George "President" Bush, wallowing in the river of patriotism flowing throughout the country on its independence day, made the following bizarre statement "The challenges that America faces in Iraq, are like those that confronted the country on its first Independence Day".
So let me get this straight. The president is comparing the struggle Americans fought against a foreign country which sought to impose its rule on them, to a battle now being waged by America, a foreign country trying to impose its rule on a sovereign nation. That is pure gall right there. Must have required a lot of effort to keep a straight face.
In an unrelated bout of inanity, the president, not satisfied with inflicting his presence on the staff of a Maryland nuclear plant, tried his hand at humor by cracking the following "joke" about the first name of the president of the company, curiously named Mayo Stattuck,, "I want to thank the president and CEO of Constellation Energy, Mayo Shattuck. That's a pretty cool first name, isn't it? Mayo. Pass the mayo!"
Pass the mayo indeed, Mr President.
