Warm Words, Empty Gestures Club

Welcome, Africa, our latest member. The Scotsman reported yesterday that BushInc's latest lip service to African aid was met with something less than enthusiasm.

"Africa doesn't need yet more warm words followed by empty gestures," said a spokeman for Oxfam.

But gee, why should they be any different than our veterans, our seniors, our school children, our teachers, our environment, our unemployed, and I really could go on.

This administration's motto could and should be "warm words followed by empty gestures" in reference to any social or moral context not somehow perceived as business friendly.
