Apart from information our Wonderful President Feelgood couldn't
control, i.e the grunt's Iraq news op asking Rummy why THEY
had to armor their vehicles from local junkyards, a great year is only
going to get better under this military genius we have for a Commander
Naturally Bush accepts no responsibility whatsoever ---telling the
Press, He would have asked Rummy the same question himself.
Miraculously, within days orders went out to armor fabricators reversing
a production policy which envisioned no armor orders until May, 2005.
Nice to have a fully-conscious Commander-in Chief at the helm.

GEORGE'S COZY COCOON
George W likes to live in his own world. In fact, "being Bush" seems
like a joyful, almost dreamlike experience. Reality, for example, never
intrudes into his consciousness. And his lies, even his biggest
whoppers, seem most sincerely to be believed by him – I have no doubt
that he thinks he served in the National Guard, for example.
For his second term, George is drawing his world even tighter, moving
swiftly to eliminate advisors and officials who might tell him things he
doesn't want to hear, further shielding him from bothersome realities in
Colin Powell was quickly ushered out the door. Even though he had
dutifully (and unwittingly) lied for Bush about those non-existent
weapons of mass destruction, Powell was always questioning the blind
rush into the war, so George has now plucked this irritant from his
administration. Condi Rice, his worshipful national security advisor,
has been moved into Powell's chair, and Bush can certainly trust that
she won't disturb his consciousness with anything that goes against his
Likewise, his longtime legal lackey, Al Gonzales, has been dispatched to
head the justice department, where he can grind out memos to rationalize
and legalize any little ol' thing that strikes George's noggin. Al, you
might remember, is the guy who wrote the White House memo saying that
torturing Iraqi prisoners was legally okey-dokey.
Then there's the CIA, which kept sending intelligence reports to the
White House warning that the Iraqi invasion and occupation would have
messy consequences. George didn't like to hear that, so now he's put
political hack Porter Goss at the CIA helm. Goss is purging top agents
who have disagreed with Bush's disastrous policies – and he has warned
all CIA employees that their job is to "support the administration and
its policies in our work."
There. Don't you feel better knowing that George won't be bothered by
any unwanted advice or unpleasant reports?
