Let freedom REIGN
Cable news outlets are reporting that during the NATO summit Bush received a note from Condi informing him of the early transfer of sovereignty.

Bush grinned smugly, and jotted his thoughts on the note:
"Let freedom REIGN"

As is typical of Bush, he doesn't quite get the words right. Clearly what he meant to write was the oft heard phrase "Let freedom RING"

As usual, Bush's malapropisms are very telling. His replacing the word RING with REIGN is extremely revealing of the way he thinks, wouldn't you say?

1. Bush was INFORMED about the early transfer?
Silly me.

I thought THE PRESIDENT would be in charge of deciding things like this. Maybe it's just me, but isn't HANDING OVER SOVEREIGN POWER TO A NATION something that shouldn't be delegated?

2. Come on let it REIGN, let it REIGN down on me...
The Late September Dogs

Just outside my window I hear the late September dogs
And I understand their warning, I understand their song
Since you left I feel the change in the air
And night after night I'm searching for mercy everywhere
So I wake in the street and I call out your name
I shout to the sky, please

(CHORUS)
Come on let it reign, let it reign down on me
Let the reign touch my hands, let the reign set me free
Let it reign down on me

Silence is the steel that pierces and cuts me to the bone
In dreams the hand that touches you is mine and mine alone
Cruel is the light is the morning shining down on me
Hours with the Devil to understand just what you need
So I wake in the street and I call out your name
Shout to the sky come on

Come on let it reign, let it reign down on me
Let the reign touch my hands, let the reign set me free
Let it reign down on me

Just inside the distance I hear the late September dogs
And so I beg for sleep the child who walked before she crawled
Damn my soul that remembers and clutches to this pain
The spear in your side is me

4. yes, demonstrating their independence, the new Iraq leadership insisted
on the two day head start--thus making us all forget that at least half of them are expatriated Iraqi CIA agents/informers.

Yay ! King George is letting Freedom reign in his desert kingdom. Ain't that sweet?
