Did you see Bush yesterday when some reporter had the temerity to ask him why he didn't do anything about the assault weapons ban? GW was on the front porch of a country store and he whirled around to take the question and then he froze when the reporter spoke up. He then skulked away while one of his press agents jumped in front of the camera.
Can't the President answer one goddamned unscripted question? I swear, his face looked just like it did when he sat in the classroom, reading with children, while the country was under attack.
And Matt Lauer turned up the whore-meter to 10 yesterday and today when he interviewed Kitty Kelly about her new Bush book. He admitted he had been called by the White House and boy did he carry their water. Kelly had no chance to explain herself; instead, he hopped all over her, acting like a bad ass. Even so, I was left with the distinct impression that she was a lot smarter and tougher than him.
Everything she said, he jumped right to the response from either the White House or Saudi Arabia to discredit her. "What do you think the White House is going to say?" she asked. I liked when she said the Bush family image is that of a postcard a/la Donna Reed but in reality, there is plenty of the Sopranos mixed in there.
And if she is such a vile liar, why is the "Today" show having her on three mornings in a row?
