The door episode reminds me of an anecdote from Thatcher's time as UK PM. One of her ministers (Heseltine?) would occasionally storm out of cabinet meetings. Once he tried to do it, and the door wouldn't open. And the next one wouldn't either. So he sheepishly gave up and sat down again.
I'm as happy as anyone that the Bush years are over, but is it really necessary to adopt the gloating and downright nasty tone of the last week or so?
Jeroen - the problem with "the gloating and downright nasty tone of the last week or so" is not that it's unnecessary, but that it's insufficient.
Indictment and arrest on multiple charges of misfeasance, malfeasance, and crimes against humanity would be more appropriate.
Jeroen - I understand your irritation, but be patient. A lot of us have been frustrated (to say the least) over the last 8 years, and it'll take a bit of time to get it out of the system.
Cute. I wonder what the little kid made of it.
That was cute, but I don't think President Obama would go for it. He's a bit above the fray, no?
Since this was from Living the Scientific Life, I was expecting a thump on the head to Bush for his advancement of Intelligent Design? Would that be an oxymoron, or just a malapropism?
