An Onion retrospective of the Bush presidency
http://www.theonion.com/content/index

It's scary how many of the articles could be real headlines, especially the one about Bush's approval of the American public.

4. Welcome to DU!
and Happy New Year!

The "Long National Nightmare" piece is ridiculously spot on considering it was written before * took office. Almost everything has come true. Scary.

"We as a people must stand united, banding together to tear this nation in two," Bush said. "Much work lies ahead of us: The gap between the rich and the poor may be wide, be there's much more widening left to do. We must squander our nation's hard-won budget surplus on tax breaks for the wealthiest 15 percent. And, on the foreign front, we must find an enemy and defeat it."
