Saturday Thought Experiments

What. If. Bush. Had. Done. These. Things?

Seriously. Close your eyes. Imagine that in the span of just a few weeks, George W. Bush had cracked a joke about the physically handicapped, bumped his head while boarding Marine One, thanked himself for his own hospitality because that's what the teleprompter said, ordered defense officials to conceal the budget process from public scrutiny, grandstanded about bonus payments by AIG only to have it revealed that he had, himself, accepted six figures from AIG, tried to walk through a window, and gifted the British Prime Minister with DVDs that are incompatible with UK DVD players.

I think it's beyond dispute that Maureen Dowd would be hosting an orgy in the New York Times editorial office.
