Heckuva Job, Bushie!

You know how when you break a glass in the kitchen, you still find little shards of glass months later, usually by stepping on them in the middle of the night? The aftermath of the Bush years will be much the same. I expect a lot more news like this in the coming months and years:

Following the example of his father putting a guy with a real talent for sex harassment in charge of the EEOC, George W. Bush put his own stamp on how the EEOC should operate:

The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission...has itself willfully violated the Fair Labor Standards Act on a nationwide basis with its own employees, an arbitrator has ruled.

This is what you get when you let Cons rule. You might as well put toddlers in charge of the china cabinet: they do as good a job keeping that whole as Cons do running the government.

Now, that's an appropriate metaphor. Land mines come to mind, also, but I'm hoping it's not that serious.
