He spoke

I watched our President speak. Good god. How do you Bush fans out there (all 20 some percent of you) actually do it? This was one of his better speeches and he still keeps me thinking that he is a moron wrapped in a doofus. I mean, this was "serious George." No smirking. No grinning.

Yet, I walk away more depressed than before. I loved, btw, that he acknowledged "mistakes were made." Not that "he" made any, mind you, but they were made. Of course, they are ultimately his fault, in some vague way. But our President Doofus didn't make any. Those mistakes, in the magical lesson for all passive writers out there, "were made." By someone.

Yet tomorrow, he will get credit in some circles. For looking at the clusterfuck that is Iraq and saying that "mistakes were made."



Only good news today was this:Newsweek: Gates to Ask Lt. Gen William Boykin to Leave Pentagon Post. Read Melissa's post. Robert Gates may actually be a grownup Republican.


In an effort to speak hope into the void of Bushworld, we watched this before and after:
Amazon.com: Bruce Springsteen & the E Street Band - Live in Barcelona: DVD: Bruce Springsteen

For any fans, I recommend it. Great songs off the Rising album with old Springsteen greats sprinkled in. Quite a treat, btw, to hear fans in Barcelona singing every damn word.
May your strength give us strength
May your faith give us faith
May your hope give us hope
May your love give us love
