Worst of The Worst?

Short post today because it is pResident's day and I'm going to play in Golden Gate Park.

A little op-ed on Dear Dumbass or "Bad Dream Preznit":

Mea culpa to Bush on Presidents Day :
"A year ago I criticized Hillary Clinton for saying 'this (Bush) administration will go down in history as one of the worst.'

'She's wrong,' I wrote. Then I rated these five presidents, in this order, as the worst: Andrew Jackson, James Buchanan, Ulysses Grant, Hoover and Richard Nixon. 'It's very unlikely Bush can crack that list,' I added.

I was wrong. This is my mea culpa. Not only has Bush cracked that list, but he is planted firmly at the top."

A little something on Gore or "Mr. Shoulda Been"

Gore announces climate change concerts:
"LOS ANGELES -Al Gore announced on Thursday a series of worldwide concerts to focus on the threat of climate change, with a powerhouse lineup from the Red Hot Chili Peppers to Snoop Dogg to Bon Jovi."

Speaking of Chili Peppers....

Chili peppers have ancient history:
"WASHINGTON - Who says food fads can't last? Thousands of years before the advent of Tex-Mex, ancient Americans were spicing up stew with red hot chili peppers."

No THIS is how you stop a hijacking:

Mauritanian Hijacker Gets in Hot Water:
"(AP) - TENERIFE, Canary Islands _ A fast-thinking pilot with passengers in cahoots fooled a hijacker by braking hard upon landing, then accelerating to knock the man down. When he fell, flight attendants threw boiling water in his face, and about 10 people pounced on him, Spanish officials said Friday"
