Duck Season

Just heard on the national news segment of my local WCBS radio affiliate :
"The end of the President's immigration plan means that George W. Bush is beyond being a lame duck president. He's a dead duck president."
And Cheney didn't even have to shoot him in the face. In any case, about freaking time. No doubt Lame Ducky will find loads of productive things to do with his time in between now and when we're rid of him.1 Still, President Wrecks has his little proxies on the Supreme Court, who will have continued opportunities to make life a little harder for women, black people, and anyone else the wingnuts have been dying to kick to the curb all these years. Unfortunately, nothing we can do about that save pray for the continued good health of Justices Stevens, Ginsburg, Breyer, and Souter, and take comfort in the fact that Idiot Boy's major domestic initiatives (the destruction of Social Security and the creation of a semi-permanent slave class via a "Guest Worker" program) are miserable failures just like him.

1570 Days.

Update: NYU Professor Paul Light sum up The Week that Was for George Dumbya Bush for McClatchy:

"It's the incredible shrinking presidency. He's lost battles in the courts. He's lost battles in Iraq. He's lost battles on Capitol Hill. His bank account is empty and there's nowhere to go for more. I think his presidency is essentially over."

Light proposed a headline to sum up the week:

"The president loses his legacy."
