OH! How The Once Mighty Have Fallen.

This warms the cockles of my black little heart beyond mere words.

Fall from power: Rumsfeld relegated to riding the bus

Former Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld, who managed to invade a country and serve four terms in Congress, tried to ride a bus last week but failed, according to a report Monday.

Rumsfeld "stood alone" at the 42 Metrobus bus stop just north of Dupont Circle last Thursday, when icy traffic made the roads a nightmare for drivers, Roll Call's [paid-restricted] Emily Heil and Elizabeth Brotherton reported Monday.

With his SmarTrip card in hand -- the DC metro's rechargeable fare card -- Rumsfeld "stood quietly" waiting for the bus.

“It was almost like the guy at the first day of work,” Heil and Brotherton's source remarked. “He was looking at the card, thinking, ‘How does this work?’”

The bus eventually came but "was too packed to pick up any more passengers," the reporters wrote.

Rumsfeld apparently gave up, walking away down the hill.

“He made it down the hill just fine,” the paper's source said. “He didn’t fall or anything.”

And so Donald Rumsfeld, once a favorite and cunning coddler of the Washington press corps, was obliged to take to his destination on foot.

Since his resignation as Defense Secretary in 2006, Rumsfeld has kept a relatively low profile, accepting a one-year stint as a fellow at the Hoover Institution, and pitching a memoir, though no book deal has been announced.

Yeah,the bus was too packed to let one war mongering piece of shit get on.
More like the bus driver took one look at Rummy and said, no fucking way!

Well, sometimes ya have to get to work with the rubber heels ya got, not the rubber wheels ya want.

A huge H/T to Raw Story fer making my fucking day.
