President Bush has his bearings back (after being understandably flustered by sitting in such close proximity to Matt Lauer’s hair) and is once again certain of victory in the war on terror.
“We meet today at a time of war for our country; a war we did not start, yet one that we will win.” (Technically this isn’t quite right. We sort of did start the war in Iraq, no? I mean there were all those bombs and stuff).
Has politics ever been more pathetic than it has in the last few weeks? Between the swift boat nonsense and the childish debate over “winning” the war on terror, we are reminded so clearly that a new and more serious era doesn’t necessarily mean a new and more serious political discussion.
