What the bleep does Bush know?
One of the benefits of being a liberal is that one can be free to ask all sorts of questions – questions that the Republican traditions just don’t allow. We can question authority, explore the forgotten nooks of important issues, and reform our lives free of the orthodoxies that plague devotees of right wing ideologies.
Sometimes, asking questions is an important thing all in itself. I was inspired by the question I saw on a cinema marquee today, the title of a movie popular among New Age folks: What the Bleep Do We Know?
I wondered, what the sequels to this movie will be called. What the Bleep is He Talking About? Who the Bleep Was that I Saw You With Last Night? Where the Bleep Did I Put the Keys? What the Bleep Are You Doing With That Sausage?
I’ll tell you, just by imagining these movies, my mind was open to a whole new level of consciousness. I started to ask questions about the recent direction of our nation. Why the bleep did 51% of voters choose Bush? What kind of bleeping idiots do the Republicans take us for? What the bleep happened to the United States Constitution? When the bleep will this stupid war stop? Most importantly: What the bleep does Bush know?
Heavy duty mystical questions all, but the problem with these questions, like all mystical questions, is that they’re asking for the kind of bleeping information that we’re never going to know. Under the thumb of Republican rule, ignorance is a bleeping pain in the ass.
