"With all the talk about a bond bubble and how there is no where to go but down for bonds over the foreseeable future, does this kind of allocation still make sense?"

What is the purpose of your allocation? Is it to follow the whims of the various markets? Or is it to give you some balance to weather whatever storms come along? If the former, then by all means get out of bonds if you think they are about to tank. If the latter, then sit back and enjoy a cool one as you watch the Super Bowl in eight days.
