It's not often I find myself shouting at the TV screen, but last night was definitely one of those nights. Speaking about the immigration bill that has sparked nationwide protests, Bush acted like a giddy teenage girl while talking about the "tamper-proof" identification cards that will be given to temporary workers.
I simply chuckled to myself at his first mention of the cards, but as he kept repeating the words "tamper-proof," my blood started to boil. Finally, after the fifth or sixth mention, I was on my feet.
"What fucking planet are you on, Georgie?!" I yelled. "Tamper-proof ID cards my ass! It's about as hard to tamper with an ID as it is to counterfeit money! I'll bet your cards aren't on the street for a full day before one is 'adjusted' to fit someone's needs! What a jackass!"
Realizing that Georgie's stupidity is nothing new, I calmed down and took my seat again. I mean, hell, living in Texas, I've had to put up with this man for half of my life. I shouldn't be surprised at his lack of common sense.
I should have changed the channel, though, because when he started talking about how easy it will be for cardholders to go back and forth across the border, I was right back on my feet again.
"Oh, come on! I've crossed the border, and even as a citizen with a valid ID, I didn't find it to be an easy or pleasant experience! Yeah, sure Georgie, it may make it easier crossing if they hire a COYOTE to bring them back! Fuck!"
I don't know how the hell he does it, but Georgie certainly has mastered the art of bringing the bitch out of me!
