Bush Speech

The ratings for Bush’s latest speech were repartedly paltry. The demographics of the speech were something else entirely — for all intents and purposes 50% of the audience were Republicans, 25% were Democrats, and 25% were Independents.

The Faithful, the practioners of Bushianity, tuned in… inspiration beckoned, words of wisdom flowed, everyone cheered. The rest… felt no reason to bother.

You can usually annote every line of these speeches with a certain satirical flair.

Example: The terrorists who attacked us — and the terrorists we face — murder in the name of a totalitarian ideology that hates freedom, rejects tolerance and despises all dissent.

(1); (2), (3).

See how that woks? And all with only the last word of the sentence. I could go back toward the “rejects tolerance” phrase of the sentence pretty easily too.
