Only In NY - Dubya's Exit Speech Upstaged
Imagine that you are Gee Dubya practicing a farewell speech to an entire nation of people who (mostly) hate your guts. This would be your last opportunity to upset normal TV programming, swearing up and down that you didn’t do anything wrong. As you try and make enough spit to polish your legacy, your interruption is interrupted by a bona fide miracle in New York City, courtesy of US Airways.
I would like to thank Chesley B. “Sully” Sullenberger for reminding us what NYC looks like when everything goes right. Sully is an accomplished pilot who successfully ditched a commercial airliner on the Hudson River, after his engines were killed by evildoing geese. A water landing of a lifetime. Well blow me down and call me your booger!
You know what NYC looks like when bad things happen with jets. Not this time. Tragedy averted and everyone lived!
The verdict is in. Our world IS a better without Dubya. Dubya who? He was on TV last night? Whatever man, whatever.
Enjoy your pre-Inauguration weekend festivities. If you think the water-landing was good, brace yourselves again. A guy riding a unicorn will take full responsibility for the US on Tuesday. Noon. Don’t miss it!
