In Which, Like Speaker Hastert, I Take Responsibility

The buck stops here.

I take responsibility for the Exxon Valdez oil spill.

I take responsibility for Rush's OxyContin addiction.

I take responsbility for Iran-Contra, Jack Abramoff and Mark Foley.

I take responsibility for the Hindenburg, the Titanic and Three Mile Island.

I take responsbility for 9/11, Katrina and the deficit.

I take responsibility for no WMDs, no mission accomplished and no curiosity.

I take responsibility for Dick Cheney, Don Rumsfeld and Harriet Miers.

I take responsbility for Terri Schaivo, James Dobson and Nancy Grace.

I take responsibility for Enron, WorldCom and Mel Gibson.

I take responsibility for Abu Ghraib, Natalee Holloway and Ryan Seacrest.

Whew. That feels better.

Tennis, anyone?
