Condi and Dick Are Shy
Dubya's two favorite people don't want to appear on the news talk shows. With approval ratings so high, I can't imagine why.
THE HARDEST TO GET
Leading vote-getter: Vice President Dick Cheney. “He doesn’t give a s***. He’s checked out,” said one respondent. “I don’t know what he does all day,” said another.
DOESN’T MAKE THE NEWS THEY PROBABLY SHOULD
Leading vote-getter: Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice “never says anything.” “Everybody got really tired of the spin.”
"She’s under the rug in the living room," said an anonymous source. Too bad. I love to hear Condi's latest spin on the "Bin Ladin Determined to Strike in US" PDB.
Former Bush administration Douglas Feith foolishly appears on The Daily Show. Jon Stewarts asks Feith who was responsible for post-war Iraq. Feith didn't answer that question. Feith was in charge of post-war planning.
It was also his office that was in charge of post-war planning, and rejected the product of months of work by dozens of Iraqi exiles and Mideast experts in the State Department and the Central Intelligence Agency who anticipated many of the problems that have wrong-footed the occupation.
This is why current administration officials are laying low.
