The Bush Legacy

Back in January, President Bush predicted that by the end of his term, thanks to his Too Little Too LateTM brand of foreign policy, the Israelis and Palestinians would have signed a peace treaty.

How's that working out?

Soul Survivor

Headline on Drudge:

BUSH: 'I didn't compromise my soul to be a popular guy'...

I haven't actually read the article yet. Does it say why he did compromise his soul?

The War on Christmas

My wife took our daughter to the mall yesterday to get a photo of her sitting on Santa's lap.

Packages start at $18.

No personal cameras allowed.

I guess that approximates the Christmas spirit for an industry that thinks trampled security guards is the price of doing business.

Bah humbug!

A Chicago Original

After reading the complaint against Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich—which includes staggering allegations that he brazenly tried to sell Obama's vacated senate seat to the highest bidder, threatened to scuttle the Tribune Company's plans to sell Wrigley Field if they didn't fire Chicago Tribune editorial board members who had been sharply critical of him, and contemplated appointing himself to Obama's old seat in preparation for, get this, a possible 2016 presidential run (not kidding)—I am convinced that he truly embodies the maxim of one of Chicago's favorite sons, architect Daniel Burnham: make no little plans.

Indeed.

Now Illinoisans need to see if they can elect a governor who won't make a direct trip from the Governor's Mansion to federal prison. They're 0 for 2 on that count in recent memory.

Hate to say it, but this makes Sarah Palin's Troopergate corruption scandal look like amateur hour.
