Well, the “me” Administration is almost over, and good riddance, as far as I’m concerned. The Bush Administration was simply 8 years of people thinking of nothing but themselves. No wonder we were unable to get together and solve any of the many serious problems facing our nation. Oh sure, some people did do some positive things in the Bush Administration — like jogging — but always for the wrong reasons, for their own selfish, personal benefit. Well, I believe the next administration is gonna have to be different. I think that people are going to stop thinking about themselves, and start thinking about him, Al Franken.

That, along with Roland Burris trying to storm the gates in order to chisel in another line on the ol’ resume? Tuesday’s going to be FUN.
