Please Don’t Touch Anything!

Seriously, is there anything anyone in the Bush Administration can touch that won’t shatter into a million pieces of disastrous failure?

A week ago, we heard this:
United Nations - U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice said at a farewell U.N. appearance Monday that Israel and the Palestinians have moved much further along the path to peace since President George W. Bush brought their leaders together a year ago - though they won't clinch an agreement by the end of the year.
Today, this:
GAZA CITY, Gaza Strip — Israeli warplanes retaliating for rocket fire from the Gaza Strip pounded dozens of security compounds across the Hamas-ruled territory in unprecedented waves of airstrikes Saturday, killing more than 200 people and wounding nearly 400 in the single bloodiest day of fighting in years.
Like the parent who leaves her child in the car while she runs into a china shop, lest he inadvertently knock over an entire shelf of fine porcelain, can we just sequester the entire Bush Administration for a month until the responsible, competent, adults are ready to take over?
