Our morbid president

Posted by on August 25 at 8:00 AM

This is so evil. Bush gives a shout-out to an Idaho mother named Tammy Pruett whose husband and five children are doing the Iraq tour and, uh, well, none of them have died, but if any of them DID, well, that would be OK with Tammy, because, as virtuous Tammy puts it: “I know that if something happens to one of the boys, they would leave this world doing what they believe.”

Then Bush, being thoughtful: “And I guess you couldn’t ask for a better way of life than giving it for something that you believe in.” Haha, that’s awesome — literally, a great way to live your life is to die.
