Re: Living in Godless America

25 01 2007

Paul Kedrosky: “Welcome, apparently, to Godless America. One of the unremarked-upon quirks of GW Bush’s State of the Union speech last night was the disappearance of God from the text’s closing.”

That’s not really true, apparently, as some commenters pointed out, and the New York Times’ SoU Analyzer confirms: Bush did say “God bless” at the end of his speech.

I wish it were true, though. As George W. Bush, for the first time in the history of his State of the Union addresses, pronounced the words “climate change”, having this latter phrase present, while “god” were absent, would have clearly been a case of reality trumping fantasy, for once.
