A History Buff???

Jesus, out of all of the ludicrous statements that have been puked out the vapid faces of the White House mouthpieces, this one just has to be at the top of the official Stupid-For-All-Time list. I was planning on going dark until after the holidays, but this one just plain forced me to break squelch.

Turns out that Baby Doc -- according to White House spokesliar Trent Duffy -- is a "history buff" whose vacation reading includes both the Patricia O'Toole study of post-presidential Teddy Roosevelt, When Trumpets Call, and Imperial Grunts, Robert Kaplan's account of the daily lives of US soldiers.

It would be laughable if it weren't so pathetic. We're supposed to swallow, without choking or laughing, a bald-faced statment that our own Baby Doc, who has never once given the slightest indication that he even has a passing acquaintance with the basic concepts of history, is all of a sudden a history buff??? And, to make it worse, that he is reading about Theodore Roosevelt, the very embodiment of Progressive Republican politics? Let's hope that Pickles will at least read some of the Roosevelt book to him. A "history buff" like Baby Doc ought to be able to absorb at least some of the lessons of the Progressive era and some of the ideals that Teddy stood for. Ha ha.

Give me a fucking break. My bullshit detector is on full red alert and yours ought to be as well. We are talking about someone whose last known reading material was a My Pet Goat, someone who can't even read a fucking daily newspaper, someone who has to have read to him even the single paragraph of the daily presidential briefing memo.

I can't believe what blatantly transparent lies the fuckers are still trying to cram down our throats, and the sad thing is that so many people are still willing to swallow their daily ration of White House shit.

What a load of crap! He won't even read his own articles of impeachment.

Lets just see if he blows the news interview about his reading... Like during the presidential debate where he told nobody to stop interupting him.

I can just see him trying to repeat the lines from the hidden mic about the books content!

Well at least now when I think of the president I can laugh instead of geting mad!


He reads, what a joke!

remember a few years ago when he started carrying some big book around like he was reading it? his poll numbers were down then, too.

It's probably called Teddy Roosevelt for Dummies. I, too, find it hard to believe that he is semi literate

This comes after much criticism referring to him as "Bubble Boy," including a Newsweek cover featuring him IN a big bubble. They're trying to muster up a less clueless image. Good luck with that, peops.

El Shrubbo del Estupido sees himself as a modern day Napoleon, but is in reality Genghis Can't.

His circle of fawning ass kissers will shield him from the nasty reality of this situation, however. I am certain he believes his word is Divine, as many of his wingnut worshippers believe.

I think her actual statement was "He has a histroy of drinking in the buff..." or something to that effect...
