A Half-Witticism.

This is not a love song

From anyone else, it would be taken as wit, but with George, it's only taken half-way.

According to scuttlebutt that emerged in the British press in July 2002, President Bush, Britain's Prime Minister Tony Blair, and France's President Jacques Chirac were discussing economics and, in particular, the decline of the French economy. "The problem with the French," Bush afterwards confided in Blair, "is that they don't have a word for entrepreneur."

The discussion seems to center around whether or not Bush is really as stupid as one is led to think by the evidence of his actions. Respondents are of the opinion - IMHO, a wishful opinion - that one cannot be stupid and yet become president.

But that was before Diebold and the neo-con/theocon alliance.

In fact, not only is it clear that one COULD be that stupid, it's getting clear that you have to at least pretend to be that dumb to get the nomination.

Remember when the Republican Party was filled with scary smart people? Maybe not all that ethical, certainly not of the common touch - but SCARY smart.

Those folks are running as Democrats now.
