A Sign of the End Times . . .

. . . that I don't have anything particularly vitriolic to say about the words of George Bush, who appears to at least be genuinely trying to understand this whole World Cup business.

Were he actually the Texas good ol' boy he plays on TV, as opposed to a privileged scion of the well-to-do New England moneyed class (oops, there I go with the snippy), I might find his earnest befuddlement a bit more endearing, but for a man suspicious of all things foreign (or worse--European), it's nice to see the tournament acknowledged as worthwhile as opposed to say, some kind of French plot to humiliate the US.
