Bring it, yo

A long time ago, a few of my friends were discussing plans for the 9/11 memorial in NYC. A certain acquaintance (hint: starts with K, rhymes with "heaven") suggested a giant middle finger pointing east, featuring the words "Bring It." This is very funny because it was suggested by Kevin (oops!) and not the leader of the Free World. K-heaven is a great guy, but all things considered, not a conduit through which foreign policy decisions flow. Something tells me in that gut-instinct way, though, that George Bush should not similarly be inviting Iraqi militants to attack U.S. troops.

"There are some who feel that the conditions are such that they can attack us there," Bush said. Extending his right hand for emphasis, he added: "My answer is: Bring 'em on. We've got the force necessary to deal with the security situation."

Via Atrios, blogger Adam Felber spoofs the rest of the speech:

" fact," the President continued, "I don't think Iraqi militants have the guts to kill more Americans. I think they're yeller." Bush, who during Vietnam war bravely combatted an extremely inconvenient schedule, made his remarks a mere 6,211 miles from the front lines.
