Bipartisanship at last …

I personally think bipartisanship is overrated – particularly if it involves today’s GOP. (Maybe tomorrow’s GOP will be different.)

Some people still celebrate it though. Sort of …

Morford: What's your poison, citizen? / New game! Which toxic news story is most insulting? Play now!

… At last! Here is your bipartisanship, America. All the years of acrimony and fiery spittle, finally we have a grand issue around which both parties can rally: George W. Bush is dead! A pariah! Banished from the kingdom forevermore! Undeniably, it took the near-complete implosion of the nation to get us there, but hey, at least we can finally agree on something. Isn't that wonderful? Who wants pie? …

I’m sure TIME and Newsweek will still find a way to give Bush a good sendoff. It will be noted that Iraq is, apparently, a more hopeful place now than it’s been since before Gulf War I -- though the price was terrible and too high, and the future is fragile.

I suspect Bush will leave office with a better approval rating than he has now.

More’s the pity.
