Dancing in the dark
I can't wait to see what's next. <snip>

The president called on Americans to drive less, and told White House staff members to turn off their computers at night, turn down the air-conditioning, form carpools and take the bus.

At the same time, he set a fine example by wasting gazillions of gallons of fuel with all the planes and Secret Service vans and press motorcades and police escorts that follow him around every time he goes on one of his inane photo-ops from the Colorado bunker to what's left of the Mississippi Delta and the Bayou. He did his part by knocking off a few cars from his motorcade on his seventh trip to the gulf Tuesday but if residents had hoped he'd bring them some water, they went thirsty. <snip>

Karen Hughes, the Bush nanny who knows nothing about the Muslim world and yet is charged with selling the U.S. to it, wasted even more fuel this week flying to Saudi Arabia to tell women in black abayas how much she likes driving even though they can't. <snip>

6. Hell, I can't even convince American women that other women
might make good presidents. There are women in the US that wouldn't be caught dead working outside their homes or churches. And they think they can change a thousand years of culture with a few "words of wisdom" by KH? They are fools.
