The Onion, January 17, 2001: Bush: 'Our Long National Nightmare Of Peace And Prosperity Is Finally Over'

"We as a people must stand united, banding together to tear this nation in two," Bush said. "Much work lies ahead of us: 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."

"The insanity is over," Bush said. "After a long, dark night of peace and stability, the sun is finally rising again over America. We look forward to a bright new dawn not seen since the glory days of my dad."

Mission accomplished!



I remember that! I think I cut it out and saved it. Looks like we're about to plunge into the darkness again...
