Bush's speech tonight

The Rude Pundit has a great post today on the irrelevant blathering we can expect from George Bush's speech tonight at 8pm ET. And in typical Rude Pundit fashion, he also provides an equally compelling anology.

Let us say that you're a guy who' datin' a woman who's totally into
stuffed animals....And one day she walks into her bedroom in her
apartment and catches you fuckin' one of them. That's right. You're
balls deep in Funshine Bear and you just didn't expect her home. It's
bad enough that you're in her place when she didn't invite her. But now
she's gotta deal with the sight of you, pants off, thrusting your cock
into a smilin' yellow bear.

And while you know your relationship, such that it is, can never be the
same, especially when she finds the crusty spots on Snookum Bunny, you
might be able to ask for forgiveness and see what happens.

Except when she demands an explanation, you turn it around on her. Why
can't she support you? She's got all these fluffy fuckers just layin'
around here – why can't you have your way with 'em?


[...]

Seriously, and, c'mon, really, what the fuck can Bush say tonight
that's gonna make everyone who's turned so viciously on him suddenly
think that the war in Iraq is just jim-holy-shit-dandy.


I couldn't agree more!

But it will certainly be interesting to see how more primetime lies and distortions of the truth will affect his approval ratings.

UPDATE: All Spin Zone has an exerpt from Pres. Johnson's speech in 1968 about Vietnam that sounds frightenly similar to the Bush Administration's rhetoric.
