Blue Wren reflects on Commander Codpiece

Blue Wren stares into breakfast and ruminates on the three years since ‘Mission Accomplished.’

And today, according to a headline in the New York Times, “Bush hails ‘turning point’ in Iraq.”

We’ve reached so many turning points in the last three years in Iraq, I think we’re hopelessly lost. It’s long past time, President Bush, to stop and ask for directions.

I ran across this quote from H.L. Mencken the other day:

“As democracy is perfected, the office of president represents, more and more closely, the inner soul of the people. On some great and glorious day the plain folks of the land will reach their heart’s desire at last and the White House will be adorned by a downright moron.”
–H.L. Mencken

We’ve reached that “great and glorious day.”

Ah… yes. That is a drum well and truly struck.
