Monkeys: Exit butt now! Fly, boys, fly!

The rapture may be upon us, and Hell may be freezing over as we speak. And take a look outside, because pigs may be flying.

Why do I say all of this? Because today, something happened that approached "when pigs fly" status! George W. Bush said this:
"And to the extent that the federal government didn't fully do its job right, I take responsibility."

For those of you who have not been paying attention, this marks the first time ever that the words "I take responsibility" have left the president's lips. Good work, Mr. President.

And now on to Supreme Court nomination hearings. I hate it when people that I like come across as idiots, and people I do not want to like come across as quite brilliant. Case in point: Joe Biden, senator from Delaware, has always been a favorite of mine for his knack for speaking the truth in an unvarnished way. But today, he was a ding-dong (Oh, I went there). He just blabbed on and on, grilling John Roberts about some memo he wrote 23 years ago.
John Roberts, on the other hand, impressed me very much. He was eloquent, intelligent, and personable, and his knowledge of the law is unparalleled. Unless he is pulling a fast one on the Senate, I think that -- all fears aside -- he will turn out to be a good choice. I don't agree with his politics, but I am firm believer in the "Three Branches" system, and seems to understand the role of the Court in our system.

So I have said good things about two separate stories involving George W. Bush. Good God! The rapture truly is upon us.

Bush completely pulled a fast one on us. Accepting responsibility for something. This can only mean one thing... he's probably going to start a war with Mother Nature and is looking for some good public opinion polls.

when you opinion numbers have hit the basement you really cant go any lower. unless somehow a Saudi sets off a dirty bomb in NYC and in response we invade Egypt. I mean lets be reasonable.

chris, a saudi setting off a bomb and our response being an invasion of egypt would be reasonable (or more rational) considering the standards set by invading iraq after 9/11. in fact this may make bush's job approval tick up out of the single digits.

Egypt is probably closer to Saudi Arabia than Iraq is to Afghanistan. That is, as the crow flies, I mean.

actually its true geographically. Saudi Arabia is seperated from Eqypt by only the red sea, and Afghanistan is seperated from iraq by the entire country of Iran (which is pretty big). so yeah.

I bet we could seriously fuck poverty up and everyone knows that hunger is a paper tiger. Come on, guys.

"Clothing the naked" is probably the biggest issue that we face today, of course.

Um can someone please explain how Bush has started a war on black people?

(An appropriate explanation of mine is "Taylor Stevenson is a political neophyte")

That seems about right. Though I did hear rumor that Bush was sending troops into Detroit.
