Some Of My Best Friends Are...

What annoyed me more than not being able to dial out from my hotel yesterday was this snippet from Bush's PC on Tuesday:

Some of the debate really center around the fact that people don't believe Iraq can be free; that if you're Muslim, or perhaps brown-skinned, you can't be self-governing and free. I strongly disagree with that. I reject that, because I believe that freedom is the deepest need of every human soul, and, if given a chance, the Iraqi people will be not only self-governing, but a stable and free society.

As my friend who brought this quotation to my attention said:

Who is he referencing? Nazis? So he is rejecting the notion that "brown skinned" people can't govern themselves. That's very big of him...What's next? Is he going to reject the notion that "white skinned" people can't jump?1

Despite Bush's inanity, 46% of our fellow Americans would vote for Bush if the election were held today2. Oy.


1 - I'd just like to observe that this "white skinned" person can still grab the rim, despite my being in dreadful shape. My outside shot has gone to hell, however.

2 - Rasmussen notes: Roughly half the survey interviews were completed before the President's Press Conference on Tuesday night...Tomorrow's sample will include two days since the Press Conference and provide a more solid indication of whether there is any real movement. I'll be interested in the results.
