He Thinks He Got Away With It.

“Almost every man wastes part of his life attempting to display qualities which he does not possess.” —Samuel Johnson

Feeling smug and confident, President George W. Bush will give his final State of the Nation Address to a joint session of Congress this evening. He will talk about how his visio for freedom in Iraq has worked beyond our wildest expectations. He will tell us how the nation’s economy has never been so strong. He will laud his own accomplishments to the skies.

He will be lying through his teeth.

This past week, The Center for Public Integrity published the results of an investigation into the truthfulness of this administration. It concluded that since the advent of the 9,11 attacks, this administration has lied 935 times, most of these lies peaking during the run up to the war with Iraq and other dubious endeavors of this administration.

(Click on the headline above to be taken to this article at the Center’s website.)

After completing his list of prevarications, the president will announce that he is placing himself and his administration under house arrest for high crimes and misdemeanors against this country. He will then pardon everyone and get back to business as usual.
