Shorter 2008 Presidential Campaign

I been thinking about the presidential campaign and I think I can sum it like so:

Bush and the Republicans screwed up the country so badly that the we elected a black man named Barack Hussein Obama.

Good Gracious

Brother Atrios points us to this:

The Bush team had worked assiduously to make the transition smooth for the incoming President Obama and stayed out of the way as he used the postelection period to take leadership of the economy even before being sworn in. And now, as far as some of them were concerned, the new president had used his inaugural lectern to give the back of the hand to a predecessor who had been nothing but gracious to him.

Peronally, I thought Obama was a little too gracious. If it were me, I would have had Bush and Cheney arrested right after the oath but before the address.
