Ebbe Preisler's speech
Note: Due to too many speeches Ebbe Preisler
never got a chance to hold his speech.
Kære Ebbe Preisler,
Jeg har modtaget et lykønskningstelegram til Jacob
Holdt fra Præsident Bush, som jo ikke selv kan tillade sig at skrive
Manden virker meget forpint.
Måtte jeg bede dig læse det højt for
fødselsdagsselskabet i aften og i øvrigt overbringe også mine
Georg Bush skriver:
First of all congratulations. I
often think of the great days we spent together back on the ranch.
But secondly, thank you so much
for not - as almost the only person on the planet - for not talking badly
Just like your fairly new friends
in the Ku Klux Klan, I have personally always been driven by the noblest
Talking about ghetto, The White
House is nothing but a golden ghetto. A bird cage. I cannot, for example,
just write a letter to you. I'm being observed and controlled in
everything I do. In the toilet, in the bedroom, everywhere. I'm desperate.
But what can I do?
I never intended to win the
Precidency. My father pushed me. My brother pushed me. My wife pushed me,
very much. Dick Chenye and Karl Rove pushed me. The Oil Giants pushed me.
What could I do?
Now, most peole have turned their
backs on me. I am not interesting any more. I think I'm the loneliest
person on Earth. What can I do? Who needs me?
I know I never had what makes a
truly great President, but I was the little fellow with Jesus on my side,
and I was sober!
Today, I'm ashamed. The country is
bankrupt. Soon, China can just close the shop and take over. We'll sink
like a Titanic, with rich people waltzing around and all the lights on.
I think I'm going crazy.
I need to talk to you, dear Jacob,
My mail is filtered.
Letters are opened.
I can't receive you here.
I can't come and see you.
I'm in prison.
There is only one way: Could you
please go to your Prime Minister and have him make the call?
And as soon as I'm through here,
I'll come and live with you for some time in order to lick the wounds and
to have you tell me what actually happened.
Because I don't know nothing no
George W. Bush"
- lad mig blot tilføje: Du er velkommen nårsomhelst, Jacob. Jeg behøver
vel ikke minde dig om, at du skal huske tidsforskellen, når du ringer til
Bedste hilsener og igen tillykke
