11/23/2005: Today's GEM...
"As visual metaphors go, it was a lavishly gilded lily of an image, a hanging curveball across the plate, a George Tenet-style slam-dunk: A weary President Bush, trying to escape a news conference in Beijing on Sunday, strides away from the microphone to a pair of locked doors, which he pulls and tugs in vain. No exit , the image screamed. No way out. Of course, George Bush will inevitably get out of the mess he has made -- he leaves office in three years and two months, not that anyone's counting. But the rest of us will be left with his handiwork: crushing national debt, rising economic inequality, a poisoned political atmosphere and, oh, yes, the war in Iraq. We're the ones trapped in the dark with no exit sign in sight..."
-- No Way Out For Bush Co: Eugene Robinson (NY Times)
Well, that's about the SIZE of it, Mr. Robinson.
And BTW...WE are counting down the days as Len has posted a *count-down* clock of the days left in the CIC presidency on the sidebar. *wink*
