Finally, a Definition of "Evolution" the Administration Can Get Behind
For those of you worried about pace of democratization in Iraq, President Bush has some comforting words:
The American people must understand that democracy just doesn't happen overnight. It is a process. It is an evolution. After all, look at our own history. We had great principles enunciated in our Declarations of Independence and our Constitution, yet, we had slavery for a hundred years.Right. Give them a hundred years.... see who's left. After all, what's evolution but "survival of the fittest"?
