Can't Seem to Get My Mind off of You
In contrast to Weird "The Hardest Working Man in Showbiz" Al (see post below), no one, and I mean no one, enjoys a good vacation like our president. While we were being reminded last week by Condi Rice's testimony that the president spent the month of August 2001 on his ranch reading old Archie comics and not his PDB, Bush was not in the White House monitoring the latest trouble in Iraq but was back at the ranch in Crawford were he "spent the morning watching national security adviser Condoleezza Rice's televised testimony to the commission investigating the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks, then toured his ranch with Wayne LaPierre Jr., chief executive of the National Rifle Association, and other leaders of hunting groups and gave an interview to Ladies' Home Journal," according to The Washington Post.

So just how many vacations has W taken? The Post goes on to report that: "This is Bush's 33rd visit to his ranch since becoming president. He has spent all or part of 233 days on his Texas ranch since taking office, according to a tally by CBS News. Adding his 78 visits to Camp David and his five visits to Kennebunkport, Maine, Bush has spent all or part of 500 days in office at one of his three retreats, or more than 40 percent of his presidency."
