I Give George W. Bush Credit For Two Things

The first is that immediately after 9-11 he did tamp down on the anti-Muslim sentiment in the population that could have exploded instantly. Of course he followed that up with... well, you know. But there was a moment.

The second is that once it became clear everything was done wrecked and ruined, he said "fuck it, I'm out," and went away.

Neither of these things provides any level of redemption. Nor the dog paintings.
