Although the Daily Show is in reruns for the strike, Bush continues to write is own material anyway. See: Bush More Emphatic In Backing Musharraf. Some of the best lines:

[T]he general “hasn’t crossed the line” and “truly is somebody who believes in democracy.”

“Today, I thought, was a pretty good signal, that he released thousands of people from jail.”

“Musharraf has made a mistake and took a detour — we are hopeful that he will restore the constitution and get the country back to that path to democracy.”

“He’s been a loyal ally in fighting terrorists. He’s also advanced democracy in Pakistan,” Bush said. “He has said he’s going to take off his uniform. He’s said there will be elections. Today he released prisoners, and so far I’ve found him to be a man of his word.”

And when he takes off the uniform, of course everything will be hunky dory and he’ll just pat those nice lawyers he jailed on the back and say “I’m sorry” and then he’ll restore the Supreme Court and also rule over all of Imagination Land.

We might want to chastise Biden, too: “If the president sees Musharraf as a democrat, he must be wearing the same glasses he had on when he looked in Vladimir Putin‘s soul.”
