In a week's time, the administration of George W. Bush will be over. This page has been in existence for much of the Bush years. Together we have witnessed the illegal wars, the fear-mongering, the flagrant violations of the Geneva Convention, wiretaps, outright electoral fraud in Ohio which cost John Kerry a chance to end the madness in 2004, institutionalized corporate welfare, the myopic whistling past humanity's environmental graveyard, the polarization between the True Believers and the "Reality-Based Community" and Vice-Presidential shots to the Constitution, and of course, to the face.
While Bush has admitted that the "Mission Accomplished" banner was a mistake, I honestly can't tell if his assertion that America has not lost any moral standing during his time in office is comic or tragic. At least Bush doesn't have to look back after he gets on the helicopter on January 20. The rest of the world will be stuck looking back at the reign of terror of this flippant idiot and his arch-fascist minions, to try and explain why the precipice of an apocalypse has never looked closer.
