not a bush quote:
(bush) is a catastrophe that walks like a man. On your watch we've lost almost all of our allies, the budget surplus, four airliners, two trade centers, a piece of the pentagon and the city of New Orleans... Now it's time to do what you do best: lost interest and walk away, like you did with your miltary service and the oil company and the baseball team... Yes, God speaks to you. And he's saying, 'Take a hint.' "
bill maher, article "Why Don't We Have a Recall", Los Angeles Times, sept 9 2005
