George Bush Is Busy Defending (Unnamed) Principles and Implementing (Ditto) Policy Especially Mountain Biking

Abby Zimet

Your Monday dose of rage: In honor of the upcoming opening of his so-called presidential library, George W. Bush crawled out of his cave for a rare interview with the Dallas Morning News to say he felt just fine about everything he did, thanks, including starting for no conceivable reason those little wars in Iraq and Afghanistan that according to a new study will end up costing between $4 and $6 trillion, and as-yet untold pain, grief and loss. The vacancy is terrifying: There is, quite simply, no there there. Bonus: Bill Maher on Bush's legacy,  North Korea and our tradition as "the war people....Anything with war in the title, we are so there."

"I'm confident the decisions were made the right way... I'm comfortable with what I did."
