Putting words in the President's mouth

P.J. O'Rourke had quite a clever piece in The Weekly Standard online today. It is a list of things he wishes the President would say at the debate (there aren't enough of those columns out there, right?). O'Rourke goes for hard hitting humor rather than serious statements, however.

Among my favorites:

(2) There are two organizations pushing for change in November--al Qaeda and the Democratic party. And they both have the same message: "We're going to fix you, America." On the whole, the terrorists have a more straightforward plan for fixing things. They're going to blow themselves up. Although, come to think of it, Howard Dean did that.

(4) Speaking of jobs, Senator, how come every illegal immigrant who wades the Rio is able to find one in about 10 minutes? Meanwhile, your Democratic core constituency has been unemployed for years. Are your supporters lazy, Senator Kerry? Or are they stupid? Back when Clinton was president, did your supporters think they got their jobs at Burger King because Bill was sleeping with the cow?

(7) You say that we won the war, but we're losing the peace because Iraq is so unstable. When Iraq was stable, it attacked Israel in the 1967 and 1973 wars. It attacked Iran. It attacked Kuwait. It gassed the Kurds. It butchered the Shiites. It fostered terrorism in the Middle East. Who wants a stable Iraq?

(15) Senator Kerry, you say you were in favor of threatening to use force on Saddam Hussein, but that actually using force was wrong. The technical term for this in political science is "bullshit."

That is sweet. Three more weeks. It is driving me nuts. Every morning, while driving to work, it occurs to me that, statistically speaking, every second car on the road is a Kerry supporter. I think, "What the hell could possibly be wrong with them? Hell, they look normal."

Go figure.
