What show was Andy watching?
Andy Sullivan seem to think there was someything new in the Bush speech last night:
The last phony anti-war argument was that President Bush had yet to “make the case” for war against Iraq, as if grown-ups didn’t have the capacity to make their own minds up on the issue without constant guidance from the commander-in-chief. But that surely must now be in tatters as a point, since the president has made speech after speech in the last year clearly laying out the rationale for the war on terror, a rationale that has always included defanging Saddam. And now he’s gone and laid it out in full, at length and in detail in prime time. And what did the networks do, the same networks that routinely feature talking heads bravely pronouncing that the president hasn’t made his case? They ignored him. Of course they did. What losers and sophists.
“. And now he’s gone and laid it out in full, at length and in detail in prime time. “
What details? Bush delivered the same stump speech he’s been giving all around the country in his same halting three-words-at-a-time cadence. Then he lied and said he doesn’t want to go to war… again. Nobody believes that.
Maybe somebody should tell Andy to turn off the Tom Robinson CD’s and un-mute the TV.
