During the Joint Session of Congress
With Bush speaking, trying to unite America
All of America watching
Seantors and Reps. United in accord
She was seen next to Kennedy,
Him looking drunk and Her scowling,
fake clapping, with a face that could curdle milk
Makes my blood boil now, 10 years later
She was and still is scum.
I remember that! She was shaking her head in denial as GW Bush was addressing the nation. I thought at the moment that her world was crashing down because GW Bush would be the man in the spotlight and she would not have her day in the sun. Reflecting back, I wonder if she knew that her husband had the screwed up the opportunity to get Bin Laden. Probably.
I also remember the memorial service at Yankee Stadium. There was one shot of Sen. Schumer and Sen. Clinton. Clinton had this petulant child look of “I just have to sit through this thing, I am so bored.” Schumer in comparison looked human and decent. But then the former was a carpetbagger, and the latter, well, maybe things hit a little too close to home, and that stopped his nastiness for a while. The senior senator though eventually returned to being Upchuck da Schmuck.
