Speaking of people who delude themselves; Do you have any idea how many books and articles there are that hail our President's Genius? It goes from David Frum's "The Right Man: The Surprise Presidency of George W. Bush" to The Leadership Genius of George W. Bush: 10 Common Sense Lessons from the Commander-in-Chief by James W. Ware & Carolyn B. Thompson. It gets better with blowhards like Michael Barone, of US News and World Report & The McLaughlin Group, heaping praise on Dubya for "framing the issues". Timothy Noah of Slate documented this whole Bush 'genius' phenominon and the essential compromising of conservatives and their ideals.

I have no idea how anyone in their right mind can even put genius and President Bush in the same sentence when the idiots in the White House are trying to pass this crap off as serious!

White House: Tape shows Iraq-al-Qaida link
- By Associated Press

Feb. 12, 2003 | Washington -- The Bush administration believes a new tape purportedly of Osama bin Laden, aired by the Al-Jazeera satellite television station, is clear evidence that there is a link between al-Qaida and Saddam Hussein.

White House spokesman [and stupid f%$#king asshole] Ari Fleischer said Wednesday the audiotape of the al-Qaida leader confirms the terror network's "linking up" with the Iraqi regime. U.S. counterterrorism experts say they believe the voice on the tape is that of the elusive bin Laden, though [that blithering idiot Ari] Fleischer said the proof is not yet considered conclusive.

Senator John McCain said the tape, aired Tuesday, proves that bin Laden and Saddam will do anything to destroy the West. "The two of them together can make a very potent recipe," McCain said on NBC's "Today" show.

But he cautioned that he's not sure if the tape shows a definite al-Qaida link to Iraq.[emphasis mine]

The voice on the tape urges Iraqis to stage suicide attacks and lure American troops into bloody urban battles to inflict "big casualties."

[that stupid fucking shithead Ari] Fleischer dismissed critics who've noted the bin Laden voice backs the Iraqi people, not Saddam Hussein. "The world cannot afford to be in denial," [arrogant son-of-a-bitch Ari] Fleischer said.

Sometimes I get the feeling that if our President were to take a dump and smear his own feces on a canvas, and had it displayed in the Museum of Modern Art, a cadre of conservatives would all rush to hail the President for his incredible "artistic vision". Without a doubt someone on the right would follow that act up with a book entitled "The Modern Art Genius of George W. Bush". It's almost like the Emperor has no clothes after the Emperor has been revealed as naked, except a bunch of his loyal followers keep asserting "No, it's a nude colored bodysuit!! He wants you to misunderestimate his clothing!!". For chrissakes get over it, there were people asserting after Bush got elected that intelligence is overrated as a characteristic for the Presidency. Now he's a fucking genuis.

As usual Conason's journal on Salon is on point today, on the same subject. Not the President shitting on a canvas, mind you, but rather the sheer ridiculous attempt to link Al Qaeda and Saddam after Osama called for Saddam's overthrow. I'll say it till I die; see what you what to see, hear what you want to hear, believe what you want to believe......

As for Fleisher, I have but one question - is there any way we can kick this stupid arrogant asshole out of 'The Tribe'? [He's a Heeb, I'm a Heeb] That guy is such a weasel he makes me actually consider the thought about converting. Hell, you have to listen to Fleisher more than Bush, which may explain my animosity towards the weasel, I'll be just as happy to see him go as I will be to see Bush go when he has to leave office. Please please please let that very day come sooner rather than later.
