Awesome, dude


This morning, Bush attended the National Prayer Breakfast. This, I guess, is what Bush looks like when he prays.


Also in attendance: Larry Craig. Also Holy Joe Lieberman, and John McCain, who had time for this but not to vote on the economic stimulus package. What is McCain praying for?


I CAN THINK OF ANOTHER PRESIDENTIAL WORD: “Ward, thanks for your remarks. Those were awesome. I guess that’s a presidential word.”

“The people in this room come from many different walks of faith. Yet we share one clear conviction: We believe that the Almighty hears our prayers -- and answers those who seek Him. That’s what we believe; otherwise, why come?” For the pancakes. The pancakes are awesome.

Later in the morning, Bush held an event to complain that the Senate wasn’t confirming his nominees fast enough.

IN OTHER WORD. NOT IN OTHER WORDS, MIND YOU. IN OTHER WORD. “In other word, this isn’t the first time he’s gone through a confirmation process.”

“Yet the Senate has not acted on their nominations. This delay is irresponsible. It undermines the cause of justice.” And that violates the separation of powers. See, it’s the job of the executive branch to undermine the cause of justice.
