Insane Man

Consider this a companion piece to yesterday's post. Our country is being run by two extremely well-connected, stubborn, certifiably insane men.

Here's the meaty quote from a scary story about how Nancy Pelosi was not consulted by Bush on his "new" Iraq War "strategy":
"He's tried this two times — it's failed twice," the California Democrat said. "I asked him at the White House, 'Mr. President, why do you think this time it's going to work?' And he said, 'Because I told them it had to.' "

Asked if the president had elaborated, she added that he simply said, " 'I told them that they had to.' That was the end of it. That's the way it is."

The truth is that the Iraqi's hate us for bringing chaos to their world, and the retaliation must have inside info since they've just killed:
2 Colonels
1 Lieutenant Colonel
1 Major
1 Captain
2 Command Sergeant Majors
1 First Sergeant
1 Sergeant First Class
2 Staff Sergeants
1 Corporal

All in one helicopter January 20th.

Ah, victory.

And this final nugget regarding Bush's very late explanation to House Speaker Pelosi:
Apparently, Pelosi's final come-back to the president was the following:

PELOSI: He's tried this two times — it's failed twice. I asked him at the White House, 'Mr. President, why do you think this time it's going to work?'

BUSH: Because I told them it had to.

PELOSI: Why didn't you tell them that the other two times?

Because he's craaaaaaaaa-zy.

He can't be crazy -- he's the decision maker! And look at all the positive things his decisions have produced... uh... well... He's still the decision maker, damn it!
