And he's still ours....

In Thursday's White House Press Conference, President Bush discussed why there hasn't been more progress in achieving democracy in Iraq.

He says:

"Part of the reason why there is not this instant democracy in Iraq is because people are still recovering from Saddam Hussein's brutal rule. I thought an interesting comment was made when somebody said to me, I heard somebody say, where's Mandela? Well, Mandela is dead, because Saddam Hussein killed all the Mandelas."

Yes, Hussein was a horrible, brutal dictator, but I had no idea his brutality extended to the former South African President, who incidentally, is actually still alive.

Only 487 more days? "Only" 487 more days? This guy can do more damage in 48.7 seconds than most of us can do in 487 months! The shame is, he's a reflection of most of the country. That's why he's where he is. Wake me up next November, please.

I'll wake you Mark, but only if he's turning the country over to someone responsible.
