In Which Ironicus Phones It In

Silly us. Just a few short days ago we were thinking of folding this blog up and leaving the adults to watch over the tattered landscape post Bush. There is a good chance people who actually can tell the difference between their elbow and a hole in the ground will be in charge of overseeing America's final descent into irrelevancy.

Not that we're cynical or anything, we just figure when Bush leaves the White House and the new residents come in, they're going to want to put down new carpet, and when they pull up the old and see all the stuff George shoved under there in the last eight years it's going to make Sean Hannity think about joining the democratic party.

Seriously. It will be that bad. Really.

Want a preview? Check it:

Goldman Sachs is on course to pay its top City bankers multimillion-dollar bonuses - despite asking the U.S. government for an emergency bail-out. As Washington pours money into the bank, the cash will immediately be channelled to Goldman's already well-heeled employees.

Yeah, you read that right. The money that was so desperately needed to keep banks like Goldman Sachs alive because they were "too big to fail" is really to keep the people who got us into this mess firmly ensconced in the Hamptons.

If you need us, we'll be looking at the real estate section of the Belize Times.

Hey, don't give up the blog--no matter who is running things, there will always be maximus reasons for ironicussing.
