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.

Subtle Perception Management 

Whenever the media refers to the Kennedy digs, it invariably calls it the "Kennedy Compound." Likewise, during the last election, Kerry's digs were called the "Kerry Compound." So why is it that Bush's Crawford retreat is called a "ranch." Isn't it too a "compound?" This appears to me to be subtle phrasing to promote a more populist image for Bush. Even though he's a product of prep schools and Ivy League Colleges, the cowboy image has been thrust upon us by a compliant media. So from now on, please called it the "Crawford Compound."
