Our "likeable" President comes up with a new euphemism for "killing"

Today: "[their] careers ... came to an end".

From Bush's infamous 2003 State of the Union speech: "They are no longer a problem".

But then one thing Incurious George has always been incurious about is putting people to death. "A close examination of the Gonzales memoranda suggests that Governor Bush frequently approved executions based on only the most cursory briefings on the issues in dispute."

And we can't say we weren't warned: "Bush ... mimicked convicted murderer turned Christian Karla Faye Tucker begging, 'Please don't kill me,' something she never actually did."

Saddam is evil. Saddam's sons are evil.
