Rightwing Blowhards Discover Their Bush is Idiot -- Is Late Really Better Than Never?

What took them so long?

Oh, right. They're stupid.

Pundits Renounce The President

For 10 minutes, the talk show host grilled his guests about whether "George Bush's mental weakness is damaging America's credibility at home and abroad." For 10 minutes, the caption across the bottom of the television screen read, "IS BUSH AN 'IDIOT'?"

But the host was no liberal media elitist. It was Joe Scarborough, a former Republican congressman turned MSNBC political pundit. And his answer to the captioned question was hardly "no."

While other presidents have been called stupid, Scarborough said: "I think George Bush is in a league by himself. I don't think he has the intellectual depth as these other people."
Well, frickin' duh, Joey.

Maybe you guys should stop PolPot-ishly deriding smart people, for a change?

This is your boy:

"I think -- tide turning -- see, as I remember -- I was raised in the desert, but tides kind of -- it's easy to see a tide turn -- did I say those words?" -- George W. Bush, asked if the tide was turning in Iraq, Washington, D.C., June 14, 2006

What else can one say to Tony Blair other than, "NO DUH!"

Well...idiot is one of his more benign flaws. Sociopathic is more problematic.

An idiot WITH depraved indifference...there's a bad combination.

Lew Scannon said...

Yes, Lily, he is a sociopath with depraved indifference, who surrounds himself with people who are more sociopathic and depravedly indifferent than he. That's why he is truly dangerous.
