try not to throw up

as you read this article on the ceremony that was held last week to celebrate 216 years of the Constitution. Take this tidbit:

We have seen freedom’s power in Europe and Asia and Africa and Latin America, and we will see freedom’s power in the Middle East,” Bush said, addressing about 200 guests.

As Dubya happily shoulders his White Man’s Burden, someone should send him a world map with the following neatly outlined in red Sharpie ™: Cyprus, Belarus and Armenia (in Europe), China, Pakistan, Nepal, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka (in Asia), Nicaragua, Haiti, Guatemala, and Colombia (in Latin America) and pretty much all of Africa. But wait, there’s more:

Bush then added, “Every person in every culture has the inalienable right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.”

Except for those who might stand in the way of oil companies.

    Waaaaait a second here. Hold the phone. From watching and reading the news, I was led to believe the only places in the world that existed were America and the Middle East. Africa huh? They’ll come up with anything these days.
