The new accountability standard 

And Bush wondered how historians would remember him!
Someday the Bush administration will only be a miserable memory, but I'm sure his version of accountability will linger on, particularly in these tried-and-true phrases:
"No one could have anticipated..."
"I'm an idiot, not a crook"
"I don't recall..."
"The previous administration did it too."
and these newer phrases which will prove their utility in the future:
"He's suffered enough."
"Let bygones be bygones."
These set a standard which politicians can achieve and journalists endorse.
