Watching an episode of “The Sopranos” on DVD the other night, the scribe learned that “depression is rage turned inward.”

After absorbing Bush’s speech the scribe is now clear on why he sits up five nights a week writing this stuff to an average of ten readers instead of enjoying a re-run of “That ’70s Show.”

To avoid depression

The (p)resident has some set of balls as they say. He continues to link the Iraq debacle to 9/11 and has added a new and tireless insistence we must “complete the mission” (read: mess) he was in such a rush to get going.

The scribe thought the mission was done when he went prancing around on that aircraft carrier in a pilot’s suit.

There’s a million things that could be said about the pack of lies he paraded before our befuddled people last night, but the scribe prefers to take a few seconds and simply key in yet another of the practically daily press releases from (g)ov. Arnold Schwarzenegger’s office.

From the same date as Bush’s address:

[g]overnor Arnold Schwarzenneger today released the following statement regarding the death of Pfc. Veashna Muy of Los Angeles:

“Losing a member of our armed forces is a painful reminder of the high cost of freedom. Pfc. Muy served his country with unwavering commitment for which our nation will be eternally grateful. Maria and I send our condolences to Veashna’s family who has lost a cherished loved one.”

Muy, 20, died June 23 while traveling on a convoy that was attacked by a suicide, vehicle-borne, improvised explosive device in Fallujah, Iraq. He was assigned to 8th Marine Regiment, 2nd Marine Division, II Marine Expeditionary Force, Camp Lejeune, NC.

In honor of Muy, Capitol flags will be flown at half-staff.

Editorial Commentary: Shouldn’t it be “which has lost a cherished love one”? And don’t they claim Fallujah has been flattened and pacified?
