Spooky words from the past

Fancy a little time travel?  This time eight years ago, satirical magazine The Onion reported on the new Bush presidency.

Bush: ‘Our Long National Nightmare Of Peace And Prosperity Is Finally Over’

It may have been a joke,  but reading it now, it comes across as historical fact.  It seems amazing that the prediction was so accurate,  but is it really that amazing or was it there for all to see from the start?

One thought on “Spooky words from the past

  1. You could argue that Bush’s desire to be the anti-Clinton became apparent very early.

    But the descent of US mainstream conservatism into self-parody still defies explanation.
