Bush Really Proud About Allowing Election
We missed this on Saturday, because who the hell actually listens to the President's Radio Address, but it's still worth a post because it's insane. Here's an actual quote from Bush on the radio:
One freedom that defines our way of life is the freedom to choose our leaders at the ballot box. We saw that freedom earlier this week, when millions of Americans went to the polls to cast their votes for a new Congress. Whatever your opinion of the outcome, all Americans can take pride in the example our democracy sets for the world by holding elections even in a time of war.Yeah, because one thing the United States always does in a "time of war" is cancel elections. Well, okay, not really. We managed to have elections during World War I and World War II and the Korean War and the Cold War and the Vietnam War and the War On Drugs and the War On Christmas, among others.
Jesus Christ, we never figured James Baker III would save democracy ....
