Your Monday dose of rage: In honor of the upcoming opening of his so-called presidential library, George W.

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."
