Today’s “what the fuck” moment:
The Congress, by Public Law 85-529, as amended, has designated May 1 of each year as “Loyalty Day.” I ask all Americans to join me in this day of celebration and in reaffirming our allegiance to our Nation.
NOW, THEREFORE, I, GEORGE W. BUSH, President of the United States of America, do hereby proclaim May 1, 2006, as Loyalty Day. I call upon all the people of the United States to join in support of this national observance, and to display the flag of the United States on Loyalty Day.
Loyalty Day, eh? Yet another in a long-line of sad attempts to turn patriotism into simple minded jingoism that the party faithful can slap on a bumper sticker and plaster all over their cars to show what Good Little Americans they are. I was loyal to this country long before Mr. President decided he had to make a special day for it. Mainly by doing my civic duty of pointing out what an incompetent leader he happens to be.
