A synopsis of President Bush’s November 1st speech to the Heritage Foundation, and the Democratic Response
- The terrorists (bin Laden quoted once, otherwise who the “terrorists” are is not specified, except that they’re Muslims) want to take over the world!
- Even though the accomplishments of al Qaeda since 9/11/01 have been disappointing, from a take-over-the-world point of view, be afraid, be very afraid.
- The terrorists are as big a threat as Lenin and Hitler!*
- I want my Attorney General. Now!
- Congress has no right to not be afraid, very afraid. Didn’t I just tell everyone to be afraid? So be afraid!
- Congress also has no right to ask questions about torture of my nominees in a time of war. With a guy as scary as Lenin and Hitler. Or somebody. Aw shucks, we’re at war, dadgummit! So I get to be the decider.
- Congress also has no right to not give me want I want. So gimeee gimmmee gimmeee now now now!
The Democratic response from Schumer and Feinstein:
“Well in that case, thank you sir! May I have another?”
*After all, their leader actually sends out a VHS from time to time with really negative words.
