Talkin' trash to the garbage around me.

Legacies

If I weren't terrified that this man who was huddled with the anointed Ivy League guardians of history was actually, you know, president of the United States, I'd find George W. Bush's obsession with his historical legacy kind of pathetic. There's something galling to me about elites who claim the role of "agent of history," that the history of the world had more to do with the self-important tantrums of rich brats than with the everyday actions of normal people in extraordinary times.

W. is more interested in composing the dipshit message he's going to write in your senior yearbook ("Hey weeble-wobble, hope that actually caring about people thing works out for you! Heh heh heh. W.") than in actually graduating.
