Bob Novak and His Incredibly Funny Columnposted by Bill Arnett @ 1:09 PM Permalink
In my opinion Bob Novak is an absolute dirtbag and nothing more than a propaganda puppet for the bush/cheney maladministration, but every once in awhile he writes a column that simply cracks me up. It isn't that he is deliberately trying to be funny, but when he writes so seriously of the doom-and-gloom scenarios facing the most politically corrupt party on the face of the earth, the GOP, the irony is too rich to be ignored.
In today's column novak details whose ox is being gored and why bush has become the most isolated president in history:
…Last week, as Alberto Gonzales came under withering Democratic fire, there were no public GOP declarations of support amid private predictions of the attorney general's demise.…Republican leaders in Congress (asking not to be quoted by name) early last week predicted Gonzales would fall because the Justice Department botched firing eight U.S. attorneys.…Republicans in Congress do not trust Bush to protect them.…That alone is sufficient reason to withhold statements of support for Gonzales, when such a gesture could be quickly followed by his resignation under pressure.…The word most often used by Republicans in describing…the Justice Department under Gonzales is "incompetent." [That's what makes him such a good match for bush, isn't it? Bill]…The saving grace that some Republicans find in the dispute over U.S. attorneys is that, at least temporarily, it blurs debate over an unpopular war…The I-word (incompetence) is used by Republicans in describing the Bush administration generally.…the addition of extraordinary public servants Josh Bolten, Tony Snow and Rob Portman has not changed the image of incompetence…Many more say today's problems by the administration derive from yesterday's mistakes, whose impact persists.…this is just the governing style of Bush.…Bush is alone.Read the linked article to fully appreciate Republicans once again eating their young and savaging their own president. But I have to say that novak is correct in this one sense:
There is no one in American that needs or deserves to be isolated than bush. Preferably freeze dried and hermetically sealed for the world's protection.
