837 George W. Bush Events (Harper's )

837 Bush Events Harpers, January

 

Harper's published a list of 837 significant events of the

Bush Administration. It's the most exhaustive and complete

Bush administration chronology, I've seen including his many

misstatements, outright lies and screw-ups, as well as

other milestones. Here's the first page:

Selectmen in Brattleboro, Vermont, passed a measure

allowing town residents to vote to indict President George

W. Bush and Vice President Dick Cheney for war crimes.

My guess is 837 "events" is just a drop in the bucket. I think the George W. Bush Presidential Library, when it's built, would most appropriately be shaped like a lemon -- or, maybe, like Pinocchio.
