In a (not very) interesting article by AP's Ben Feller, we learn that Bush's goal in the second half of his second term will be to "remain relevant."

Ain't that swell. The guy's the most powerful human being on Earth, and yet he needs to stay relevant.

Feller doesn't spell it out (he's a member of the MSM, afterall), but it seems to me that Bush can "remain relevant" the same way he has for the last six years: just make shit up.

He'll try to "cooperate in a bipartisan manner," or "win the peace in Iraq with dignity," or just "shock and awe and surge," or he'll invoke "America's love of freedom," or declare "Mission Accomplished" in his various wars: against terror, drugs, premarital sex, & gay marriage; for the defense of Christmas, Values, looting for the benefit of his wealthy friends, what have you.

Any combination of fibbing, exaggerating and outright lying'll do.

Maybe if he starts announcing he's wearing no underwear, he can become as relevant as Paris Hilton and Jenna Bush?

At least then no one needs to die.

Do not underestimate the power of that which lies beneath the folds of Paris Hilton's skirt, Weas.

Death could occur at any time.

He'll just continue spouting meaningless phrases and empty concepts like he has for the past six years. Meanwhile, soldiers die and Iraq descends further into hell.

Bush just gave the government authority to open and read other people's mail, without a warrant.

I guess he's going to remain relevant by trying to trick us into believing he can read?

Would it be legal for him to issue a signing statement that declares the constitution null and void? Would that be impeachable? Or would we allow him to do it in the interest of healing?

This is the type of thing, yes.

To me, the opening mail nonsense is yet another demonstration of raw power. Nothing more, nothing less.

As with the wiretaps, he can get a warrant to view mail rather easily, but via this Signing Statement he gets to show everyone that he's once again Above The Law.

I. Hate. Him. So. Much.

Reading Dan Shanoff much Mike?

The mail thing was in the News this AM, front page.
Of course, the Post had the Jets/Pats, the mob at a golf course, and an add for "Page 6". Nary a hint of this.

The mail thing is stupid. I agree, it reeks of power for powers sake. There is no good reason for the statement. Cripes, the judges would let him open the mail with a warrant for "any and all muslims" if he asked.

I say, impeach Birdshot Dick. We all know he is the "brains" behind this stuff. Most of it is too smart for George to figure out.

Man, good thing that McCain internet bill is not in place yet Mike, or we would all be in deep do-do.

I say we send Paris to Iraq.

Or would that be cruel and unusual punishment?

Why should Bushbaby care if he's relevant or not? He hasn't given a damn so far. Eat it Bushbaby.

I love the calls for bipartisanship and for no partisanship when Republicans are out of power... because they were SOOO doing that when the Dems were the minority.

Bipartisanship is defined in the Republican dictionary as, "Lick Me".

Lots of interesting speeches being given today on C-Span2.

Bush vetoed one bill in six years. I predict he'll be vetoing a lot more over the next two.

Niiiiice. Someone put a little extra vitriol in your meuslix this morning, Weas. ;-)

Yeah, maybe an extra veto or two from Bush in the coming . . . weeks.

My guess is W releases a rap album. That'll keep him relevant.

Hey, if it's good enough for Ron Artest, it's good enough for the Chief Executive.

Somehow I know that Bush will remain relevant.
