Regrets? Not any longer

The sleepwalker of history is sleeping even sounder today.

George Bush got that apology from Kanye West.

Now he doesn’t recall a single god-damned bad moment in his whole Presidency.

Peggy Noonan (the interviewer): You were separated on September 11th. What was it like when you saw each other again?…

George W. Bush: But the day ended on a relatively humorous note.

A tad abbreviated, but not really unfair.

But when has Bush ever not had an inappropriate laugh?

A DNA test on a single hair has cast doubt on the guilt of a Texas man who was put to death 10 years ago for a liquor-store murder — an execution that went forward after then-Gov. George W. Bush’s staff failed to tell him the condemned man was asking for genetic analysis of the strand…

[Attorney Barry] Scheck said he believes “to a moral certainty” that Bush would have granted a 30-day reprieve had he known Jones was seeking DNA testing.

Please, he was having the same laugh he had over Karla Faye Tucker.

"The President Ultimately Made the Call"



In 1949, I decided to wrestle professionally, starting my career in Texas. In my debut, I defeated Abe Kashey, with former World Heavyweight boxing Champion Jack Dempsey as the referee. In 1950, I captured the NWA Junior Heavyweight title. In 1953, I won the Chicago version of the NWA United States Championship. I became one of the most well-known stars in wrestling during the golden age of television, thanks to my exposure on the Dumont Network, where I wowed audiences with my technical prowess. I was rumored to be one of the highest paid wrestlers during the 1950s, reportedly earning a hundred thousand dollars a year. My specialty was "the Sleeper Hold" and the founding of modern, secular, Turkey.

Oops, sorry, that's the biography of Verne Gagne with a touch of Mustafa Kemal.

I'm just an average moron who in reality is a practicing civil rights and employment attorney in fly-over country .
