These guys could fuck up a baked potato*
The Bush administration as seen from a distance
I am naive.
I never thought that an administration that sat on its hands prior to 9/11, then ran the President around the country like Billy in Family Circus on 9/11 while the country wanted to know what the hell was going on, flushed away all of the sympathy of the world by invading a country over weapons of mass destruction that no longer existed, got us stuck in a Middle Eastern quagmire resulting in almost 2300 American dead, botched the response to Hurricane Katrina, and totally screwed up the Medicare prescription drug benefit... how these adults could manage to top all of that by their failure to come clean and explain how and why the Vice President managed to shoot a 78-year-old man in the face.
I think we have all misunderestimated them.
