The president may have connections we don’t know about. According to his comments the morning of the London bombing, he can commune with the afterworld.
“I spent some time recently with the prime minister, Tony Blair,” he said Thursday, continuing subjectlessly “…had the opportunity to express our heartfelt condolences to the people of London, people who lost lives.”
Jeez I wonder what those people who lost lives told him. Do they know where my good pen got to? Or if Shakespeare was really five women?
The full Bush statement is here. I’m sorry to joke, but I want so badly to have a leader who speaks words of courage, not garbled slogans and half-baked homilies.
Take the words of London’s mayor, for example, in particular the ones he addressed to the bombers:

In the days that follow look at our airports, look at our sea ports and look at our railway stations and, even after your cowardly attack, you will see that people from the rest of Britain, people from around the world will arrive in London to become Londoners and to fulfil their dreams and achieve their potential. They choose to come to London, as so many have come before because they come to be free, they come to live the life they choose, they come to be able to be themselves.
