That's a nice climate change treaty you got there. Be a shame if somethin' happened to it.

Look, I don't like Bill Clinton either. And not for the usual reason. NAFTA, welfare reform, the stagnant wages that marked most of his presidency, his penchant for rushing to the center to govern--I think that's the taint that marked his legacy.

But look, for George Bush to pretend that he might sign the Kyoto Accords is just ludicrous. He's not, and everyone knows it. Dogs know it. Cats know it.

For him to pretend he was going to sign (really he was--he's been busy) but since the Climate Convention is going to have Bill Clinton speak--then no way Jose!

Bill Clinton? Give his well-known views on the role of industry in climate change! To the very people who are trying to implement a treaty to limit such change? Zounds!

I'll just say it. George Bush is psychotically obsessed with the public's perception of his governing. Any threat to that perception will not be tolerated.

It's a pity he doesn't take that passion for perfection to actual governing.
