Shrub

Did I miss something, or did Bush last night compare himself and the morass in Iraq to Lincoln and the end to slavery, the Greatest Generation and WWII, and -- holy weeping angel puppies -- Martin Luther King and the civil rights movement?

What a knob.

Oh, and I'm pretty sure all of those people could pronounce "nuclear" correctly.

But my favorite bit comes from FOH (Friend of Hell) Dr. Gori, who quotes the Prez:

"A hopeful society has institutions of science and medicine that do not cut ethical corners, and that recognize the matchless value of every life. Tonight I ask you to pass legislation to prohibit the most egregious abuses of medical research: human cloning in all its forms, creating or implanting embryos for experiments, creating human-animal hybrids..." [emphasis and incredulous eye-rolling mine]

Well, damn. There goes the mermaid vote.

I agree, what a knob!

Who advises this chucklehead?

I mean, can we really feel safe in a country whose leader thinks that a muumuu wearing Brando is making genetic soup?

Well he got the WMD thing wrong. Maybe he makes his policy by watching bad movies.

At least Bush stopped with the comparisons after Lincoln and MLK. Now, had he compared himself to Veronica Mars, that would be going too far.
