oh, and one more thing...
"Democracy is a beautiful thing," Bush said, adding that "people are allowed to express their opinion." [emphasis added]
Gee, thanks! I prefer, however, to view it that people have the inherent right to express their opinion; they aren't "allowed" to do so. I suggest a little light reading for Mr. Bush.
By the way...is is just me, or is anyone else reminded, every time Bush says something like "Democracy is a beautiful thing," of Chancellor Palpatine saying "I love democracy" as he accepted broad emergency powers in Star Wars: Attack of the Clones?
