It was just a matter of time.

The 152-year-old Texas Governor's mansion, where Bush once rested his head, sustained serious damage as a four-alarm fire set the mansion ablaze at 2 AM CST this morning.

100 firefighters fought the blaze -- no one was home at the time of the fire.

UPDATE: Fire investigators say the blaze was intentionally set, but there's no indication it was intended as a direct threat to Texas Gov. Rick Perry.

FYI - John Galt is the boring, naive and pretentious ostensible hero of an otherwise likeable if lightweight melodramatic soap opera in novel form by Ayn Rand, who went on to found the RAND Corporation. If you're looking for something that doesn't strain the brain on your next plane trip, I recommend it almost unreservedly - just skip over the 75 page rant about selfishness near the end of the book; it repeats itself ad nauseum. But stay away, for Allah's sake, from The Fountainhead - that shiz is UNreadable.

PS - the part about the RAND Corp was a joke. Lighten up

How is Bush responsible for this fire? What idiot wrote that headline? I want entertainment news, not someone's political opinion. TMZ should get a new writer - let the one who wrote that go!

TMZ folks are morons, and so are other liberals/dems. The reason gas prices are so high has nothing to do with Bush, but the democrats and liberal enviromentalist who will not let us drill here or have too many Government regulations to build refineries and in making the fuel. The only reason the terrorist have not hit us again is because we are fighting them there. And raising taxes like the dems and Obama are going to do will not help us working people. And neither party will do anything about the illegals or the securing the border. And we with brains all know that if Obama gets into office an makes things worse he and others will just blame Bush for the next 8 years or more just to cover their own asses. And the dems run the show pretty much now and gas keeps going up as well as unemployment , illegal immigration, and even thye could stop the war by cutting funding but don't!!! Wkae up people raising taxes, more laws, bigger governmnet does not make this country better or you have more success. And if you have a job, food, computer, car, etc...life must be pretty damn good compared to other countries. If you want a socialist country vote Obama in 08.

waa waa cry babies    

how did bush ruin the country? Is he the one who has halted drilling oil reserves in this country? Think that happened with the whiny enviro whackos. Take care of drilling for oil here and develop affordable alternative fueling for cars, and a large part of our problems would be solved.

Also, would you like the Taliban and Al Queda to come over and attach other parts of our country? They'd like nothing better than to finish what they started on 9/11/01......maybe they can come find you since you think it unnecessary to defend ourselves against those who wish our country ill will.....or maybe you'd like to join them? Delta is ready when you are.....

Something smells fishy...    

Politicial discussions are a waste of time, just like discussing the Bible. Because people will interpret events and political strategies however they want.

That bunch of Texas water drinking idiots known as the House of Yaweh sez the End of the World is going to be on Thursday. Those non tax paying religious idiots are whom we should be truly worried about.
