Random commentary and senseless acts of blogging.
The first Republican president once said, "While the people retain their virtue and their vigilance, no administration by any extreme of wickedness or folly can seriously injure the government in the short space of four years." If Mr. Lincoln could see what's happened in these last three-and-a-half years, he might hedge a little on that statement.

Last night's SNL was soft on Bush as they almost always are, but made up a little in the opening sketch by being brutal on the invertabrate delta-minuses in the White House press corps. The opening sketch was a parody of Bush's press conference with questions even dumber than the real ones. My personal favorite was a reporter from the 'Homeless Street News' who asked, "Mr President, can I have a dollar? And I have a follow-up. Can I have another dollar?" The only reporter in the sketch who asked hard questions, obviously intended to be Helen Thomas, was gagged and then tranquilized with a dart.
