Obligitory post-speech rant
So, what I got from Emperor Dim Son's speech last night was that:
a) we have more than enough troops but need more people to sign up anyway,
b) Iraq will be free once all those "foreign fighters" are gone, not including the "foreign fighters" from our country,
c) terraists hate freedom of speech and that's why we need to stop all dissent in this country,
d) magnetic ribbons on cars and flying the flag have some sort of magical effect to support the military, and
e) we'll leave Iraq when we're good and ready, and not a second before.
No mention of the deteriorating situations in either Iraq or Afganistan, of course; though, considering that the CNN poll on the speech was running about 75% "worrisome" on the public's feelings about it, it doesn't seem to have done much good. At least it kept Bush busy for a half-hour; 30 minutes where he couldn't screw anything new up.
