Time for Pitchforks and Torches

Sounds like we all have to go run out and buy the new Ron Suskind book The One Percent Doctrine, about which Publisher's Weekly sums up, "In this troubling portrait of the war on terror, America's intelligence agencies confront not just al-Qaeda but the Bush administration's politicized incompetence." According to the Washington Post review, "The book's opening anecdote tells of an unnamed CIA briefer who flew to Bush's Texas ranch during the scary summer of 2001, amid a flurry of reports of a pending al-Qaeda attack, to call the president's attention personally to the now-famous Aug. 6, 2001, memo titled 'Bin Ladin Determined to Strike in US.' Bush reportedly heard the briefer out and replied: 'All right. You've covered your ass, now.'"

Now if we could only kick his. If he were merely an idiot I might not be so angry.
