Bush speechwriter quits

And incredibly, he's not leaving to spend more time with his family. (Why do people always say that? What makes them think their family wants to spend more time with THEM?) No, Michael J. Gerson has a much better reason than that. He's leaving because, he says, "It seemed like a good time. Things are back on track a little. Some of the things I care about are on a good trajectory."

Back on track? On a good trajectory? What is Gerson talking about? Zarqawi's murder? Rove's narrow escape from justice? His own salvaged career, now that he's jumped the sinking ship?

Rumor has it that Gerson wrote one final, cryptic speech for Bush and left it on his desk, next to his resignation. The speech reads, simply:

"Fooled you twice. Shame on you!"

Unfortunately, we were just joking about the final speech. But yeah, imagine Bush actually reading it...think the temperature in hell would plummet to 32 degrees?
