Bush: ‘I hope you all have a happy holiday’


Some of you may have thought this was a confusing and troubling and violent year, but you’re wrong, and George W. Bush backs me up on this.

“I hope you all have a happy holiday,” Bush told the planet yesterday. “This has been a year of strong progress toward a freer, more peaceful world, and a prosperous America.”

Whew! For a minute there, I thought the world was going completely to hell.

Try to be positive, would you? Spread some joy by e-mailing your friends the above card featuring Bush and his buddy Tony Blair.

For those of you still nagged by the notion that things aren’t quite right, take a look at “Fact Sheet: President Bush’s Accomplishments in 2005,” released yesterday by the White House. Here are the section titles:
