Every once in a while I stare with incredulity at some article written by some neocon that makes excuses for the colossal corruption, calamity plagued, unpopular presidency of president Bush.
William Kristol recently laid down a glowing tribute to Mr. Mission Accomplished, Mr. Compassionate Katrina, Mr. Stuck in Iraq, Mr. Unsmoked Osama, Mr. Anthrax got away, Mr. Jobs to China, Mr. Falls on Face, Mr. Chokes on Pretzel, Mr. Republican Albatross, Mr. Delusional, Mr. Out-of-touch, Mr. Albanian Hero, Mr. Bush:
