Repeat after me: cronyism, corruption, and incompetence

The perfect talking point about the Bush administration has to be accurate, cut across party and class lines, and stay simple. So here it is:

The Bush administration is corrupt and incompetent. The cronies who run the government are more interested in rewarding their friends and patting themselves on the back then getting a single thing done.

Here's my recipe for putting the last five years behind us:

1. Use these three words "cronyism, corruption, and incompetence" in every paragraph, t-shirt, sign, bumper sticker, and article about the Bush administration.
2. Fight like hell in the 2006 elections.
3. Get us out of Iraq.

Stir, rinse, repeat.
