So This Is What It's Like To Have A Doofus On The Other Side In Charge

You know, somehow, during all those years of the Bush presidency, through all the foibles and goofs and live bloopers, it was nice to see that he never lost his cool. Still, lots of people poked fun at him. This guy calls him an "idoit" - yes, you read that right:

Bush always held his composure, and never let it get to him. Just watch the cocky look in his eye at the end of the video: You can almost hear him thinking, "Nyah nyah, you missed me!"

Obama, though, strikes me as something more severe than a country bumpkin. He was presented to the world through the slick party machine as a smooth talker, a profound thinker, a savant. Oh, how the mighty have fallen.

Now even his teleprompter is turning against him.

In Case This Blog is Your Only View Out From Under a Rock...'ll be delighted to hear that my wife has given birth to our fifth* child.

(Perhaps my title isn't fair; I know that many of my readers are separated from us by distance and non-Facebookiness.)

Our son - yes, our SON, if you can believe it - took his first breath at 8:25 AM on Feb 27. He was 9 lb 9 oz, and 22 inches long. His name is Benedict Robert Joachim Kautz. Mom and baby are home and all is well, aside from a cold bug circling through our home.
The girls are enthralled and want to keep poking him.
