George W. Bush: The Decorous War Criminal

 Fashion Statement bush-jacket

Not resting on his laurels from making the Associated Press a Washington punchline, Ron Fournier seems committed to dragging the National Journal down too. Sensing the change in the seasons, Fournier felt compelled to mark Bush Library Week with a thoughtful wad of pap entitled ‘Go Ahead, Admit It: George W. Bush Is a Good Man’

For proof, look no further than the Dignity of the Office dress code Bush strictly enforced:

“The same sense of dignity compelled Bush to forbid his staff to wear blue jeans in the White House. Male aides were required to wear jackets and ties in the Oval Office.

This is a very tired old lie, exploded moments after former Bush Chief of Staff Andy Card made the claim in 2009 as part of an attack on those lax Obama staffers.  It has had a vigorous half life among idiots, but Fournier seems determined to strike at the National Journal’s reputation too.

He is everything awful about Washington:

“Fournier wants you people to remember that politeness is always measured by the thank you notes that a person sends, not the people that one indiscriminately bombs without provocation.”

He’s an old hand at this, having offered Karl Rove solace and advice in his difficult work faking up the Pat Tillman death narrative.
