Bush doesn't know what Rumsfeld does?
"Secretary of State Rumsfeld?"
Mmmm-hmmm. (Okay, okay, slip of the tongue. Whatever. What a
stumble-mouthed dunderfuck anyway.)
Various things are clear after this news conference, and should be
abundantly clear to anyone who watched it w/o rose-coloured glasses
firmly in place.
First, this is a president totally ruled by fear and self-reinforcing
delusion and who is surrounded by advisors who do nothing but play into
and manipulate his fear - a president who cannot make sense of the
world around him as it really is. His ability to make decisions on the
basis of reason rather than irrational emotional response is
questionable, and he becomes agitated whenever his delusional
world-view is questioned. His grip on reality is so tenuous as to make
him a danger to every living American.
Second, per the "war footing" arguments, we should be concerned at
least somewhat about the October Surprise theories that have been
offered. Though indeed the Diebold angle makes things somewhat more
Finally, this is a president that is completely out of touch with the
American people. From the scheduling to the repetitive and
uninteresting and uninformative jingoistic rhetoric, this was an entire
no-op except to piss off millions at having to listen to this
ill-conceived "save the re-election" dreck rather than suck their usual
Tuesday-night glass titty prime time programming.
