Quote of The Day

"I love my country a lot more than I love politics."—Former president and persistent fucko George W. Bush, in his first post-presidency speech.

Coulda fooled me, Mr. Wedge Politics Culture War With-Us-or-Against-Us Asshole.

In fairness, that laughably ridiculous statement did precede his asserting that it's "essential" to help President Obama succeed and that he would not be a public critic of the new president—which is maybe the classiest thing he's ever done.

Not saying much, since it's well-established tradition that former presidents don't publicly comment on current presidencies. Still. We are talking about the guy who had no problem farting in the general direction of 700 years of tradition. The soft bigotry of low expectations strikes again.

It almost certainly also marks the first time Cheney could learn something from Bush.
