09/30/2003 Archived Entry: "Busheviks. I stand corrected"

A FEW DAYS AGO, I REFERRED TO THE LYING MACHINATIONS OF "BUSHIES." The great hunter offers this correction:

The proper term to use for the gaggle of cut-throats pretending they run the show in Washington these days is not "Bushies." One should always call a thing what it is, and they are, of course, "Busheviks." This alludes to their *true* tendencies and agenda in a nicely historical way, and from what I can tell irritates the heck out of them. As has been pointed out by a better man than I (in the sense of being more widely published... ), Republicans are USED to being called or alluded to as fascists, but casting them in the role of communists is both accurate, enlightening, and strikes past many of their defences.
