"Ross K. Baker, a political science professor at Rutgers University, said Bush retains the unique capacity to lead the nation through the commemoration of the 2001 attacks. "The speeches he's given have been meticulously crafted to avoid any obvious political message," he said. "But seen in an overall way, they reinforce in the mind of people his uniqueness as president and the fact that we're still in a dangerous situation, and in times of danger people inevitably rally behind the president."

I must have dropped 50 IQ points overnight. I thought everything Bush said was political. As for his uniqueness as President, would that be

uniquely incompetent?

uniquely no-really-elected?

uniquely hidebound by some manic-induced delusion of direct moral authority from God?

uniquely spending 4 hours a day exercising?

uniquely lacking in compassion?

uniquely hypocritical?

Who is this Ross K. Baker guy and how did he get a PhD?

Just asking.
