No Joy in Gloating Over Bush's Low Ratings

Who has the stomach to celebrate after all the havoc his administration has wreaked? Besides, embarrassment before the rest of the world that he's our president has long since turned into shame that we failed to remove him from office. (Or indict his people for the polling violations that enabled him to remain in power.)
Worse, Bush & Co. continue to implement their agenda, if now at a halting place. In spite of a public grown war-weary, it saber-rattles in the direction of Iran. And even though we evince signs we've finally become leery of the administration's subterfuges, it's defiant about NSA spying.
The administration may be on the rocks, but, like bin Laden issuing his faux fatwas from the tribal country of Pakistan, it's still barking mad commands from its beached wheelhouse.
