Or maybe I should have gone with the "you killed my father, prepare to die" scene
I thought about writing-up a lengthy blog post about the twilight of the Bush administration chock full of Hunter S. Thompson-inspired venom or at least some imitative Matt Taibbi-esque vitriol. Then I realized that this clip from The Princess Bride sums up my thoughts and feelings rather nicely.
May George W. Bush, Dick Cheney and all the rest be blessed with longevity. May they live for decades and even centuries to come like that creaky, ancient knight at the end of Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade. I hope they all survive long enough to fully realize every last one of their mistakes and that history will neither redeem their actions, nor justify their means. Or, to paraphrase Westley, "It means [they're left] in anguish, wallowing in freakish misery forever. "

Looking ahead, good luck, America. You're gonna need it.
