Farewell….Well, Bush gave a speech tonight (Think Progress has the full transcript here). In case you don?t feel like reading the whole thing, here?s a summary:
Good evening?landmark day in the history of liberty?democracy at the heart of the Middle East?I know many Americans have questions about the cost and direction of this war (but I?m not going to answer them?quick, over there, look at the sparkly freedom!)?weapons of mass destruction?mass graves?global terrorist movement?perpetual war against America?9/11?(do they look scared again yet, Dick?)?stay the course?fight them over there?only two options before our country?victory or defeat?we remember the words of the Christmas carol, written during the Civil War: ?God is not dead, nor [does] He sleep; the Wrong shall fail, the Right prevail, with peace on Earth, good-will to men.?
And on that note, I will bid you adieu, because I am a French weasel, and thank Kevin very much for inviting me and you Political Animals for being so very gracious.
