From the Onion: Bush: "Our Long National Nightmare of Peace and Prosperity Is Finally Over"

Keep in mind this is pre-9/11, right when George W Bush was inagurated for the first time. http://www.theonion.com/articles/bush-our-long-national-nightmare-of-peace-and-pros,464/

Um. So?

That’s a famous Onion piece, and yes, he proved them right.

Yea, your at least a half-decade late in pointing at that article as prescient, Qin.

But it is a funny article.

Well not funny exactly. Depressing.

Yes, believe it or not, some of use actually voted against Bush back in 2000 because we thought his obvious incapacity for the job and the toxic ideology of the Republican Party would lead the country to ruin!

Yup, we predicted the wars, the runaway spending, economic crisis, the collapse of environmental regulation, the loss of civil liberties.

The torture was a surprise though. Didn’t see that one coming.

No-one expects the [del]Spanish[/del] American Inquisition.

Don’t forget the human-animal hybrids.
