So, there's a thread on JoS?off about how Bush is now apologizing for the government fucking up on Katrina. Everyone's taking a bite out of him (and I'm happily joining the pack), when one guy comes in and says,

Good Lord! The man takes responsibility and all he gets from everyone is a load of shit. Besides resigning or killing himself I doubt there is anything Bush could do that would make you folks happy.

Now, two things. One, Bush's opponents are at this point not perfectly rational, in fact for a lot of them it's personal, and they actually hate him - so yes, there is very little he could really do to assuage them. Two, I read Russian blogs and internet sites and watch the news, and I am completely baffled by the Russians' conviction that Putin is personally responsible for every fuckup in the country; so for all the crap Bush has done, Katrina is not his fault, and I have no basis for judgement as to whether the federal agencies did a good job on it or not.

But my god, that would be bloody brilliant! Just imagine - the President of the United States of America, the person who runs the entire country, especially this particular one, unchecked by court or Congress, handing in his resignation! Not because he got caught fucking schoolgirls up the arse, but because the people don't think he's doing a good job!!!

Would do wonders for the American political scene, I think. Be the greatest legacy to the nation and the world than anything else that wanker could ever hope to accomplish.
