You know what? Fuck it.

It'll all go south starting tomorrow, but for today, let's just enjoy the moment.

Those of you curious to recall how I rang in Inauguration Day 2004, here you go: Don't Say The Two Balls Part. I was, I'm ashamed to admit, overly optimistic, leaving out the two big things Dubya fucked up during his second term that he had failed to fuck up in his first. Disaster relief, and the economy. The first because I didn't think his incompetence had sunk that deeply into the government structure, and the latter because at the time, I hadn't started learning about what Atrios dubbed "Big Shitpile" - the accumulated mass of bundled and resold mortgages that weren't worth the paper most of them weren't even written on.

Since then, I have strived to underestimate a lot less, because unlike the now-former Shitkicker-In-Chief, I learn from my mistakes.
