Can you spot the sore loser? Is they all picking on poor little Donny?

His resignation speech, by the way, was something else.
The great respect that I have for your leadership, Mr. President, in this little understood, unfamiliar war, the first war of the 21st century -- it is not well-known, it was not well-understood, it is complex for people to comprehend. And I know, with certainty, that over time the contributions you've made will be recorded by history.
Yes folks, it's not Donny or Dubya's fault. It's just that the American people and the rest of the world are too stupid to understand how splendidly things are going in Iraq. When, on February 7th 2003, he said the war "could last six days, six weeks. I doubt six months," we foolishly believed that he was an ignorant, dogmatic ideologue who didn't understand the first thing about the actual consequences of the actions he was advocating. Now that this prediction can be tested against recorded history however...

Also, I can't imagine you don't already read Justin's outstanding Friday Thing contributions with a quasi-religious devotion but just in case you don't, you really should. This week, the fallout from the mid terms come under the excoriating spotlight.
