Joe Klein must be drinking while writing, no one could be this stupid:

“When Bush came to office–installed by the Supreme Court after receiving fewer votes than Al Gore–I speculated that the new President would have to govern in a bipartisan manner to be successful. He chose the opposite path, and his hyper-partisanship has proved to be a travesty of governance and a comprehensive failure. I’ve tried to be respectful of the man and the office, but the three defining sins of the Bush Administration–arrogance, incompetence, cynicism–are congenital: they’re part of his personality. They’re not likely to change. And it is increasingly difficult to imagine yet another two years of slow bleed with a leader so clearly unfit to lead.”

How about unfit to write?

Er, excuse the brother, but “bi-partisan manner”? Are you drinking?

No President of one party ever tried harder to get along with the other than Bush – no one. Didn’t happen because Democrats from the beginning wanted no part of it.

It’s Democrats, not Bush, who have been accusing, stalling, filibustering, leaking secrets to the media, visiting enemies abroad to tell them our war plans. All for the same “Stuck on Stupid” reason you cite which betrays your reasoning:

“Bush stole the 2000 election”.

Cripes mate, really, get over it, Gore lost.

So put down the bottle, back away from the keyboard and make a meeting.
