Cleaning Up After Bush

SAO PAULO, Brazil -- And speaking of security, the Secret Service evidently has nothing on Mayan priests. The Associated Press reports out of Guatemala that priests there plan to purify the Iximche ruins after President Bush visits on Monday to rid the site of any "bad spirits" he may leave behind. Hmm. Hopefully they're not referring to reporters.

Careful those are the same guys that used to cut hearts out to sacrifice to the demons.

Maybe we can hire them for a gig on Pennsylvania Ave. in Jan, 2009.

If you get a chance to speak with one of these priests I would be curios to find out more background on this Peter. Do they regularly do this or is there something special about GWB (and what?) that causes them to need to purify their temple. I mean they used to do human sacrifices thier right?

I've heard that perhaps Mr. Bush and Dr. Rice may not return to the United States; that he and she plan resigning and settling together in Costa Rica or Panama. Politically, the idea seems to be to put Mr. Cheney directly in charge so he can finish the job of the Administration. Can anyone confirm this?

I hope no one leaves a washington post paper lying around there, you will have to burn the place to the ground.

I was a Peace corps Volunteer in Brazil when Kennedy was president It is heartbreaking and no small thing to be reviled when we were once so loved. Yes we do ignore, but even worse is the superior attitude. There for all to see and hear in stance and tone, The Ugly American rides again. So Tragic.

Naturally the Columbians are reacting to the sulphuric nature of W's presence.

Well, the last time Bush defiled a location, the following words were spoken... "Yesterday, the devil came here. Right here. Right here. And it smells of sulfur still today!"....A through purification is entirely in order...good call by the Mayan priests!

Can not say I blame them. Wish we could convince them to keep him and his combat-avoiding family there.

Geesh, good idea. Bad spirits attend the entire crew, for sure. Can we purify the white house after he leaves? The city? The whole country?

what about the Skid Marks?

How come nobody ever complains when Castro or Chavez run around Latin America ? Do they own it, is the U.S. left ceding the entire Hemisphere to their likes ? Get real people !
