From The Nation --

During his Oval Office Address on Tuesday night, President Obama gave
a nod to former President George W. Bush in saying that, "No one could
doubt President Bush's support for our troops, or his love of country
and commitment to our security." But apparently that wasn't enough for
the GOP, who are now complaining that Obama didn't praise Bush
heartily enough. Jeremy Scahill joined Keith Olbermann on
Countdown last night to talk about the GOP's reaction to
Obama's speech.

Bush is one of the last people who deserve thanks for his war efforts
in Iraq, Scahill says. "The blame should be shared across the board,
but George Bush is number one responsible for this and deserves no
thanks from anyone," he explains, "except people that can be described
as enemies of this country and of security in the world."

I'd like to praise Bush!

Bush kept our most vulnerable areas warm and secure. Thanks to Bush, pollution was kept down and while frequent trimming of his hedges kept Bush small it also kept Bush managable! Bush may be sometimes forgotten but Bush will always be remembered when we think of our personal moments. Often at the sides Bush will be thought of when we embrace each other fully. Now, he may be remembered for being scratchy or for perpetuating the false truths about different colors on our bodies but I think it is important that we all at least acknowledge our Bush's existence and praise it for the duty it provides for our privates across the globe!

The Nation hasn't entirely re-defined itself as a propaganda arm of the Rethuglican party a la Fox, but that they would try to pass this off as "news" is a regrettable consequence of trying to chase a readership that has resigned from its collective sanity.

I do have to ask why *you* are amplifying their signal for them, though. It seems to me to reflect an error in judgment; I don't think we're in any danger of ignoring them in hopes they'll go away, which is the main purpose I could think of for reminding us of them.
