I couldn't believe it when I heard that George W started his vacation this week. Vacation??! Nonono, it doesn't work that way. Every job I've ever had, the first rule of vacations is that everything on the job has to be squared away first; no outstanding issues, certainly no emergencies ... then and only then could I go on vacation. Being president must be some sweet gig if you can fuck up everything you touch, leave a world in flames, and still get away from it all for a few weeks. It doesn't make sense: at a time like this, you'd think the Bush administration would want to have everyone who could be of any use at all to be on the jo---ooookay. Now I get it. "Vacation" -- heh.
