George Bush, on Wednesday, came out with the following remarkable statement:
The enemy cannot defeat us on the battlefield, but what they can do is put horrible images on our TV screens.
Now, think for a moment. Does al Qaeda put the images on our TV screens? Does the Taliban? Saddam Hussein? Not the last time I checked. No, it's very clear. The free press is the enemy, according to George W. Bush. And I must say, it's very Bushian (Bush-esqe? Bushy? Bush league?) to put the blame on the people who are reporting on the disaster, not the people who created it.
The only thing I really don't understand is why the press keeps playing along. At this point, they're like the spouse in an abusive relationship who keeps going back despite regular abuse and beatings.
