I cannot believe this.

MR. LEHRER: Let me ask you a bottom-line question, Mr. President. If it is as important as you've just said - and you've said it many times - as all of this is, particularly the struggle in Iraq, if it's that important to all of us and to the future of our country, if not the world, why have you not, as president of the United States, asked more Americans and more American interests to sacrifice something? The people who are now sacrificing are, you know, the volunteer military - the Army and the U.S. Marines and their families. They're the only people who are actually sacrificing anything at this point.

PRESIDENT BUSH: Well, you know, I think a lot of people are in this fight. I mean, they sacrifice peace of mind when they see the terrible images of violence on TV every night. I mean, we've got a fantastic economy here in the United States, but yet, when you think about the psychology of the country, it is somewhat down because of this war.

The PBS interview from last week.

The terrible images of violence on TV every night? That's our sacrifice?


Does that make sense to anyone but him?

I saw this on the Daily Show, actually, I'm not about to watch him speak without the promise of a weird or funny statement.

State of the Union tomorrow?

Hello, Dirty Jobs is on at the same time. Yeah, what's your choice?

I'll read about it in the paper, but I'm not watching it, I can't.

I don't have to, I'm in a shitty mood because of shitty health, I have the right to watch what I want, bwahahaha.
