A Really Bad Day
Yesterday poor President Bush had a day similar to Judith Viorst's character, Alexander, who was cursed with the Terrible, Horrible, Not Good Very Bad Day.
Both feel as if nobody understands them and that retreating to Australia seems to be a good idea. There is one major difference. Alexander really is understood and has a happy ending. Bush really is understood, but the only way the American public will have an even moderately less dismal result from Iraq will be if he actually does move to Australia.
All the real grown ups told Bush he was a complete and total failure and needed to sit down, shut up and let them run things. The chances that he will do so rank somewhere between slim and none.
Perhaps we could call in Donald Trump in to say sternly: You're Fired! Oops that is the job of the Congress. Maybe they could give us all a wonderful, marvelous, good, very happy day.
