Earlier today we had a moment of nostalgia for the Bush era, when our president would lend a note of levity to serious moments by hilariously butchering the English language. Then we read about how this week the U.S. finally signed a U.N. agreement to decriminalize homosexuality, a declaration the Bush administration refused to ratify last year. The United States at that time was the only Western nation not to sign. Needless to say, our moment of nostalgia was short-lived. [Reuters]
