What's your take?

Look at the expression on the presidunce's face. It's that demi-smirk of his that I find so infuriating but at the same time so revealing. It is the falsely self-confident smile of the prodigal. He knows that no matter how bad it gets, no matter how much collateral damage, he will always be pulled from the brink, he will always be saved by his privilege, his connections, by his father and his father's friends in Texas, Riyadh, Washington.

Is it enough to wish oblivion on this soul? For history to forever associate his name with the terminal decline of our nation? For if we are the modern Rome, then George W. Bush is our Nero.

Tomorrow, let's fill the streets of the capital with our indignation. Get up. Stand up. Stand up for your rights.
