Goodbye, Farewell, My Fair
Prof. Hudson McLean
There are many ways of saying "Goodbye, Farewell" to a friend
or foe, but throwing a pair of shoes at anyone, at any place, any time,
is neither civilized nor politically correct.
Said that, President George W. Bush has demonstrated that if not for
his dad's money and his connections, "Dubya" would be be most
likely end up as a gas station attendant. Many a time, he has aptly
demonstrated that he cannot even read what is written. Hopeless at his
pronunciation. Jokes are wet. He himself was the biggest joke himself.
A comedian. A bungling idiot!
Yet, as the democratically elected leader of a great Nation, he should
be awarded the civility of a traditional respect.
The United States of America, in my time, has elected a peanut farmer
(Carter), a B-Class actor (Reagen), a con-man (Nixon), a man who could
not walk and chew gum at the same time (Ford), a wimp - as described
by Reagen (Bush Sr), and The Son-of-Wimp (Bush Jr). GWB, The Man who
brought the entire world to the edge of the greatest financial precipice
and thinks its funny.
Said that, GWB is not a crook or a bad man. A son of a wealthy powerful
father, all dressed-up, and did not know what to do or where to go.
And the dad put GWB into a suit and got the Dad's Army, including Gen.
Powell, to install him at the White House. GWB, a just a fool or a "Joker"
(with due respect to the Indian Jokers as said by C-in-C Gen. Fonseka).
The financial world was brought to its knees by GWB in eight years,
but many other leaders have done worse to humanity.
Sri Lankan population may look at the past forty years and look back
and see what CBK, Premadasa, RanilW, did create for the Nation. Did
the Sri Lankans throw any brik-bats or Bata slippers? Cannot afford
such luxury. Only the Tamil Terrorist LTTE threw hand grenades and blew
up suicide bombers at these politicians. RanilW is yet to receive his
Back to GWB. All the world can say on the 20th January 2009 is, Good
Riddence, Thank God, Goodbye, Farewell, My Fair Mr. President!

Incidentally, I delve into LankaWeb daily, as part of my breakfast.
The contributors to LankaWeb were and are, doing a fine job. Factual,
readable and very correct. Sometimes one can stay quiet and make a finer
contribution in silence.
My great admirations for the President Mahinda Rajapaksa, Sec. of Defence
Gothabhaya Rajapaksa and of course the General Sarath Fonseka for a
consistant quality approach towards the cockroach infestation in Killinochchi.
