Random commentary and senseless acts of blogging.
The first Republican president once said, "While the people retain their virtue and their vigilance, no administration by any extreme of wickedness or folly can seriously injure the government in the short space of four years." If Mr. Lincoln could see what's happened in these last three-and-a-half years, he might hedge a little on that statement.

One really startling moment from Bush's press conference was when he was asked why he needed Cheney's support to speak to the 9/11 commission. It was an obvious question, one he should have been prepared for, and he had nothing at all except an obvious duck. It was the worst answer I can recall hearing from any president in a long time.
It's perfectly clear his own people have nothing but contempt for him. Speaking toi the comission isn't that hard, as others have shown. There's a 10 minute limit for each questioner, and it's always easy to pad out an answer to about 3 minutes. So each questioner gets only about 4 questions, they have no real way to force answers to those, and most are friendly. As easy as it is, his own people don't think he's capable to handle it. If the man's own aides don't respect him, why should we?
