Stockholm Syndrome

CNN definitely needs to pull Ed Henry off the White House beat as he has completely lost the thread of what he is supposed to be doing as a reporter.

Atrios notes that Ed Henry Can’t Stop Fluffing with a link to Ed’s CNN Political Ticker report on the vital question of the Bush family Christmas presents with this absurd sentence: “It’s hard to imagine a tough guy from Texas shopping for a pocketbook, but President Bush gave his wife a new purse and a silver tray for Christmas, according to an aide to First Lady Laura Bush.”

Why wouldn’t the Connecticut-born scion of a wealthy New England family who was educated at prep schools and universities in Massachusetts and Connecticut buy a purse. A hint, Ed: tough guys don’t wear spandex, and they aren’t afraid of horses.

Even more egregious is Ed’s opinion piece, With one year to go, Bush’s legacy a mixed bag. Sorry Ed, but everything the guy has touched is a disaster. The only thing he has accomplished in the last seven years is to fool enough of the people to get elected. Medicare Plan D isn’t an accomplishment unless you are a lobbyists for a major pharmaceutical company.

His legacy will be as the worst President in American history. He has managed to screw up everything he has even looked at: the economy, foreign affairs, the military, trade…everything. Most of those who make the list of bad Presidents limited themselves to just one area, not every facet of the Federal government.

Nixon went to China. Bush can’t even remember foreign leaders names while he is meeting with them.

I’m such a nasty person, Michael, I have said aloud that the reason he keeps slapping the Presidential seal all over and wears costumes with his name on them is so he can remember who he is and what he is supposed to be doing.

It doesn’t seem to work, Bryan. He’s still clueless even when you give him carefully printed clues.

4 Michael { 12.27.07 at 1:50 am }

I don’t think he’d recognize a clue if it were labeled in big letters: HERE IS A CLUE.

That’s why he never goes anywhere without his earphone, so someone can tell him how to react when told that planes are flying into buildings – unlike the last time when he was stunned.

i dont think any bush has been in a store in a 100 years. some lackey bought it for laura after he asked her what she wanted. probably jenna’s fiance.

i hope the purse contains chinese poisons

You know they didn’t pay retail, you don’t have to if you’re rich, but whatever it was, it was almost certainly made in China.
