It seems that in terms of Beastliness, we are on a new Information Age low with Shrub. The man is an incredible combination of stupidity and pure evil: in a strange way, his stupidity has helped him, by masking what a malignant cynic he is. Give him this much: as stupid as he is, he is at least smart enough to know to serve his masters, and so far he has done that very well, at the expense of everyone else. The policies of "president" Bush have barely been implemented, and already the writing is on the wall. After merely 100 days of Sodomization by the Bush mob, it is clear - whether by economic policy, energy policy, environmental policy or "law and order" - that we are screwed.
The fact that this sorry excuse for a man has no business posing as president makes his destructive policies even more appalling. Make no bones about it, the Beast known as Shrub is going to be causing damage even past the four years he and his cohorts in crime will thieve any pathetic crumbs of democratic rule we have left.
Still, Shrub couldn't have pulled this whole damn thing off alone: he's nowhere near as smart to do that. That's why the winner here is a group award: it goes not merely to Dubya, but all the "president's" kreeps who helped install the swindle.
Which leads us to the worst participants in the Bush swindle: the American public, who pathetically bowed in cowardice in the face of fraud. It shouldn't be surprising that so far, Shrub and his gang of swine have consistently pushed such a destructive agenda. Authority only tries what it can get away with. When the American public announced with its own spineless apathy that they really didn't care if their government was stolen in a coup d'etat, it was an invitation for us to be shafted. Needless to say, Bush and co. have take full advantage of this invitation, and likely will continue to for years to come.
In the unlikely event that Shrub and co. can no longer fill their duties as Beast of the Year (such as doing something shockingly decent), Ariel Sharon is ready to take over the crown. Rest assured the BOTY trophy is in good hands either way, as Sharon has been the prime manipulator and provocateur in tensions surrounding the Middle East, tensions which could explode into a World War to end all World Wars. The rage surrounding Sharon in the Arab world is well deserved and easy to understand: having earned the nickname "The Butcher of Beirut" for his thuggery, Sharon would be labeled a terrorist is he came from any other Middle Eastern nation. Despite (or perhaps because of) his actions, Sharon has been awarded the office of Prime Minister, proving that Israeli public is as easily manipulated as the American public is.
If, on the unlikely event that both the Shrub thieves and Sharon can't perform their Beastly duties, we always have Jacques Nasser to fall back on. Rest assured Nasser will continue to do all he can to earn his Beastly honors.
