President Bush: Burning the Midnight Oil
Today's Washington Post article by Peter Baker and Jim VandeHei, about the White House political strategy for 2006, contains this gem:
Bush, who had plenty to be morose about through the fall, responded with vigor
as well. Instead of heading immediately to bed after the Oval Office address, as
he usually does, he stuck around to chew through themes for his upcoming State
of the Union address, another high-ranking administration official said.
Talk about the soft bigotry of low expectations.
