Freedom On The March
Mr. Bush's "reality-impaired" Administration is making satirical comedy a growth industry. Two examples:|
- David Horsey explains how "Freedom's On The March"
- The Borowitz Report on Bush's plans for world freedom: “Offer not available in Saudi Arabia, Egypt or China; see repressive regime for details..."
When President Bush flew to Canada in his first international trip following his reelection, the White House portrayed it as the beginning of a fence-mending tour to bring allies back into the fold after a tense first term. But after Bush left, the Canadians were more furious than before.
They were stunned when Bush leaned across a table in a private meeting and lectured Prime Minister Paul Martin about opposing the U.S. missile defense system. And they were later taken aback by a speech filled with what they considered the same "old Bush" foreign policy pronouncements that opened the divide with the allies in the first place.
