just a comma by pseudo-manitou just a comma by pseudo-manitou
This piece got lost in a shuffle a while ago - the scandal is old, but the revelations are still important...

This piece involves a comment from George W. Bush Jr. made during an interview with Wolf Blitzer on CNN, September 24, 2006.

Here is the full quote:
Bush Jr.: Yes, you see — you see it on TV, and that’s the power of an enemy that is willing to kill innocent people. But there’s also an unbelievable will and resiliency by the Iraqi people…. Admittedly, it seems like a decade ago. I like to tell people when the final history is written on Iraq, it will look like just a comma because there is — my point is, there’s a strong will for democracy...

Trying to dismissing the four years of death and destruction as 'just a comma' seems almost unbelievable. A few pundits later claimed that Bush was making a nod to his right-wing religious base by working from Gracie Allen's famous quip, "never place a period where God has placed a comma." -- but honestly, do you think 'Mr. is-our-children-learning' can be so eloquent, even to his own followers?

Bush doesn't speak in code - he only speaks of his indifference to the disaster that he created by being indifferent to the possible consequences of his actions in the first place.

Call your congressman/woman. Call your Senator. Demand an end to the war. Demand justice: impeach Bush.

Powerful, and so true. Even though he isn't president anymore, I still hope he falls in a pit and dies in a fire.
