Remember when President Bush Sr. was called Hitler for addressing schoolchildren?

Yeah. Me neither.

President George H.W. Bush, 1991-10-01:

"Thank you, Ms. Mostoller, and thanks for allowing me to visit your classroom to talk to you and all these students, and millions more in classrooms all across the country."

Note: The President's remarks were broadcast live by the Cable News Network, the Public Broadcasting System, the Mutual Broadcasting System, and the NBC radio network.

Remember when Reagan was called Hitler for addressing schoolchildren?

Yeah. Me neither.

PRESIDENT REAGAN: Well, thank you very much. Please, be seated. You know, this is a real treat for me, having you here, and to have in a little while the chance to answer some of your questions. Let me also offer a special hello to those of you who are watching on C-Span, or the Instructional Television Network. Thank you for inviting us into your home or your school today ...
And that is a vision that goes beyond economics and politics, it's also a moral vision, grounded in the reverence and faith of those who believe that with God's help, they could create a free and democratic nation ...

Because you see, the taxes can be such a penalty on people that there's no incentive for them to prosper and to earn more and so forth because they have to give so much to the government ...

There was talk about having a gun ban in California. It didn't go through. But I got a letter from a man in San Quentin Prison. And from the prison he wrote me the letter to tell me he was in there for burglary, he was a burglar. And he said, "I just want you to know that if that law goes through, here in San Quentin there will be celebrating throughout the day and night by all the burglars who are in prison."

GLENN BECK RAPED AND MURDERED A YOUNG GIRL IN 1990 says the website Glenn Beck Raped and Murdered a Young Girl in 1990 dot com.

Why have we heard no refutation from Beck about this?

What is he hiding?

To the Rev. Steven Anderson

...and his ilk.

Sarah Palin Quits

Apparently because people were mean to her. And the Freepers love the "strategery" of this because, you know, if she ever became president I'm sure America's enemies would treat her with kid gloves in order not to excite her tender sensibilities.

Here's her swan song in a nutshell (to mix metaphors):

"And that's the reason. The reason I just gave is explained and it's the reason. Now that I've fully explained my decision and given all the reasons, there are no other reasons, we can get on with the fight for Alaska. Which I am now giving up an incredibly powerful office in. In order to help it. Which I just explained so no more explanation is necessary."

A Moving Commentary by Bill Moyers

On the Isreali onslaught in Gaza:

Abraham Foxman of the Anti-Defamation League strains credibility in a ridiculous criticism of Moyers, and Moyers responds brilliantly.

Farewell to "Great Moments in Presidential Speeches"

Goodbye to Mr. 22%

The Economist says, "The frat boy ships out."

Keith Olbermann reminds us of the biggest failures of Chimpy —an important document of the damage this administration has done— lest the truth fade with time and spin and legacy polishing: Eight years in eight minutes.
