Prescience

Back when the administration changed hands in 2001, The Onion put out a satirical article on the president-elect's plans for the country: "Our Long National Nightmare of Peace and Prosperity is Finally Over." Here's a scary paragraph:

"We as a people must stand united, banding together to tear this nation in two," Bush said. "Much work lies ahead of us: The gap between the rich and the poor may be wide, [but] there's much more widening left to do. We must squander our nation's hard-won budget surplus on tax breaks for the wealthiest 15 percent. And, on the foreign front, we must find an enemy and defeat it."

It's enough to make me laugh, and then cry.
