Last night’s Daily Show, a rerun from a few weeks back, contained a Bush quote from September 23 that I missed at the time. He’s in Texas with Chertoff, discussing Hurricane Rita:
The thing I’m gonna do is, observe the relationship between the state and local government…I’m gonna watch that relationship, it’s an important relationship and I need to understand how it works better.
Did I mention he said this in Texas? Where, as Jon Stewart of course pointed out, he was once governor?
My wife and I were discussing this, trying to think of a single Democratic presidential candidate who was as obviously–what’s the word I want?–stupid as George W. Bush, and we just couldn’t. I have disagreed strongly with plenty of Democratic candidates, but I can’t think of one as predictably cringeworthy as GWB.
