First off – congratulations to Swarthmore College on selecting its 14th president – and to Rebecca S. Chopp on being that person. She is currently the President of Colgate … and a scholar of religion and American Culture. Nice to have a woman there – and she sounds like a great choice.
Second – I heard a story on NPR while I was out and about shopping today … the kind of brief snippet that sets me to gnashing my teeth and/or wanting to scream. Apparently our ex-prez – Dubya, I mean – took a little trip to a Dallas hardware store this weekend. Joking in his back-slapping, towel-snapping way, he told the good folks at the store that he was looking for a job.
Yup – looking for a job. Hah, hah, hah.
This from the tin-eared, uncurious and morally bankrupt doofus who presided over the loss of million upon million of jobs. I do wish that he had to look for work. Any way we can cut off his pension and put it toward the deficit? Hah, hah, hah.
