He's Out of his Mind, Please Leave a Message

Some interesting figures from Daily KOS:

  • 49 - the number of vacations that Bush has taken since he was inaugurated in 2001
  • 5 - the number of weeks that Bush will spend on vacation, starting yesterday. It is the longest presidential vacation in at least 36 years.
  • 319 - August 3, 2005 was the 319th day Bush has spent on vacation since his 2001 inauguration.
  • 20% - the fraction of Bush's presidency that he has spent on vacation

  • 23 - the number of U.S. troops killed in Iraq in August alone. That's right. In three days, 23 U.S. soldiers have been killed in Iraq.
  • 1,822 - the total number of U.S. troops who have died in Bush's illegal Iraq war, as of August 3, 2005. Fourteen soldiers were killed today.

If America were a corporation, and we the people were the stockholders, and Bush was our CEO, wouldn't we have fired this unrepentant fuckup by now?
