Countdown to Bush's Last Day

Grim Statistics

The Only Bigger Pussy Than Roger Clemens...

...is George Bush. See, Clemens was afraid of facing the Boston Red Sox in his much-anticipated comeback, so he faked an injury to be sure he would face a pathetic team (the Pirates) that was easy for even the Yankees to beat.

Well, George Bush has done the same thing. In a move sure to piss off his far-right fringe supporters, and saying essentially, "I'm a-skeered to face those Democrats," Bush end-arounded what was sure to be an embarrassing public spectacle by pulling the renomination of Gen. Peter Pace as Chair of the Joint Chiefs of Staff because of the speculation that someone might ask him some questions about the war in Iraq. What a fucking coward! I'm no fan of Pace, but Bush throwing him under the bus because the president didn't want a public dissection of the Iraq catastrophe is really beyond the pale of shirking accountability, even for this group. "I am disappointed that circumstances make this kind of a decision necessary," Bob Gates said, when announcing the 180-turn on Pace's nomination. What he neglected to mention, however, is that it is this administration's overwhelming intransigence and criminal disregard for the law that allowed those circumstances to propagate.

Let's hope the next one doesn't have such a tin ear, although I don't hold out much hope.
