All Hail

See, here's how democracy works: When you vote someone into office, from that moment forward you lose all voice in how that person makes decisions, and what decisions he makes. In fact, even if that person commits crimes, including treason, the only recourse you have is to vote that person out of office, because that's the only "accountability moment" that exists in a democracy. Get it?
Bush Says Election Ratified Iraq Policy

President Bush said the public's decision to reelect him was a ratification of his approach toward Iraq and that there was no reason to hold any administration officials accountable for mistakes or misjudgments in prewar planning or managing the violent aftermath.

"We had an accountability moment, and that's called the 2004 elections," Bush said in an interview with The Washington Post. "The American people listened to different assessments made about what was taking place in Iraq, and they looked at the two candidates, and chose me."
All hail the Black Emperor, and his ex cathedra mandate from a slim majority of deeply deluded Americans that renders him immune from accountability from this moment on, since he cannot run for re-election. Or so I'd like to think. No decision is now open to question, no lie should be exposed, no hypocrisy uncovered, because THE PEOPLE HAVE SPOKEN. Got it? MAN-DATE! Now, shut up, stop writing your representatives, and pick up a gun. Them insurgents need repressin'. You don't like it? You get to say so in four years. Maybe. Unless Bush makes enough infallible decisions betwen now and then to render that question moot.
