It seems like you are channeling Steve Bell.

I'm wondering if Bush needs to get one of those Koranic phones.

More bananas!

I read the WaPO transcript – which was painful - from the Orwellian call for endless war ….

We will confront this mortal danger to all humanity. We will not tire or rest until the war on terror is won.
Some call this evil Islamic radicalism. Others militant jihadism.
Still, others Islamo-fascism.

Can you imagine being the voice coach who trained him to say this ? Or were the speechwriters merely taking the piss ?

With every random bombing and with every funeral of a child it becomes more clear that the extremists are not patriots or resistance fighters. They are murderers at war with the Iraqi people themselves.

Now who the hell is he talking about here, people at war with Iraqi people..killing babies ?

We've heard it suggested that Iraq's democracy must be on shaky ground because Iraqis are arguing with each other. But that's the essence of democracy: making your case, debating with those who disagree, building consensus by persuasion and answering to the will of the people.

My idea of Democratic debate doesn’t involve invading countries, bombing for months, use of napalm, torture etc., etc., perhaps I shudda have a chat with old Bertie Gonzalez

BUSH: We do know, however, that the defense of freedom is worth our sacrifice. We do know the love of freedom is the mightiest force of history. And we do know the cause of freedom will once again prevail.
May God bless you.

I note Condi turned up to listen…trust she was available in case he had a “bathroom moment”.
