on not watching the inauguration

Since I am not watching the inauguration, I have no idea what Dubya is saying about one's duty to die for the sins of the Iraqi people. If they (the Iraqis) had their act together, it would be a lot easier to belong to the world's lone superpower.

People generally get the government they deserve, and the most popular books in Baghdad bookstores (pre-liberation) were books about Adolph Hitler.

I would feel a lot better about our President's urges to save the world from godless incompetence if his daughters (and V.P. Cheney's) were in our front lines in uniform and flak jackets.
