2006 Wrap-up? No

But it’s emblematic that on the penultimate day of 2006, President George W. Bush couldn’t be bothered to attend President Gerald Ford’s funeral. He couldn’t be bothered to cut his vacation short to look into the Katrina disaster in New Orleans either. Yesterday, our wee leader was clearing brush and riding his bike on his ranch in Texas and he sent his regrets to the Ford family. It’s fairly obvious that George Bush was so pissed off at Ford’s remarks about Bush's unnecessary war in Iraq that he threw one of his patented spoiled brat hissy fits. The Washington Post’s Bob Woodward had published Ford’s comments posthumously on December 28th. Because of that eye-popping article, you can bet the rent that the hanging of Saddam Hussein was pushed up by the White House. Take that, President Ford! Let’s see who gets the headlines now! And you wondered who runs Iraq…the Iraqis or the United States? Now you know. No, this is not a wrap-up of the failures and foolishness embarked on by the Bush administration during 2006. But the antics of our petulant, self-absorbed, sociopath president at the very end of this disastrous year typify the leadership of the Bush administration for the whole of 2006 to a T. That’s all I’m saying.
