The more that I hear from this...guy, the more I feel like seizures are going to happen to me. The fact that he could speak and smile and sound so f-ing condescending all at the same time leaves my blood cold.

I think it's because he's heavily medicated. Or drunk. Or both.

I think that my 8yo who had a lemonade stand and raised 72 dollars for the Hurricane victims has so much more heart than our fearless leader.

What a nice boy you have! And $72 is a lot of lemonade. Good for him.

Can our expectations of this president go any lower?

I saw a bit at the top of Tweety & Fineman Explain It All, and Howard was making the opposite point you and I made earlier--that Bush would be personally hurt by this because unlike 9/11 he didn't have the spectre of foreign attack to rally public opinion around him and the general dissatisfaction with him would now be coming out.

That's projection Howard, I sez, in the first instance and don't try to convince us you had critical faculties which you suspended on 9/11, because we remember what you were up to before that. And in the second, the typical Up is Down analysis you get from those two; Bush's numbers were already about as low as they could go.

Then Tweety asks how come there wasn't some aide tell him he needed to get off the stick? Kee-rist. And within thirty seconds that aide had a name: Andy Card. "Andy Card's a smart guy. Why didn't he call in the helicopters?"

Got that? The job of this president Matthews admires so much is to wear cowboy boots while Andy Card does the thinking.

Good to see they reverted to true form later. Bush had a rough day; I'm sure he appreciated a good fluffing at the end of it.

  • "[O]ur time, our energy, should be spent in educating, agitating, organizing our fellow citizens in the workplace, in the neighborhood, in the schools. Our objective should be to build, painstakingly, patiently but energetically, a movement that, when it reaches a certain critical mass, would shake whoever is in the White House, in Congress, into changing national policy on matters of war and social justice."

    Mr. President, we love America, not because of all of us have seen the beauty all the time.

    But we believed if we kept on working, if we kept on marching, if we kept on voting, if we kept on believing, we would make America beautiful for everybody.
