Strange Bedfellows . . .

. . .in an ironic sense of the phrase.

The Hillbuzz Boys have had an epiphany in the wake of the Ft. Hood terrorist attack.

It's a sweet and protective bit of big-hearted love and apologies offered sincerely. The comments, too, are gratifying to those of us who always knew who George Bush really was, knew his intelligence and sense of duty.

So don't forget to hail a Veteran of the political trenches, our former Commander In Chief, who is garnering new respect in the quiet continuation of his convictions and his patriotic duty.

Between reading that, and reading The Anchoress' beautiful post about Great Men You Don't Know, I am ashamed that at times I despair. At times I think the darkness will overcome the Light. It can't, not when there are still Boy Scouts who vow, "On my honor, I will do my best. . ."

Agree with his policies or not, Bush was a class act. Unfortunately, it doesn't seem like he was followed by one.

Good find on the link too.

Enjoyed the Hillbuzz thing a lot. Bush is a very good man, I believe. Very good.

I've had the same conversation with many people. I didn't always agree with Dubya but he was what he was, a Proud American who did his best to defend this great Country. He never apologized for the United States and he kept Her safe. God Bless You George and your truly first class First Lady, you will be sorely missed. Good luck and many good wishes in your private years to come. Thank you for your service to God and Country.

yes, thankfully there are Boy Scouts who make that vow and try to live up to it daily. Unlike the current Prez who doesn't seem to know a damn thing about our Constitution (which is odd for a man allegedly a Constitutional Scholar, no?) and who has gone way beyond violating his own oath of office to protect and defend said document.

Wow. Great post and great links. While I think we're so doomed, hopefully metaphorically, it's good to read shit like this.

Thanks.
