    Satire or mockery?

    Here is a clever idea about the Bush administration. Over the course of the last four years, while carrying out the extreme policies of the Neocons*, this administration has created huge long-term problems in many areas. If Kerry is elected, these problems will require much energy from the new administration just to ameliorate or bring back to balance government agencies, policies, etc. Will Kerry be able to accomplish much new while doing this? I don't know. I refer to this as the Bushies' Scorched Earth policy.

    Remember when the Bush admin moved into the White House? There were all these rumors about how the petulant Clinton/Gore staffers vandalized the place, carving obscene words in the desks and walls, smashing equiptment, etc. Of course these rumors were contradicted by the GAO (Government Accounting Office) report issued in June, 2002. The 220 page PDF version is here (kinda big). The report seems to indicate that trash and damage was mostly about the same as other transitions. Well, except for those 50-100 keyboards with the damaged "W" key...

    *I prefer the terms Radical Reactionaries, or Radreacs, and the New Fascists, Neofasces. (My, now isn't that rude of me!)
