Great humor from The Daily Show

Y'know, after a lot of therapy (not really -- but maybe I should have!), I'd stopped thinking about the soon-to-be-departed-worst-President-ever.  He's going to disappear into well-deserved obscurity on Tuesday (as Palin already has) and what's the point of sitting around hating him for doing so much damage to this country -- and the world?  The damage is done, everyone knows he's responsible (with a big assist from Cheney and a handful of other cronies) and thank goodness there will FINALLY be a capable, smart, good man in charge who will start to heal the damage that's been done.
But after watching clips from Bush's press conference on The Daily Show on Tuesday, I got furious all over:  He's not just trying to spin history -- he's totally off-his-rocker, delusional!  Here are some quotes:
"[Iraq] not having weapons of mass destruction was a significant disappointment...Abu Ghraib was a huge disappointment...I've thought long and hard about Katrina.  Could I have done something differently, like land Air Force One in New Orleans or Baton Rouge?  The problem with that is that law enforcement would have been pulled away from the mission and then your questions, I suspect, would have been, 'How can you possibly have flown Air Force One into Baton Rouge and police officers who were needed to expedite traffic out of New Orleans were taken off the task to look after you.'" 
Jon Stewart's comment: "You have no idea why people are mad at you about Katrina, do you?  You thought it was the plane landing/flyover?  You're like the guy whose wife comes home and catches you banging her sister and you think she's mad at your for not telling her you were coming home early."  LOL!
You gotta watch this starting at 9:10, where the press conference becomes "just plain weird".
Also, while you're at it, the first five minutes of Monday's Daily Show is a hoot, contrasting Obama's and Bush's vastly contrasting styles at press conferences:
