Stunning. Just stunning. It just occurred to me that if w.Caesar doesn’t get elected next week [after being merely selected in 2000] then both Bush presidents will have been robbed of their silver-spoon birthright of a second term.

And as much as Bill Minutaglio and Frank Bruni’s biographies of w.Caesar note his hatred for that bastard reprobate Clinton for stealing his father’s second term [honour thy father and all that], he’ll likely only have himself and his fellow idealogues to blame for his lost second term. And his hardball idiocy with North Korea. And Abu Ghraib. And the constitution-free zone at Gitmo. And the missing WMDs.

And the Haliburton pillaging. And praising George Tenet’s fantastic job of the slam dunk Iraqi WMD case. And alienating allies. And and and and…
