I really do. There have been few other exemplars that provide me with so many teaching points! It's like one-stop-shopping for examples of lack of awareness, the effects of television as a hot medium relative to political manipulation, how figure without ground is devoid of meaning (and therefore you can say almost anything so long as you preclude context), and much else. But, unfortunately, all good things must come to an end, and soon everyone - even the heretofore clueless ones - will realize that President George W Bush has been, shall we say, less than truthful (say it isn't so!) and that the ground is clearly evident... or it will be, once all the water gets pumped out.
