Dear Mr. Bush,
Boy, do I feel your pain.
Why are people always dredging up what you did a decade, even two or three
decades ago? After all, Henry Hyde and Bob Livingston were still enjoying
"youthful indiscretions" at our age! And what about those in
congress who "experimented" with drugs? (You and I just abused
them!). Hell, the same drugs they "experimented" with, they're
mandating 10 and 20, even life sentences for first time, non-violent experimenters-far
more than for bank robbery and rape. If (select) drugs are worthy of such
irrational sentences, why can't people avoid responsibility for "lesser"
offenses, say, "experimenting" with bank robbery, or "experimenting"
with rape? Nah, this drug thing they're hanging on you isn't right. Like
you say, it's time to "forgive and forget."
I noticed the press you are getting for
being coked up at your Dad's inauguration. Strictly your business I figure.
Besides, drinking heavy like you did, a pinch of Peruvian marching powder
can really help titrate that buzz. It's like Oreos and milk, isn't it?
I've been there. But can I give you some advice? Switch to pot. That disco
dust and alcohol can make you mean, while pot mellows you out - you know
what I mean. Besides, it makes you a hell of a lot more "compassionate."
You ain't itchin' to pull the trigger on every execution that comes across
your desk (especially the 14 year olds you pushed to be able to fry)!
Speaking of forgetting, I've been rotting
in federal prison for years now. (The Drug Czar calls it our Drug Gulag
-what's with all the Russian?). The only one who hasn't forgotten me is
my federal prosecutor. Don't get me wrong, I sort of like Paul (I call
him Paul; he calls me scumbag druggie). He's like a pit bull you can't
help but grow fond of, even though he'd be a lot happier, I'll bet, if
he "experimented" like you and me. Come to think of it, being
forgotten isn't all that great. Your wife, your dog, and especially the
message it sends to the kids. Forgiving though, that's more in line with
the "compassionate" thing you are pushing. I like the "responsibility"
I'm doing my time for youthful
indiscretion -experimenting with pot (though the 80s do seem so long ago!).
My prosecutor (that's Paul) demanded that I "accept responsibility"
for my "experimenting" (that's Federal-speak for saying "Yes,
boss, whatever you say boss," to charges you can't fight because
the government gets to pay (yes, pay) their witnesses handsomely, while
you'll get an extra 10 years if you even think of actually going to trial.
Besides, prosecutors rarely know, or frankly even care, what the reality
was, and the judges have even less power now than a Kulack in front of
I really think you should "accept responsibility"
for the cocaine thing-it goes with the responsibility THING -which allows
you to be "forgotten" in the Gulag thing -which after a decade
or two, you get the forgiveness thing!
Yes George (can I call you George?; we're
so alike I feel we could be friends) it's time to accept responsibility
for your actions, then to forget, then forgive. Just like you say.
Your novig drook, (that's new friend
