A sliver of insight into the minds of people in Bush's base -- such as National Review's Kathryn Jean Lopez --
I was sitting near a man this morning who was reading the paper edition from cover to cover. I assumed he was reading the Washington Post or something, but sure enough it was The Onion. And he never cracked a smile. Weird things happen here in D.C., I tell you.
For example, The Onion back 7 years ago, with their version of Bush's 1st inauguration speech --
"The gap between the rich and the poor may be wide, be there's much more widening left to do. We must squander our nation's hard-won budget surplus on tax breaks for the wealthiest 15 percent. And, on the foreign front, we must find an enemy and defeat it."
Prescient. Too real to be funny.
