“Before I begin, I must point out that behind me sits a highly admired President of the United States and decorated war hero while I, a cable television talk show host, have been chosen to stand here and impart wisdom. I pray I never witness a more damning example of what is wrong with America today.”
— Conan O’Brien, during his recent commencement address at Dartmouth. The president he’s referring to is George H.W. Bush, who was voted out of office in 1992 for Bill Clinton.
And I guarantee that we’ll see even more damning examples of what’s wrong with America in the next year and a half.
