revrendjim: nekom: He did good things in Africa.  Can't say he was the greatest President we've had, but I do have to give him credit where credit is due.

And how much did his Africa trips cost the taxpayers?


Not as much as Obama's, naturally.  Obama's trip cost ALL the money.  Every last cent of it.

The university still plans to give President Bush an award. They're just going to rename it.

Christopher Hill, the dean of the Korbel School that will be giving the award, says the award will be named something "along the lines of 'The Chancellor's Award' or the 'Presidential Award'" instead.


"Sir, on behalf of the Korbel School and the University of Denver, we'd like to present you with the "Thank God for Small Favors Presidential Award." We know you had it in you to push the little red button on your desk, sending us all into an apocalyptic nuclear nightmare from which the world would never recover. Instead, you only invaded a few countries, enabled the crash of the world economy, and supported extrajudicial imprisonment and torture.

So we proudly present you with this award for not blowing up the entire planet. As bad as you were, you could have been worse."

Ted Kennedy's Brain Tumor: If George W. Bush is a criminal for launching the Iraq War, he at worst joins an esteemed list of U.S. Presidents in the waging of unnecessary, misguided or outright shamefully predatory wars. I don't see us or the international community clamoring to demolish monuments to McKinley, Wilson and Polk (to name a few of the more egregious offenders).

I will save your country. I'll start by bombing a restaurant in a residential neighborhood.

I'll help your country. I'll start by destroying all of your bridges and power plants.

I'll bring you democracy and freedom. I'll start by hiring a bunch of mercenaries to drag you from your homes and drag you from your cars and destroy you from the air.

I'll rebuild your country. I'll do it by hiring all of my buddy's companies to rebuild all the stuff I destroyed in the first place. What, you want a job rebuilding your country? Nope. Sorry. Dick Cheney's pals need a few billion from my treasury.

I wish there was a hell so Dubya could burn in it.
