Or did the timing of this announcement
Have everything to do with these ongoing events?
For a number of years, whenever Bush bashing came up in class discussions, I've tried to get my students to listen and think about the other side. I always say, "Well, your opinion is that this war is about oil. But if George Bush were here, he'd say ..." And then I'd spout the party line before giving a clear sense of what his critics have to say.
But I've got to say, as this horrid administration just keeps on rolling, I'm having more and more of a difficult time stating the party line. Because I have no fucking idea what the administration is trying to say anymore. They aren't saying anything. At least, their lies and deceptions over the past few years have had a storyline. Now, it seems, they aren't saying anything anymore. There are no goals. There is no nothing.
On another note, we spent morning work time shunning our spelling books and watching this instead.
