Wild-eyed chest thumper or whining ranter?

It really is a shame that Fearless Leader was born to multi-millionaires with tremendous political connections. His special blend of inexplicable arrogance and utter worthlessness would've made him the perfect choice for despotic night manager of a Pump 'n Munch. If only he were pitching a fit somewhere in a West Texas convenience store and screaming " I'M the hot dog rotisserie guy!" in a paper hat....

Georgie Anne Geyer writes today in the Dallas Morning News about President Bush’s strange behavior during a recent meeting with “[f]riends of his from Texas.”

But by all reports, President Bush is more convinced than ever of his righteousness. Friends of his from Texas were shocked recently to find him nearly wild-eyed, thumping himself on the chest three times while he repeated "I am the president!" He also made it clear he was setting Iraq up so his successor could not get out of “our country’s destiny.”

This is a new, and even more disturbing, account of the meeting. It's pretty sad when the toned-down version of the story already makes you sound like a lunatic. Not to mention the eagerness of current GOP candidates to both distance themselves from the man while marrying themselves to his disastrous policies.
