It is a source of constant amazement to this Beast that, in order to ensure that the object on the sidewalk is not dog poo, some people will pick it up, feel it, smell it, even taste it – all to ensure they do not step in it.
The President has learned this lesson too. What has cooperation with the slavering partisans of the new Democratic congress earned him? He furnishes emails, he appoints special prosecutors, he makes deals – and for what? To stay out of the poop?
Enough is enough. Perhaps the American people knew that the votes they cast last November were for unending fabricative “oversight” fishing expeditions and not to advance the interests of the Nation. Perhaps they thought that the new congress they had elected might do more than pass carefully triangulated nonbinding resolutions. Perhaps they thought something real might be accomplished.
They were wrong.
Put on the gloves, President Bush. Godspeed.
