This Is Rich
by Nicholas Beaudrot of Electoral Math
My Spanish isn't perfect, but I'm fairly certain that the Chilean center-left newspaper La Tercera ran an article stating Bush's fear that the cancellation of the Dubai Ports deal would spark protests in the Middle East. This is the same George W. Bush who invaded a country in the region, right?
Elsewhere, David Brooks (Times Select required) is shocked -- shocked! -- to find pandering in our political discourse. Also, we're supposed to be surprised that politicians make statements that are technically true but highly misleading. Hmmm ... where have I heard that phrase before?

Oh, yeah - he said that it would "send a bad message." Maybe a tank sends a bad message, too. Maybe having Dick Cheney run his mouth sends a bad message. No wonder so many people in the world thinks the US if full of jokers.

I've heard all week from conservatives and liberals alike that Bush can't really affect much of what is happened on the ground in Iraq right now. If thats the case, the leader of the free world and commander of this thing can't affect what is going on right now, then how the hell could speech against the war or against the ports deal? Its ludicious.
