A sentence from President George W. Bush’s address to Ms. Mostoller’s class at Alice Deal Junior High School in Washington, D.C. on October 1, 1991:
“Write me a letter — and I’m serious about this one — write me a letter about ways you can help us achieve our goals.”
Here is the entire speech, if you are interested in reading it.
What has changed, other than the rise of the lunatic fringe of the Republican Party, led by Hannity, Coulter, Bachmann, O’Reilly, Beck, Palin, and Limbaugh?
Update 09/09/2009: Got the location of Alice Deal Junior High School wrong – it is in Chevy Chase, MD, not in D.C.
Update 09/12/2009: Nope, MapQuest shows that Alice Deal, at 3815 Fort Dr. N.W., is inside the corporate limits of Washington, D.C. It is close to Chevy Chase, but it is not inside the corporate limits of Chevy Chase.
