Famous Last Words From Blair & Bush
"That is something I am confident history will forgive."
That's the best Tony Blair can do: the self-pitying words of a man going to his doom, which he is indeed when he gets home. Everything about him screams frightened.
Tonight on the news we saw a shaking, scared, humble Tony Blair like a schoolboy caned too many times address the Congress, attempting to cover his obvious quivering fear for his political career with an eminently lame joke about the chillier reception for him back in England. Then he and Bush lied some more about why we went to war with Iraq,
and they really should keep their lines straight from day to day, or at least between them. Blair apparently also considered opening his speech with "my fellow Americans." That should endear him to the British.
Soon Bush's poodle will go home to his own kennel, at which point the other dogs will rip him to shreds.
