President Bush Admits to Hearing Voices

This is simply too rich to just let go. There is absolutely no possible way this man has an Ivy League education. The "decider" in chief is caught on tape saying, "I listen to all the voices." Too bad for the rest of us he never pays close attention to them! Crooks and Liars has the video.

If he did pay attention, he might have heard Scotty saying, "I quit!" Scott McClellen is out as press secretary. Anyone want the job?

My old editorial teacher, Walter Spearman, called this kind of thing a "round-up." I call it lazy.

There's more . . .

Race Baiting Robin Hayes

"China is much more of a threat than an opportunity right now. You can never be tough enough on the Chinese." —Hayes

I'm sure that a consultant told him that his district wants to hear tough talk on trade, but this is just silly. Especially coming from a guy who five months ago was busy lashing China with a wet noodle.
