what we have been waiting for


From the NYT.com

"The Bushes Depart | 12:56 p.m. The helicopter steps are folded up. The blade begins to rotate. The Obamas and Bidens are standing still, holding each other’s hands, as they watch the helicopter rev up. We now have lift-off; the Bushes have left the Capitol at 12:55 — almost half an hour ahead of time. The Obamas wave.

The helicopter is swinging out over the Mall first instead of heading directly to Andrews. Surely the Bushes can’t hear the crowd below, but the chant is one that sports fans jeer to the opposing team: 'Na Na Na Na/Na Na Na Na/Hey Hey Hey/Good-bye.'"

... and then that bigot Rick Warren gets critiqued. The comments are priceless.

I liked how Rick Warren asked that God forgive us if we "don't give respect and justice to all our brothers and sisters" or some such version of those words. Hypocrite.

Rick Warren (puking now)!!! But to see the Bushies fly AWAY was awesome. "So Long, farewel, adieu, etc." Happy dancing here.

Is that picture for real? I LOVE IT!
Rick Warren was later caught tea bagging Dick Cheney. I knew it.
