Gibson A Moonbat?!?

Apocalypto is a new a film by star and director Mel Gibson that hits theaters later this year.

It dramatizes the decline of the Maya kingdom and the slaughter of thousands in human sacrifices in the hopes of saving the nation from collapse.

Gibson says that he was inspired by present day American politics, claiming that the Bush Administration maintains power by playing on the nation's insecurities.

As he says in the British film magazine Hotdog: "The fear-mongering we depict in the film reminds me of President Bush and his guys."

So we have a half-dozen military generals attacking the administration (i.e. the Secretery of Defense), primarily because they wanted a larger, stomping footprint in Iraq.

We have the Right still angry about a whole bunch of stuff like Bush's failure to save Terry Schiavo, his bizzare insouciance about Mexican multitudes pouring into the American Southwest unencumbered by trivialities of passports and security checks, and his and poppy's chumminess with the Clinton's (and with Bill and Poppy's tsunami and Katrina lovefest, Dubya's flippant and grinning acquiescence about "Bush-Clinton, Bush-Clinton" regarding Hillary's presidential prospects, and Hillary's recent flatteries for the president all coinciding with the precipitous drop in Bush's approvals due to the splintering of the conservative base, it appears the Clinton Curse is alive and well-- and allow Republicus to resurrect the charge that Bush is a moron).

And now we have Mel Gibson spouting Daily Kos stuff (which is a bad sign).

The question Republicus has is: Since Bush is so nice to Clinton, and since he angered a few retired military-establishment generals who wanted more tanks and boots (and collateral damage) in Iraq, and also angered conservative, "Christo-fascist" anti-euthanasianists, and also angered conservative, "xenophobic anti-immigrant racists," and angered the despised conservative-Catholic Mel Gibson to boot, why do Leftist Bush-haters still hate Bush?

The "Winner"

Zacarias Moussaoui--the self-confessed (and boastful) 9/11 co-conspirator--was transported by a team of deputy U.S. Marshals late Friday night from a Virginia detention center to Florence, Colorado, where he started serving his six consecutive life sentences--without the possibility of release-- early this morning at the U.S. "Supermax" Penitentiary.

On being hauled off, he crowed: "I win, America, you lose."

Republicus is pretty sure he's not going to find 70 virgins in the klink he's going to.
