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.

A New Jeff Gannon? 

Lobbing loaded, softball questions to GWB during press conferences was his stock-in-trade along with being a gay, male prostitute. Someone had to fill his shoes, so to speak. Has a new shill been planted in the White House Press Corp?

Here's Gannon's question that made him stand out:

Thank you. Senate Democratic leaders have painted a very bleak picture of the U.S. economy. [Senate Minority Leader] Harry Reid [D-NV] was talking about soup lines. And [Senator] Hillary Clinton [D-NY] was talking about the economy being on the verge of collapse. Yet in the same breath they say that Social Security is rock solid and there's no crisis there. How are you going to work -- you've said you are going to reach out to these people -- how are you going to work with people who seem to have divorced themselves from reality?

Here's the loaded, softball question from today:

What is your reaction to the Moveon.org that mocked General Petraeus as General Betrayus? Said that he cooked the books on Iraq. Secondly, would you like to see democrats, including presidential candidates, repudiate that ad?

Of course, Bush used the opportunity to denigrate the entire democratic party and its members as not supporting the military. What a bunch of whining crybabies the GOP has become. Petraeus is condemned by his own record of rosy projections, political calculation and abject failure. Just how many Iraqi forces are standing up so we can stand down thanks to the training program he was responsible for?

His presentation to Congress should be run through one of those prgrams that professors and teachers use to ferret out plagiarism. It sure would be interesting to see the results.
