Rethinking W

I had an epiphany today.

Here it is: George W. Bush is making this country safer from terrorists. His claim to that is absolutely, positively, one hundred percent true. It cannot be doubted.

Now, I can see you sitting there, brow furrowed in confusion, saying "Whoa, hold on, there, pardner! George W. Bush is the worst President in history! He lied us into a war against a non-existent enemy! His lackeys and toadies went in front of the world and lied about mountains of evidence, stockpiles of chemical weapons! He's an incompetent, bumbling idiot!" You know, and so on and so forth.

All true.

But it is also the case that, categorically, this country is safer today from terrorists than it ever has been--ever, in its entire history.

After all, if you accept that "the terrorists hate us for our freedoms," then surely you must also accept that he is giving them fewer reasons to hate us every day. Bush is a brilliant strategist. Thank you, George, for making us safe.
