Comic-Horror Relief: Ask Karen Hughes, Now On Yahoo!
Yahoo has a relatively new series called 'Talk to Power' where you can send a question in to someone who has it, and they're supposed to not ignore you. I've never stopped into it before, but because of the guest tonight I couldn't resist. Karen Hughes is a long-time Boosh political advisor, as responsible as anyone for promoting him and putting this country through hell, and closer to him in some ways than even Karl Rove (reports disagree, but Karl may lack a vagina). A recent high point in her career was being appointed Good Will Ambassador to the Mid-East, which featured her lecturing burkha-wearing housewives in Afghanistan, Iraq, and Saudi Arabia on their need to rise up against The Man. Synopsis: this is one fucked-up Texas chick. Now, the series discussions are not live, it's more like a blog format where your question comes up in sequence. Here are the first five questions as they appeared, unedited:
How many more Iraqi children will have to die before President Bush/Vice President Chaney agree that the U.S. has made a terrible mistake invading Iraq?Posted by this4utoo on Tue, Nov 21, 2006 7:55 PM ETWhat has gone wrong with the Bush Administration and their lofty goals? Could it be that "absolute power corrupts absolutely". Please don't give me the old Republican line we've heard for so long and then just repeated a thousand times until people start believing it. It seems Mr. Cheney has used and abused his power in the white house. What do you think?Posted by firstname.lastname@example.org on Tue, Nov 21, 2006 8:05 PM ETP.S. I forgot that you asked me to include some personal items. I'm a 62 white divorced female still working - probably will until I drop. I have 2 children and 2 grand children (the best)Posted by email@example.com on Tue, Nov 21, 2006 8:07 PM ETWe love you in Austin! How can we will back the Whitehouse in 2008? Can we simply veto every bill from Democrats for the next two years?Posted by craigxer on Tue, Nov 21, 2006 8:09 PM ETHow can you sleep at night knowing that you were instrumental in creating this monster of an adminstration that, not content to invade other countries and murder countless thousands, but then spends enormous amounts of time and effort to destroy America from within, by eviscerating the Constitution one right at a time? I think you are despicable. Mother, veteran, patriot, doctor, AmericanPosted by annsimun on Tue, Nov 21, 2006 8:14 PM ET
