A Note (For the very few that still watch this space). Work is very busy, coupled with a lot of blogs being blocked at work and other professional pursuits, time to blog has truly become a premium. I miss reading the blogs I used to frequent, I will still try to read when I can, but this blog will now likely be more of a chronicle of things that strike my fancy or intrigue me or a place to vent. Talking about which... The Palin Rallies Seem To Have A Much Higher Preponderance Of Teh Stupid! From an oped by Gail Collins in the NYT link.

One woman at a Sarah Palin rally told The Times’s Robbie Brown that she was terrified that Obama was “going to push a socialist agenda” but that she was sure “Saxby Chambliss can stop him.” Now Chambliss has been a senator for six years, and his greatest achievement was getting ranked the 33rd best golfer in Washington by Golf Digest. It is highly unlikely that he could stop the president from doing anything beyond making a putt

The Worst President Ever

No easy street for Bush once he's out of office

The process of relinquishing the most powerful job in the world isn't an easy one. Besides overseeing the construction of a presidential library and writing his memoirs, President Bush must also grapple with salvaging a legacy mired in the lowest presidential approval ratings in history.
Says the headline on CNNs web site. After the damage he inflicted upon this country I am not exactly worried that he has no easy street. Just go away already and spare us! If he cares about his legacy he can work with the Democrats and President elect Obama to get something meaningful done before he leaves office, even if it is not things he likes and is truly helpful for the country. That would do something for his "legacy", but knowing his track record, I am not holding my breath! And it is not just about him!

Hey Sanjay!

I hear you about the paucity of time...maybe once the festive season is over we'll all have a little more time? We can hope, no? :)

Yup, George Bush's retirement is going to be an interesting one. Most people travel the world when they retire but in Bush's case that's going to be practically impossible as I can see very few countries wanting to host him! Also, no one is going to pay him big bucks for a speech a la Clinton, nor is he good at negotiating peace agreements like some other ex Presidents...perhaps he'll just have to stay on his ranch and enjoy the scenery!

Hiya Lotus! I know about the paucity of time. :-/ I sure hope there is more time, I do miss blogging the way I used to.

You are so right about Bush and him not being welcome most places, now I think people would surely pay for Bush... to shut up and not speak! lol!
Although he ain't going back to his ranch! Most of us knew the ranch was just a prop (it was not even a functioning ranch). The Bushes recently bough a 2 million dollar home in a exclusive neighborhood in Dallas. link
Thank you so much for the comment, and have a wonderful Sunday.
