IT'S ENOUGH TO MAKE ME MISS AL GORE
Alexander Cockburn spins a great POV of the ever irrelevant Bush administration in Counterpunch - Bring Out the Booster Chair for Jr. THE INcredible Shrinking President. With fond memories of Tricky Dick thrown in for comparision, Cockburn takes sure aim at the born-again imbecil who currently call the White House his pad. From the piece:
Our spaniel press makes herculean efforts to pass over the fact in silence, but the fact is that George W. Bush is the laughing stock of the world, by dint of the obvious fact that his maximum level of competence was that of greeter at the ball park in Arlington, which as David Vest recently remarked on this site, is the only real job he ever had before he met Ken Lay.
