Memo to George Bush

I read the other day that you had spent 233 days -- or more than 40% of your presidency -- on vacation. Now, since your own policies -- especially in Iraq -- are rapidly unravelling, and with tragic effects, your dogged commitment to vacationing is troubling enough in itself. But I'm beginning to wonder if I shouldn't be more worried about how you spend the other 60% of your time. Mose Allison said it better than I could:

You're quoting figures, you're dropping names
You're telling stories, you're playing games
You always laugh when things ain't funny
You try to sound like you don't need money
If talk was criminal, you'd lead a life of crime
Cause your mind is on vacation and your mouth is working overtime

Though, come to think of it, this actually may explain why, to paraphrase Mark Crispin Miller, "your words seem to originate from somewhere other than your mind." Why is that, I wonder? Are you really as out of touch as you appear? But, who knows... maybe I'm just asking the wrong guy. Since you're sitting right there with him, Mr. Cheney, perhaps you could help us out here....
