Then I read this interesting article from the New Yorker, about Michael Gerson, who is G.W. Bush's speech writer, and thus the man who is responsible for most of those words that manage to emerge from the President's mouth relatively unscathed. Strangely, Gerson doesn't seem to think his job thankless. The article provides some insight into the actual author of those phrases which W. emits when he isn't blithering. Of course, Bush has an excuse for having been manipulated by the likes of Cheney and Rove. He's slow. But Gerson doesn't appear to be slow. I wonder what excuses he can offer for himself? Whatever they might be, I'm sure they'd be cleverly phrased.
Then, some other stuff happened which was less interesting. Now, no time for anything else. Stupid sun's coming up.
