Tome On His Hands
George W. Bush's triumphant trip to Albania marks the official start of the last phase of his tenure. He was already a lame duck, but his handlers had plans to revive his reputation. Now there's nothing left but his legacy to think about.
I mean, the guy had to go to Albania to get a hero's reception. My favorite take on this is John Kelso's column in this morning's Austin American-Statesman, "Since Albanians Love Bush, Let Them Have His Library":
It seems likely that Dubya's library will be placed on the SMU campus in Dallas. Too bad, because I agree with Kelso:
I'm one step ahead of you, John. Why not save some money, for a change, and use some of those "mobile production facilities for biological agents" that Colin Powell warned the world in February 2003 were roaming around Iraq full of WMD? After all, the Bush regime borrowed those trucks from Jonny Quest.
Dust off those trucks, Bush. Maybe you'll be remembered as The Great Recycler.
