I do, however, have to note one point of extreme irony.
Keith began his soliloquy by sputtering on about the fact that nothing has been done yet at Ground Zero:
Five years later this space is still empty. Five years later there is no memorial to the dead. Five years later there is no building rising to show with proud defiance that we would not have our America wrung from us, by cowards and criminals. Five years later this country's wound is still open. Five years later this country's mass grave is still unmarked. Five years later this is still just a background for a photo-op. It is beyond shameful.Interestingly enough, you'll probably notice as I did that right behind Keith when he's saying this is, umm, Ground Zero. So apparently using Ground Zero for the background in a photo-op is "beyond shameful," but using it for the background of a televised political attack against the President on the anniversary of the attack that created that empty space is patriotic.
