To paraphrase and reapply Nixon's famous exit line, you're going to have
Bush to kick around for four more years!  So I understand that you need to
take your political pleasures where you can find them.  In four years, after
Hillary has taken office, it will be our turn :-(

On 28 December I wrote:

"So far the United States has donated or pledged, mostly through relief 
agencies,
$35 million in aid for those areas devastated by the tsunami."

I then went on to contrast this with the amount to be spent on Bush's
inauguration.

In fairness, I should note, as I'm sure everyone is aware, that today the US
has
pledged $350 million in relief funds. Whether the inauguration committee
will
feel it has to keep up is another matter. 

(Sorry, Lawrence, I couldn't resist.)
