Bush & the Bard

Remember when Bush said he read "The Stranger" (!) over the summer? He also said that he read "three Shakespeares." I couldn't help but think, "Sonnets, right?"

I wonder if our president read Henry V? You know, the tale of an errant youth of privilege whose father instructs him to "busy giddy minds with foreign quarrels"? Or when he asks his advisors "may I with right and conscience make this claim?" on a foreign land? I believe there was a brief discussion on how other countries might view the invasion, but the matter was quickly dropped. Henry V wondered if the country might be vulnerable to other attacks while the troops were overseas, but his theocons assured him that God and their countrymen could secure their homeland. After a series of horrific war crimes, Henry V returned to England as their "conquering Caesar."

Nah, he probably hasn't read it. Not enough pictures.
