A tribute to Condoleeza Rice and George W. Bush who, despite voluminious evidence to the contrary, said, "I don't think anybody could have predicted that these people would take an airplane and slam it into the World Trade Center, take another one and slam it into the Pentagon, that they would try to use an airplane as a missile," adding that "even in retrospect" there was "nothing" to suggest that" and "I don't think anyone anticipated the breach of the levees," respectively.

George Will Must Be Smoking Crack 

On This Week, George Will was talking about George Bush and his instincts. Will evidently thinks that Bush’s approach to Social Security is a failure of Bush’s much touted instincts. In fact the whole Round Table segment was a Bush lovefest. Terry Moran should change his name to Jeff Gannon for the rhetorical Lewinsky he gave George Bush. “This President,” kept being repeated. With the falling poll numbers, it’s back to basics. Bush is bold. His leadership is bold. He fights for what he believes. He relishes the “fight.” And, of course, he has great instincts.

But anyway, George Will must be smoking crack. We know he’s a sell-out like so many others of the pundit elite, but I could hardly believe my ears when he uttered this nonsense.

He said, “George Bush’s normally impeccable instincts...”

Like when his instincts told him that the California Energy Crisis was the result of market forces and not a planned rape of California ratepayers.

Like when his instincts told him that the “intelligence” he was getting was not a “slam dunk.”

Like when his instincts told him that Saddam Hussein had stockpiles upon stockpiles of WMD’s.

Like when his instincts told him to ignore all the warnings about an upcoming attack on the United States.

Like when his instincts told him that 9/11 would be a good day to be out of D.C. and even better day to read “My Pet Goat” while America was under attack.

Like when his instincts told him that Paul Bremer would not completely FUBAR the Iraq Provisional Authority.

Like when his instincts told him that the information provided by Ahmed Chalabi was a bit less than accurate.

Like when his instincts told him he could commit a classic case of insider trading with the sale of his Harkin Oil stock and suffer no legal consequences.

Like when his instincts told him he could just not show up during his commitment to the Texas Air National Guard and suffer no legal or political consequences.

Like his instincts told him that a Missile Defense Shield would not be a huge monetary sinkhole.

Like his instincts told him that Jeff Gannon/Jim Guckert should be called upon to ask a question at a press conference because he was a "real" journalist and not a gay, male hooker who visited the White House 200 times, many of which when there was no press briefing.

Like his instincts told him who within his administration committed treason by blowing the cover of a deep-cover CIA operative in an act of political revenge.

Like his instincts told him that "over-zealous" staffers were violating the First Amendment rights of American citizens in order to stifle protected speech by eliminating dissent.

Well, you get my point.

And as for Laura Bush and her standup comedy routine. Ha Ha, America, your President is a dolt who does not read, bought a ranch for appearances before the election, goes to bed early forcing Laura to find sexual release at Chippendales. And by the way, went to Andover Prep School, and Yale and Harvard, yet can barely communicate in his native tongue. Ha Ha. I don’t really see the humor.
