POLAND….During the debate John Kerry suggested that the war coalition wasn’t really much of a coalition: only the U.S., Britain, and Australia. “We can do better,” he said.
Bush, obviously peeved, snapped back, “He forgot Poland.” My initial reaction was that this line was going to make pretty good joke fodder on late night TV (insert your own one-liner here), but Julian Sanchez at Hit & Run actually has the best response. Here’s what President Aleksander Kwasniewski of Poland thinks of the coalition today: “They deceived us about the weapons of mass destruction, that’s true. We were taken for a ride.”
Maybe Bush would be better off forgetting Poland too.
