48 hours
Another speech from Dubya, with his studied furrowed-brow-look that he no doubt practices in the mirror--
GWB:"how's that?"
Laura:"That's very nice dear."
-- but now we're going to war Thursday night, or maybe a little sooner. No mention of Al Quaeda, apart from the oblique reference to our needing to be on guard against an increased likelyhood of domestic terrorism due to the president's ruinous blowhard diplomacy. I'd like to believe that Bush's concern for the oil wells not being damaged "because they belong to the Iraqi people", but nothing this miserable commander in chief has done or said gives me any reassurance that he means it; as it is, I've used the word Orwellian too many times in referring to this administration's rhetoric.
