At least he’s got a sense of humor…

When I first read this in Harper’s, I could only think “Was he high?”

I must admit it’s pretty funny, but a tad inappropriate, considering.

I’ve really been mulling this over (being both a vet and a believer that there are and were WMD’s somewhere over that way). I watched the video of the event (linked to in the other post), and here’s my take, fwiw:

1. My initial repulsion to the jokes was mostly based on a fear of how the media and the Kerry campaign would spin the topic. So much has been made out of “Bush Lied”, etc, that I couldn’t believe that the president’s advisors would let him get away with such a huge public affairs gaffe.
2. After a little while to reflect, I’m willing to accept the jokes as funny (like Cynthia mentioned), and as well intentioned as could be. GW’s not slick; it costs him with the media, but endears him to the public.

Dammit! I searched this time to make sure it hadn’t been posted. I am always behind the loop, sorry.

I have to admit it’s a pretty ballsy move, which I admire.
