Frankly, any day that George W. Bush is our president is a beastly day, but some days are still a little beastlier than others. As we know from Revelation 13:18,
Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is six hundred threescore and six.Naturally, therefore, I felt a small frisson when earlier today the countdown clock in my blog's sidebar presented the message that only 666 days remain in the Bush administration.
Does that mean it's all downhill from here? Come to think of it, “downhill” is practically a one-word characterization of the entire Bush administration to date. Why should it change now?
