People often ask me if I miss President Bush--the implication being that he created so much material for satirists that we could coast. His war with the English language was amusing, but his tenure was so awash in tragedy--both circumstances beyond his control and his often disastrous responses to them. I always welcome fresh blood. Especially arrogant fresh blood. It's also preferable to kick people when they're up.
