I'm sad that Tammye Faye Bakker/Messner has died although I'm grateful for the news for two reasons:
1) There is a different, non-Iraq story that isn't about dog fighting and intense cruelty to animals
2) Tammye Faye's death from colon cancer comes on the same day that Bush had some polyps removed from HIS colon so perhaps the two will end up linked photographically for a new cycle or two and I'm sure that annoys the White House.

In my mind, Bush is almost gone. But of course he still has heaps of time, plenty of opportunity to do enormous, terrible things.

If I was a White House advisor looking to shore up the Bush legacy, I might suggest that the president steal an idea from Bob Barker and push for a national program to spay and neuter pets.

Of course the way this would play out would be that the administration would outsource the job to private contractors who would end up staging public drownings of baby animals.
