Public Servant

Caught just a couple minutes of Bushy's "press con'frinse" this morning, including what Waingroh believes to be a glimpse of the true mindset of the Prez when it comes to speeches & the press. When a journalist asked him a two-part question, Drinky got all flustered: "Which question do you want me to answer? Look, it's hot out here (angry snicker), and you have a respectful president up here. Just ask one question, ok?"

As Steve Martin would say, well EXCUUUUUUUUUuuuuuuuuuuuUUUUUUSE MEE!! I forgot how much of an HONOR it was that Drinky can BLESS us with his mere presence so that we, the small insignificant masses called the American people, should be so GRATEFUL for the rare opportunity to pester our exalted president-lord for a few questions about the Empire's crusade in Iraq. Off the cuff and under-the-spot comments like the one above show you so much more about a person's actual state of mind than prepared speeches and practiced answers. It's clear Bush feels that letting the people know what's going on in the administration is a hassle, an obligation, a waste of time, and he resents the press for meddling in his affairs. I know Drinky McDumbass has trouble with the second grade reading level, but someone should tell him that "public servant" doesn't mean "the public is your servant".
