As court jesters in “Jokers Run Wild”, members of the Bush cabinet and cronies are caught up in warmongering patriotism. A constant stream of flashing lights and Halloweenish images depict the administration’s sinister attitude of jingoism. These jokers speak their minds. Ashcroft declares, “I hate everybody.” Ridge and Mueller affirm, “I’ll never tell”, Rumsfield exclaims, “Folk you”, Cheney warns “Don’t monkey with me” and Bush utters “Keep America afraid and at war.”
