Deconstructed Chick

Deconstructed Chick

Deconstructed Chick (2001)

Paging David Letterman. Here's a keeper for your series on Great Moments in Presidential Speeches:

If you've got a chicken factory, a chicken-plucking factory, or whatever you call them, you know what I'm talking about.
--George W. Bush, April 19, 2007

Actually...

I have no idea what you are talking about. But please don't go further off script and try to elaborate because...

HEAD ON APPLY DIRECTLY TO THE FOREHEAD HEAD ON APPLY DIRECTLY TO--

The Anonymous Liberal stopped his head from throbbing and has a few thoughts:

Imagine for a second that you're an alien who just arrived on Earth . . . No, never mind. Not even necessary. Just imagine that you're yourself--from the year 1998--and that someone played this video clip for you and told you that the man in the video is the President of the United States, and he is trying to convince a hand-picked, fake-townhall audience to continue to support a disastrously ill-advised, horrendously unpopular, and seemingly unwinnable war in Iraq.

How totally unfathomable would such a revelation seem (above and beyond the whole 'seeing the future' aspect of it)? It's just really hard to believe we've come to this, that the most powerful nation in the world, at a crucial moment in its history, is being led by someone who is so obviously not up to the task.

Judge --and deconstruct -- for yourself:

Yes, death is terrible. I feel like I've been watching my country die for over seven years...

Popeye

When Uncle Sam shoots his gun, does a flag pop out? If so, whose flag is it, anyway?

When Uncle Sam shoots his gun, does his Cornucopian hat pop open? If so, do birds fly out? What kind of birds are they?

When Uncle Sam shoots his gun, does he lose his trousers? What else does he lose?

When Uncle Sam shoots his gun, does he ever hit the bullseye? How many Kewpie dolls has he won? Any wear a burka? A hula?

What kind of gun does Uncle Sam shoot? Without getting arrested? Without having his enlistment extended?

Is Uncle Sam related to Yosemite, by any chance?
