Happy Labor Day Weekend

The Guru will be travelling over the weekend and will only have limited internet access, so please treat this as an open thread.

I'm watching the always fantastic Real Time with Bill Maher, and Bill just made a very astute comparison. I'm sure most of you have seen the video of Miss Teen South Carolina answering a question about education in America, specifically why she thinks so few Americans can locate America on a world map. Watch that video one more time, and then watch the video of George W. Bush from August 2004 answering a question from a reporter on the role of tribal sovereignty in 21st century America. Try not to shudder.


You shuddered, didn't you?

Despite most people being on vacation this weekend, we should see some fireworks, headlined by a Larry Craig press conference tomorrow at which his resignation is expected to be announced. Also, there will no doubt be analysis of the political aftermath of John Warner's retirement announcement. Maybe a couple more Republicans will get indicted for something - who knows? Share your thoughts in the comments, and have a safe, fun Labor Day weekend.

Let the bloodbath begin between Tom "Bush Lap Dog" or "No Oversight" Davis and Jim "Fiscal Destruction" Gilmore.
