Thursday on The Daily Show, Jon Stewart took a trip back to Mess O'Potamia to reflect on President Bush's 2003 speech during the run up to the invasion of Iraq in front of the National Religious Broadcasters. The event was held at the Gaylord Opryland, where Bush claimed Saddam Hussein was lying about having WMDs. Fast forward to 2008, after all the WMD propaganda has been debunked and Iraq is in shambles, and the president once again spoke in front of the NRB and once again, the event was held at the Gaylord Opryland.

"Five years ago in the build up to the Iraq war, President Bush gave a speech to a group called the National Religious Broadcasters at a hotel in Nashville, Tennessee called the GAYLORD Opryland Resort & Convention Center. I'M NOT KIDDING. The evangelical group stayed at the GAYLORD. Apparently, it's a hotel for people who are gay for the Lord."
