The Bush presidency winds down

The last days of Empire: Having apparently decided to not bother with any sort of legacy, the people who've been running America for the last eight years are now clearly just goofing off - six months of bringing in games and surfing the net for cheap flights.

So it is that Condoleezza Rice is making time in her schedule to meet up with Kiss. In Sweden:

"It was really fun to meet Kiss and Gene Simmons," she told reporters, noting that they seemed well-informed about current events. The band had asked if she could stop by after she finished dinner with the Swedish foreign minister and Rice readily agreed, she said.

After all, she had some spare time as her planned date with Sammy Hagar had fallen through.
