Post-Mortems of the Bush Administration

Always Worse than Your Worst Expectations

Just when you think you might have plumbed the depths of the abyss that it the Bush Justice Department, no, the Bush Administration, comes this:

More Allegations of Misconduct in Alabama Governor Case.

I might have suspected that a recused official would remain deeply involved in a case, but I would never have suspected illicit communications with a jury.

If recent history is any guide, there must be many more skeletons in the White House closets. The Bush team has worked hard to cover its tracks — see for example it wholesale evasion of the rules requiring the archiving of email — but who knows what else is waiting to be revealed.

Less than 100 to Go

Less than 100 days to go before the inauguration, and in anticipation I've moved my countdown clock from the very bottom of the blog, where it has rested for years, up to the top so that it may enjoy a moment in the sun before its retirement.

Inaugurations are at 12 noon on January 20th of the year following the November election. If you are wondering why the clock shows what seems to be an extra hour, I think it is because this counter cleverly includes the extra hour for the move off Daylight Savings Time, the last Sunday in October, when we gain an hour (“Spring forward, Fall back”).
