And while we're talking about the President's scary certainty, let me also remind us that a while ago, Big Media Matt observed of our President's perfect judgement:
Bush has fired precisely no one for making mistakes. And why would anyone be? After all, Bush maintains that no mistakes were made, or at least none noteworthy enough for him to remember. Most of the errors that Bush won't acknowledge were caused by his decision to take advice from the vice president, the secretary of defense, and people on their staffs instead of listening to the sound advice provided by officers in the State Department and the CIA. Dick Cheney, of course, is still on the ticket for re-election, and the president's standard stump speech describes him as 'a man of great experience, sound judgment ... a man who can get the job done.' Cheney certainly is experienced, but if the president thinks his judgment has been sound, we can be sure that a second term will mean getting the job done by making the same mistakes over and over again. Donald Rumsfeld hasn't been fired. Instead, Bush says he's 'the best secretary of defense the United States has ever had.'
Remember, he couldn't think of any mistakes ...
