Another good one from the Onion

onion logoIn the general category of semi-funny insights into deeper truths, this week's Onion headline story is Bush Vows to Eliminate U.S. Dependence on Oil by 4920.
"Our mission is clear," Bush said in a speech delivered at Fort Bragg in North Carolina. "We must free ourselves from dependence on fossil fuels within 85 generations. A cleaner, safer America is my vision. And it is our great, great—great-times-80 grandchildren who will realize that vision."
Sigh. There's also a photo with the caption "Above: U.S. soldiers prepare to withdraw from Iraq in the unfathomably distant future."
