allow Mexicans to keep their land.
Texan Worst president Ever George Walker Bush seems to have an Alamo on the mind these days. With the worst approval rating of any President in history, a disaster of a war, an economy that makes the war look good and more scandals than a train load of Clintons could create, Bush is ready to veto Democratic legislation that would grant war veterans greater benefits, rescue for near homeless homeowners facing foreclosure, a sane stop to the flushing of US lives and dollars down the Iraqi drain and a farm bill to support America's food producers.
Bush and suicidal Republicans have barricaded themselves into the illusory Mission Accomplished and are sharpening their Jim Bowey knives preparing for their last stand. Texas historian, Notaman Standin reminds us that the Alamo turned into a graveyard. Generalissimo Santa Nancy Pelosi is said to be hungrily rubbing her hands together as she itches for the fight.
