Mark your calendar: today, July 18, 2005, marks the beginning of the end of the Bush administration.

Here are the 13 words Bush said today that sealed his fate:

"If someone committed a crime, they will no longer work in my administration."

Unfortunately that's not what Bush has been saying for the past two years, particularly on June 20, 2004:

"Q. Do you stand by your pledge to fire anyone found to have [leaked Valerie Plame's name]?

THE PRESIDENT: Yes."

Everyone in the blogosphere knows this. Everyone in the press corps knows this.

Bush just flip-flopped. You know how it goes: "First I was against leaking, before I was for it."

But this was no ordinary flip-flop, because he did it right in the face of the entire press corps, which was hanging on every word.

This flip-flop is in a class all by itself. I hereby christen it:
FLIPFLOPALOOOOOZA!

Bush's credibility was in deep doo-doo long before FLIPFLOPALOOOOOZA.

According to a brand new ABC poll, only 25% think the White House is "fully cooperating" with the investigation, down from 47% when the investigation began in September 2003.

In a poll taken last week, only 41% thought Bush was "honest." When they take the next poll, Bush's "honesty" rating will be down around 1% - and only if they include people in permanent vegetative states (and those who think people in PVS can communicate).

I can't wait for the TV talk shows tonight - especially for Sean Hannity, Bill O'Reilly, and Joe Scarborough. They can try to spin themselves all the way through to China, but the American people will just laugh at their stupidity.

And speaking of laughs - don't think Jon Stewart wasn't watching :)

This could be the best night on TV since Richard Nixon's resignation in
1974 - and that was before 24-hour cable!!!
