Bush recap for the week:
- [Fake] Via The Onion: WASHINGTON, DC – In an internationally televised statement Monday, President Bush modified a July 2003 challenge to Iraqi militants attacking U.S. forces. “Terrorists, Saddam loyalists, and anti-American insurgents: Please stop bringing it on now,” Bush said at a Monday press conference. “Nine months and 500 U.S. casualties ago, I may have invited y’all to bring it on, but as of today, I formally rescind that statement. I would officially like for you to step back.” The president added that the “it” Iraqis should stop bringing includes gunfire, bombings, grenade attacks, and suicide missions of all types.
- [Real] Via Slate’s Today’s Papers: Describing the situation in Fallujah, the Post says, “Observed from a Marine forward operating base in the city, most streets appeared deserted. The roar of fighter jets, the thud of explosions and the sight of massive smoke clouds rising into the air punctuated the afternoon.” Or as President Bush put it, “Most of Fallujah is returning to normal.”
[Real] Via NoCode: Bush advisor and groupie Karen Hughes links Pro-Choice rally participants to terrorists. “…the fundamental issue between us and the terror network we fight is that we value every life”
[Real] Great t-shirt, bumper sticker sutff from Maureen Dowd in NYT. “In Bushworld, it’s perfectly natural for the president and vice president to appear before the 9/11 commission like the Olsen twins.”
