Speak TRUTH To Power! (By Not Eating)

As many of you have probably heard, many progressive celebrities are joining Peace Mother Sheehan in a "Rolling Fast" wherein each celebrity fasts for one day, then "hands off" to another celebrity. This display of iron self-control and willpower among a group noted for eating disorders is sure to cause President Bush to abandon his evil plans of killing off all Iraqis so Ken Lay can live unmolested in Ramadi while they bury the corpse of some guy who had plastic surgery to look like him.

This is all well and good, but it seems somewhat elitist to only have the beautiful people get attention for fasting. That's why I'm excited that Liberal Larry at BlameBush! has democratized the process, and is offering netizens of the blogosphere the opportunity to join in. He's divided July 12th into 144 ten minute periods, and is asking people to sign up to fast during their alloted time to show support for starving celebrities. I'm already signed up, and asked for my period to be scheduled during the evening commute, so everyone will be able to see me fast as I'm driving home. I just hope I don't get off work early that day, though... I'd hate to have to push dinner back a few minutes. Of course, if I get off really early, I could have dinner just before my designated fasting time, which could work out OK...

You know, if someone dies while doing this ten minute fast, then it will be Bush's fault.

No, it doesn't matter, who, where when how or why, it will still be Bush's fault.

Now if a Hollywood celebrity were to off him or herself as a result of this, you know that Bush will be hauled off to Gitmo for a round of mockery.

What if we get run over by a hybrid car driven by a Sun Valley celebrity while they're fasting? Will it still be Bush's fault?

HELK YES! Don't you understand, that with the Shrub's failure to ratify Kyoto, car manufacturers were FORCED, FORCED I tell you to make something that was environmentally friendly and met our Progressyve demands to Be Nice To Gaia.

Otherwise, had Kyoto been ratified, the car manufacturers would not have had their backs to the wall and it would have been Socialism As Usual.

As The Founding Mother of The Pink Turbaned Progessyves For Peace and its only member, I felt duty bound to tell you that since you were fasting too.

A fasting celebrity shouldn't be driving under the influence of lightheadedness. Since they all suffer from bulimia anyway, how do you have a drug test for that?
