Incredible as it may seem, the past eight years of the current administration are quickly passing, coming to an end. I have no idea what I'll do next year if no one gives me a new desk calendar -maybe one that is the "Absolute Best of Bush Over the Years" or something like that. Who know, maybe someone is preparing another day calendar with quotes of some other type, equally crazy, zany, absurd, at times. I'll have to check this out I guess.
But in the meantime, here's this week's group of Bushisms.
