Too bad W isn't really this smart

With all of the heated discussion on the web recently (examples here, here, here, here, here, and here, for instance) about the absolutely execrable design chosen for the Flight 93 Memorial, isn't it ironic that the best post I've seen on the subject yet was written as satire? From Scott Ott (G W Bush should be half as smart):

"The people who died in Pennsylvania fighting for control of United Flight 93 on September 11, 2001, don't need a new memorial," said Mr. Bush. "In very real sense, they already have two memorials: We call them The White House and the Capitol Building."

Mr. Bush explained that since one of those two buildings was the likely target for the Muslim terrorists who hijacked the plane, "the fact that they're both still standing is a lasting tribute to the people who gave their lives fighting evil."

"Every time you see those white pillars or that gleaming dome," the president said, "remember the 40 Americans who volunteered in a moment to defend freedom with their own blood. Remember the ones who looked fear in the face and said, 'Let's Roll.'"
