So, in other words, the very essence of this administration.

Except for the overrefined part, and they're hardly even effeminate enough. They could really use some femininity.

Yeah, it's not like Bush has more women (or minorities, for that matter) in his cabinet than any other president or anything...

Gee. That just undoes every underlying point to be made in Mrs S's statement, then!

What they don’t like about him is that he is common sense, that he is Middle America.” Limbaugh suggest that Bush critics are frustrated the the President “outsmarts ‘em.” Rove argued Bush is far more intelligent than people give him credit for, and is “one of the best-read people I’ve ever met” whose “passion is history.”


so we're channeling Spiro Agnew, then, Mr. Rove?

makes sense -- Bush's approval ratings are really only comparable to Nixon.

They're certainly "effete," but hardly "intellectual." Their actual "effete intellectuals," the neo-cons, got unceremoniously booted out a few years back after the war they had wanted, at least since 1998, backfired.
