Sometime back in 1999, I remember telling my Dad that George W. Bush represented everything that was wrong with our political system. This was a guy that appeared to have failed at everything he did, but because he came from a rich and powerful family, many fools — including my father (although I didn’t call him that to his face) — found him not just acceptable, but worthy of the most powerful job in the world. He seemed to have not one ounce of understanding about what good government means or what a person given the opportunity to be President is obligated to do for the people he represents.
Unfortunately, I was right and now we’re, as Private Pyle says, “in a world of shit.”
And now we find out that Bush’s personal piss-boy is getting that leg-up that Bush and rich kids everywhere live their life knowing is theirs to be taken:
Gottesman, college dropout and former beau to Bush daughter, to begin in the fall
A 26-year-old college dropout who carries President Bush’s breath mints and makes him peanut butter-and-jelly sandwiches will follow in his boss’s footsteps this fall when he enrolls at Harvard Business School (HBS)
Who gives a shit if you work your ass off in part-time jobs to get through an undergraduate degree at a state college? No one really cares if you spend eight years in the National Guard and actually come out alive to finally get to use the GI Bill, student loan repayment program and college tuition assistance (only to find that you have to STAY in the Guard to use them long enough to make any difference). So what if you’re handicapped or a minority or an orphan or not equipped with two loving parents who encourage your education and your entire life is one long painful journey through a system that sees every roadblock as one where all you really need to do is “pull yourself up by your bootstraps,” even if you were born without boots or feet to put them on. Quit yer bitchin’ and shut up, because this isn’t your world, it’s the rich folks’ world and they don’t give one tiny thought to what you want or how hard you worked for it.
But, spend a few months sucking face with the President’s daughter and than four years sucking ass to the President as his personal gopher and note-carrier and you can write your own ticket to one of the best business colleges in the country — even if you don’t have the most basic of accomplishments to get there, like, for example, an undergraduate DEGREE that shows you have some of the acumen necessary to make it in graduate school.
BTW, I thought they called it “GRADUATE” school because it’s for people who GRADUATED! Or, perhaps, that’s just for us lazy-ass poor people.
Scumbag like Bush and Gottesman are what’s wrong with politics and, more importantly, society. People who think it’s okay to promote failure and ignorance at every turn deserve nothing but failure and ignorance. Except that the system is gamed to their advantage and there’s not a goddamned thing you can do about it.
Don’t get me wrong, I’m not jealous. I’m proud of my accomplishments, proud to have worked my way through college, proud to finally have paid off my student loans, even if I still carry a buttload of credit card debt begun at the same time. Proud to know that I served honorably and got my discharge because I was done, not because my Daddy pulled some strings and made sure I never had to fulfill a single obligation in my silver-spooned and fur-lined sad little life.
There are some things I can stand and some things I can understand, but this shit just chaps my ass.
Gottesman deserves nothing more than to spend the rest of his life wiping George W. Bush’s ass, because, truly, that’s all he appears to be qualified to do.
Then again, that’s all George W. Bush appears qualified to do, yet, somehow, in a cruel twist of ironic bullshit, the shittiest human being in our known world was given an opportunity to stink up the White House.
And that is exactly what he’s done.
If Harvard Business School is staffed by enough idiots to think this is a good idea, I have a feeling that the corporate world may finally get what they deserve.
Anyone need a drink? I do.
