It just keeps getting better

George Bush gleefully urinates on the corpse of the conservatism he stabbed in the back:

Zalmay Khalilzad, who was announced this week as leaving as U.S. ambassador to Iraq, is the leading prospect to replace John Bolton as envoy to the United Nations.

President Bush was reported by aides as looking for someone who approximates Bolton’s combination of toughness and diplomatic skill and has tentatively decided on Khalilzad. A native of Afghanistan, he has served in government posts dating back to 1985 and is the highest-ranking Muslim in the Bush administration.

I think I’m really going to enjoy Bush the Younger’s lame duck period. It’s petty, of course, but watching conservatives writhe in agony at the actions of the man they voted into office under the “lesser of two evils” mantra is genuinely amusing.

Even the Three Monkeys at NRO can’t summon up the energy to think up excuses for him any more. Get ready for Hillary, folks. And I agree with Dick Morris on the name game, I fully expect her to go by Rodham Clinton during her campaign, then drop the Clinton altogether once she gets elected.

I, for one, welcome our new reptilesbian overlordess.
