Thanks for the Laughs

In a time when world events are highlighting the disasters of the Bush administration and he continues to say stupid things like "get Syria to get Hezbollah to stop doing this shit and it's over" or
"this nation is at war with Islamic fascists", NPR entertains us with an interview with Kenneth Walsh (graphic image warning--only for strong stomachs). Walsh has written a book on presidential retreats. One might expect to hear about our "vacation President" and especially last summer's Crawford adventures of our Boy Emperor hiding from Cindy and playing rancher while Rome burned (drowned)--but instead we get to hear G.W. compared to the first G.W. chilling out at slave central (Mt. Vernon), Lincoln retreating from the pressures of his civil war, or FDR seeking respite from running the war against an earlier Axis of evil. You've got to love NPR's unwitting, twisted sense of humor!
