Talking Turkey

"Lo! the great Anarch's ancient reign restor'd,
Light dies before her uncreating word." (III 339-40)

Settle invokes the second coming of stupidity, urging,

"Thy hand great Dulness! lets the curtain fall,
And universal Darkness covers all." (III 355-6)
[Alexander Pope: Dunciad]
Alas, friends, it is that time of year. Let us not forgive Bush any sins, let us remember his vanity, which is, all things said and done, his stupidity.
