Goodbye Dear and AmenLook at that number in the Dubya countdown over there in the sidebar. This morning it says "3." Three. If you watched or listened to Shrub's swan song last night, you know he's actually already gone. Last night's speech, OMG, last night's speech. Amazingly, my TV survived its last brush with death, as I managed not to throw a cat, or any sharp hard objects, at the man's face as it proudly listed the horrors of the past eight years as the accomplishments of his reign. I don't think anyone could better comment on this travesty than William Rivers Pitt of Truthout.org in this brief angry cry of relief:
Of course, of course, of course, it was a ridiculous speech. Preposterous. The worst one of all, and boy howdy, that is saying something. This, after all, was the man who gave us "Bring it on" and "Mission Accomplished," and who once was unable to think of any mistakes he might have made. Each of these was a legitimate phenomenon in every respect, to be sure, but the spectacle on Thursday night bent the definition of "absurd" into bold new shapes.
Read the whole thing here, if you haven't already: The Most Ridiculous Speech of All.
