Looks like George Bush will be in the area all day today. Yay, lucky me!
First the Prez will tour a nuclear power plant in suburban Philly and try to tell us how if we don't accept his radioactive ideas then the terrorists will have won. Oy!
Later on, the Bush motorcade will head downtown to raise money for Congressmen Gerlach and Fitzpatrick at the Sheraton City Center. I wasn't invited but that's okay, I don't wanna pay $1ooo just to raise money for two incompetent Republican Congressmen or to see our incompetent president. (Naturally I'll be outside protesting loudly. Wanna join me? Be at Love Park (see pic) at 16th and JFK Blvd. at 4pm! Map)
The silver lining is this: Bush's timing couldn't be better. For Democrats, I mean.
Here's the deal. We all know Bush travels with a huge motorade which includes his massive security detail, media, local law enforcement, assistants, et al. Now, this practically guarentees traffic tie ups all over town for the entire duration of today's rushhour. And local voters will be pissed. I believe that most folks are more sensitive to being caught on Interstate 95 in a nasty traffic jam than they are to say, the Iraq War. Sad but true.
Anyway, imagine being on your way home from work and traffic is elbow-to-asshole all the way home. Thanks to the President and the Republican Comgressmen he's pimping, your commute home was a nightmare. And you're reminded of this fact every 10 minutes on the traffic report.
I reckon folks who might still be "on the fence" with Bush and his lapdog congress will have a chance to contemplate their feelings about Bush Co. while STUCK IN A TRAFFIC JAM!.
It's a perfect metaphor.
