Bush Says He Still Believes Iraq War Was The Fun Thing To Do

I've said this before, but the Onion quietly produces the most consistent, and consistently funny, satire out there. Their humor can get pretty dark:

"I urge those who have grown tired of this war to lighten up and live a little," Rice said on CBS Evening News, adding that Bush had furthered his commitment to having a rip-roaring time in Iraq with a recent troop surge. "What detractors of this war don't understand is that when it comes to fighting terrorism, there's no harm in letting loose and painting the town red."

The president also stated that he would not succumb to those who had pressured him to set a date for withdrawal, insisting that U.S. troops would remain in the region for as long as his administration was enjoying itself.

The whole article is here.

"Mark my words," Bush continued. "When the dust settles and the smoke clears, history will look back on the Iraq War as a total blast."

You know, I wonder if electing Obama would be such a good thing. Think of all the comedians he'll be putting out of business. At least with McCain we can transition, let those folks find new jobs.

I never realized that was the reason. Now I understand, a throwback to his own college years.
