the bastard was just reading a new column by peggy noonan. basically, noonan does a little retrospectus on the hurricane and 9/11 but she brought up the above phrase which i will put into context:
"George W. Bush still enjoys a bright spot in terms of his foes. Liberal politicians continue to respond to the calamity with delighted anguish. Their critiques are attacks and their attacks are opportunistic. Hillary Clinton, Ted Kennedy and Nancy Pelosi have come across as pols coolly using the suffering of others to club the opposition. As for liberal pundits, some of them have taken on the ways of mere party operatives: Every event exists to be used. Frank Rich, Paul Krugman: if they were dead they'd be spinning in their graves."
she goes on to do the analysis which remarks on how this is the administrations first big black eye, and it is. i think of what the mofo said while we were hashing it out last week, before the topic switched to the merits of the 70's incarnation of KISS. mo said, and i'm paraphrasing, "now don't get me wrong, i think the blame in this runs from the president all the way down but, i would never say he deserves the beating he's taking in the media right now. it's not all on him" the bastard tends to disagree with the mofo on the finer points but, i agree that he doesn't deserve the opportunistic beating he's getting now. for me it just reveals the slant in media today. but, what the hell do i know.
