Bush the Smarter, whose wife famously called Hillary “something that rhymes with a witch” is decrying the lack of civility in politics.

While he seems to remember his times as “the good old days”, he is feeling sorry for the Whiner in Chief

President Obama “is entitled to civil treatment and intellectual honesty when it comes to critics.”

Then ironically

While he said he does not believe in personal name-calling, he singled out MSNBC personalities Keith Olbermann and Rachel Maddow calling them “sick puppies.”

“The way they treat my son and anyone who’s opposed to their point of view is just horrible,” Mr. Bush said.

And then came the best line:

With a chuckle, Mr. Bush said his son’s critics “weren’t singled out as much as they should have been.”

Like the guy who is now the only memorable thing from Obama’s wishy-washy healthcare speech. He got singled out to the tune of 4.4 million! (of course you need to carefully read several paragraphs of the CNN story to find out that Joe Wilson raised 2.7 of it while his Democratic opponent only 1,7! No wonder Michelle Obama is punishing the state with a no show!

While Poppy Bush mentioned he had his differences with Obama which he won’t express, it’s interesting that he was found for this interview, hosting Mr. Obama at a volunteerism event on the Texas A & M campus.

Which is one sighting of the official meme to be executed by Hollywood according to this

“from October 19-25, more than 60 network TV shows [will] spotlight the power and personal benefits of service,” and that this “unprecedented block of TV programming is the first wave of a multi-year ‘I Participate’ campaign.”

I noticed a weird reference in “Flash forward” – when a woman asks a priest for  help to atone for something she didn’t do yet, and is given some information on volunteer groups.

I personally volunteered and support the concept, but the idea of deliberate message peppering from the White House is a creepy deja vu.

Ceausescu was doing it as well – not through memos – but outright through speeches. He would spout some specific slogans, the directive that they be spread, and the next day they were out there – in poems, short stories, movies and books.

Oh, and his critics didn’t get “singled out”. They got – disappeared.
