MODO CAPTIONED

This is hilarious.

QUOTE FOR THE DAY: “Bush’s White House is a conundrum, a bastion of telegenic idealism and deep cynicism. The President has proposed vast, transformational policies x97 the remaking of the Middle East, of Social Security, of the federal bureaucracy. But he has done so in a haphazard way, with little attention to detail or consequences. There are grand pronouncements and, yes, crusades, punctuated with marching words like evil and moral and freedom. Beneath, though, is the cynical assumption that the public doesn’t care about the detailsx97that results don’t matter, corners can be cut and special favors bestowed.” – Joe Klein, insightfully pinpointing the contradiction at the heart of this presidency. Nowhere was this contradiction more brutally exposed than during the Iraq war.
