To Aggrandize, Divine?

From Fort Hood, Texas. Words from our noble leader speaking to soldiers who have just returned from Iraq:

"The toppling of Saddam Hussein's statue in Baghdad will be recorded, alongside the fall of the Berlin Wall, as one of the great moments in the history of liberty."

I love this hopeful thinking. In these self promoting times, a man can easily climb into the Pantheon of Greatness with just a couple of simple statements. It gives us all hope. Because if it walks like a duck, right?

So I declare:

"Blog entries about myself will be remembered, alongside the essays of Montaigne, as one of the greatest collections of work in the history of literature."

I love the United States. All the posterity with almost none of the sweat! And you don't even have to wait for anyone to bestow it upon you. I'm never leaving this country.

Oh, and John Paul II is already considered a Saint and the body isn"t even cold yet...

The whole world has gone mad.
