in the Onion was supposed to be a satire of the 2001
Bush inaugural speech.  It was not satire.  It was
prophetic:

Bush: ‘Our Long National
Nightmare Of Peace And Prosperity Is Finally Over’

January 17, 2001 | Issue 37•01

WASHINGTON, DC-Mere days from assuming the presidency and closing the
door on eight years of Bill Clinton, president-elect George W. Bush
assured the nation in a televised address Tuesday that “our long
national nightmare of peace and prosperity is finally over.” …

It is true, almost every word of it.  Except he hasn’t
succeeded with ANWR.  Not for lack of trying.

    Oh yeah, and it’s still not too late for the ANWR thing.

    People of faith, please stop your life for a moment because I just watched the most amazing youtube
    video I have ever seen IN MY LIFE. I am typing through my tears in order to write this to you.
    There are no possible words to express this video and its spiritual impact which I have just experienced .
    Chills are still racing through my body several hours later.
    The only way for a christian to express something like this is to say these words within a spirit of prayer.
    OH, MY GOD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    This is the closest thing to witnessing the opening of the red sea or watching
    911 happen standing from a block away. This is more than real!
    When you watch this video be sure to shut off every distraction you might have by turning off your
    cell phone, locking all of your doors so you can fully comprehend each important detail while vueing the video.
    You do not want to have to watch this a second time to pick up any missing peaces watching this later because
    of distractions or it will lose its full impact value. My friend advised me that the first part of the video is a little bit boring because you do not reallize what all of the clues are leading up to. There are four short videos in part 1,2,3,4.
    Maybe about nine minutes or so. Do not skip any part and just keep going in order to comprehend
    the important climax.
    Take my advice….You are about to be blown out of your spiritual mind!!!!!
