Bush To London Bombers: 'Bring It On'
http://www.theonion.com/index.php?pre=1&issue=

WASHINGTON, DCPresident Bush officially responded to the latest round of London transit bombings Monday, challenging terrorists to "do their worst." Said Bush, in a televised statement from the Oval Office: "The proud and resilient people of London can take anything the forces of evil and cowardice can throw at them. They will never live in fear of you. Bring it on." Prime Minister Tony Blair thanked Bush for his comments, inviting him to visit London and ride the Underground in a show of solidarity.

1. Yes, I always feel a surge of pride when my president quotes a fucking
cheerleader movie.

3. Yeah he's so brave when it's some other fucker being blown up
I've never used the eyes before, I despise them, but for the first time I feel they are appropriate.

5. Why read content when you can skim titles?

7. I noticed the source -- after a second
For those of you who missed it, it was from the Onion. It's not serious.

However, I honestly would not have put it past Bush to have actually said such a thing. I'm convinced that on some subconscious level, that's exactly how our Right feels about the Islamist militants waging terror against us -- they're not interested in protecting us against terrorists so much as they are spoiling for a full-blown confrontation just as much as al-Qaida is.

9. Gee, Blair can't speak for himself? And given how since the 1st bombing,
* has only turned the incident into an America-centric rally, it's about damn time he says the L-word. (London)

Will the flags finally go down, too?

17. it almost matters not; satire is clearly a higher form of challenge...
bush will never exit his compound for compassion, humor, or "solidarity" for that matter & regardless, unless it is found; or shall i say installed for him over here: http://www.freepressinternational.com/bilderberg.html imo of course
