The (S)hits Just Keep On Comin'
My recent post comparing Bush's last-minute antics to a burgler crapping on the bed on his way out the door needs updating. It really is pretty awful: it's hard to see it as anything but a middle finger in the eye of the public -- particularly those librul earth-lovers.
It's as if, in a perverse sort of way, he feels liberated: the "permanent campaign" is over, his approval ratings are crap. Gone is pretense; no need to make up empty phrases like "compassionate conservative." So this is he, the real George Bush.
Surprise. I still don't like it.
