TGIF Presidential Countdown: Just 361 days and finally our long national nightmare will be over

At noon on January 20, 2009, George W. Bush will leave office, and our long national nightmare will be over, or at least the country will be able to start waking up. And Kafkaesque nightmares like this might become a thing of the past. (Via)

FLORENCE, Ariz. — Thomas Warziniack was born in Minnesota and grew up in Georgia, but immigration authorities pronounced him an illegal immigrant from Russia.

Immigration and Customs Enforcement has held Warziniack for weeks in an Arizona detention facility with the aim of deporting him to a country he's never seen. His jailers shrugged off Warziniack's claims that he was an American citizen, even though they could have retrieved his Minnesota birth certificate in minutes and even though a Colorado court had concluded that he was a U.S. citizen a year before it shipped him to Arizona.
Less than a year to go, and counting . . .

NOTE: This is a regular Friday feature, counting down the days left until the day when George Bush leaves office, which can't come too soon. Is there a Bush outrage that has you counting the days until it can't happen anymore? Leave a note in the Comments.
