Shrub: I Can Only Give One Speech... matter how many times I have to repeat it.

Follow the link to see an appallingly extensive comparison between two different speeches, given months apart, that are almost exactly -- and I mean almost exactly -- the same thing. And they're long. I guess years of staring out the window wondering exactly when he became a great man atrophied the rest of his brain.

Approve my unconstructive comments or I'll stab you in the leg.

Whoever this loser is, he's obviously forgotten that this is America and comments aren't meant to be constructive.

You can't blaim Bush for his speeches. You can't even blame his speechwriters. Its a miracle that Bush's speeches sound as good as they do. I mean, Bush's speechwriters can actually write a speech (that can be articulated in a drawl) that both defends America's incursion into Iraq on grounds not given at the outset of the war and defines the Iraqi insurgency not as Iraqi people but "enemies of humanity." Also, the speech's rhetorical defense of the US's massive military presence in Afghanistan, Iraq, and (lets keep our fingers crossed!) Iran --by telling us that a terrorist network of a few hundred is capable of "conduct[ing] a war against non-radical Muslim governments" in the same way that the US is fighting a war. And the speech is delivered and applauded. When you're writing an audience that will politely listen and applaud during all that, any old speech will do as we see!

I hope we can all see the value of doing a little homework before we post around here. As mike swanson has illustrated -- whoever he is -- knowing what you're talking about makes reading the comments so much more interesting for me, the blogmaster general. So thank you, anonymous participant. I encourage your ongoing involvement in the Lapplander community.
