George W. Bush says:
You know, I hear people say, Well, civil war this, civil war that. The Iraqi people decided against civil war when they went to the ballot box.To which, Kos responds:
Where to even start?Ummmm…YEAH.
Good thing the United States didn't have a civil war, what with the elections of 1860 and all. The American people obviously decided against civil war when they went to the ballot box that year and elected Abraham Lincoln.
Update: Attaturk agrees…
Aside from this being a complete non-sequitur, perhaps Mr. Bush should talk to Cheney. For we know that the latter has watched "Ken Burns' 'The Civil War'" enough to realize that secession in the good ol' U.S. of A started in the wake of Mr. Lincoln being elected at the ballot box.
