Not, as some might suspect, that the IRS just spent $42 million to send out notices about the economic stimulus package.

No, today’s national embarrassment is President Bush’s veto of a bill to ban waterboarding and other forms of torture. The sooner this man is out of office the happier the world will be. He’s easily the worst president of my lifetime, and ranks right up there with the worst of all time, confirming fears I had before he was elected.

Why it took so many people so long to see this is beyond me. We’ll be trying to undo the mess he’s created for generations to come.
