Dull. Repetitive. Obvious. Maybe worth listening to if you happen to be in solitary confinement and are allowed the choice between this or no human contact for several months. Anything less than 60 days and it'd probably be more psychologically beneficial to contemplate the short and long term consequences of the George W. Bush presidency.
