A Year Ago Today

A little Q & A history in preparation for tonight's drinkingbamboozlepalooza:

Q Will you respond to an analysis that's already been raised that this is -- this very modest ceremony is, in the face of the insurgent activity, is a kind of panic move, that it represents an effort to wrong-foot the insurgents and terrorists, and it kind of shows they almost have the upper hand?

SENIOR ADMINISTRATION OFFICIAL: No, it's quite the contrary. I would say that demonstrating to not only the terrorists, but to the Iraqi people that this government is ready, this government is ahead of schedule and this government is committed to fulfilling their hopes and aspirations.

Q Beyond his remarks with Prime Minister Blair this afternoon, does the President plan to address the American people anytime soon, today or Wednesday, or whenever, about the significance of this moment?

SENIOR ADMINISTRATION OFFICIAL: Well, he will address -- the entire world, including the American people will hear from the President today about his thoughts on today's transfer of sovereignty.

Blah blah blah, same shit different day, day in/day out, year after year.

Will I watch Bush tonight knowing my bullshit-o-meter will be at full tilt from the moment Bush's lips begin to move? Absolutely. I've 1744 reasons.
