a tip of the hat to Molly Ivins

Screw the fact that everything you hear Bush say in this clip is a lie (the American People are not with him—they favor Congress—and the proposed timelines will not force extended tours or accelerated redeployments to Iraq—unless Bush orders that, of course), the image says everything you need to know about this presidency.

ABC (or it might have been CNN, sorry) actually voiced over this shot with “as Vice President Cheney stood behind a shrub.”

Yes, “hiding behind a bush,” would also have worked here, but would not have been as referential to the late Texas columnist.

But no VO is really necessary, is it? A picture is truly worth a thousand words.
