every once in awhile, that brain-dead guy in the White House who neither I nor anyone I know voted for manages to surprise and shock me with one of his ridiculous comments. but this - what’s the phrase - takes the cake? actually it goes far beyond taking the cake… it grabs the cake and runs a marathon with it.
in answer to this question from an interview on May 13 with Politico.com and Yahoo online users, “you haven’t been golfing in recent years. Is that related to Iraq?” that guy who has access to the Doomsday Machine has the temerity to respond: “Yes. It really is. I don’t want some mom whose son may have recently died, to see the Commander in Chief playing golf. I feel I owe it to the families to be as — to be in solidarity as best as I can with them. And I think playing golf during a war just sends the wrong signal.”
there’s a lot more to this incredible interview and i highly recommend reading Keith Olbermann’s Special Comment from last nights Countdown, available here on the Huffington Post. Video clip there as well.
