On Disappointment

leave a comment »

In 2001, the United States elected* a small, petty, and startlingly incurious man to its highest office and allowed him to remain in charge of the country despite both stark incompetence and outright criminality for eight full years.

Now, for the first time, that man wants to tell his side of the story. Be sure to watch through the long sections of video quotation near the end where Stewart just lets Bush talk. There are those who still, unbelievably, say that despite everything Bush is a “good guy” who was just in over his head—show them this video, show them Bush’s last unrepentant rant.

This is not a good or decent man. This is a deeply destructive idiot who now, at long, long last, limps off in disgrace to the judgment of history, while the rest of us set about cleaning up the things he wrecked.
