“Goodbye from the world’s biggest polluter.”

President Bush today embarrassed our country for the umpteenth time at the end of the G8 summit:

The American leader, who has been condemned throughout his presidency for failing to tackle climate change, ended a private meeting with the words: “Goodbye from the world’s biggest polluter.”

He then punched the air while grinning widely, as the rest of those present including Gordon Brown and Nicolas Sarkozy looked on in shock.

Every time I think I can no longer be shocked by anything that comes out of his mouth, he manages to top himself.

Call me silly, call me elitist, I don’t care. I am glad we’re coming to the close of the presidency of someone you’d “want to have a beer with.” I’d rather have someone who doesn’t make me cringe every time he opens his mouth.

Rove refuses to testify. Shocked and appalled I’m not.

Karl Rove, Machiavellian slime ball extraordinaire, refused to appear before a Congressional hearing this morning based on….wait for it…executive privelege! I wish I was joking.

That’s right. Mr. Rove is so sure of his place (and rightly so, Bush isn’t going to let anything happen to his beloved Fartblossom) he’s actually stating that he is on the same level as the unitary executive and immune from such silly things as Congressional subpoenas. Enough, already. Send the Sargeant at Arms and frogmarch his ass over to the nearest available jail cell for contempt.

It must be said that it’s intolerable that a man who finds it perfectly acceptable to punish people for imagined wrongdoing considers himself above right and wrong. For over seven years now, we have forgotten the second word in the term “public SERVANT.” Mr. Rove is responsible for helping to pull down most of the foundations on which this country was built. Because of him, historians will point to this as the most disastrous presidency in our history (yes, I know about Buchanan, Harding and Pierce; all richly deserving of the term “some of the worst”….and NO, none of the Presidents since Truman fall under that category with the possible exception of Nixon, but even he was useful…opened up China).  Because of him, there is a trench deeper in this nation than has existed since the Civil war. He has put us on the path of our own destruction, and for that he deserves not an inch of leniency or mercy.
