I'm sure he didn't mean it like that!
Of course, Kurtz works for the Post, an organ that still doesn't get it as far as what Bush is capable of. To wit:
PRESIDENT BUSH SENT the wrong message when he announced, in response to a reporter's question last week, that he has "no idea whether we'll find out" who disclosed the identity of CIA undercover operative Valerie Plame to columnist Robert D. Novak.
If the chief of a company like Enron said something similar to Mr. Bush's remarks about a Justice Department investigation, his words would be taken as a wink to those responsible that they won't be caught if they keep quiet. That, we trust, was not what Mr. Bush meant to convey. [...]
Hello! McFly! Hello!
Of course that was what Bush meant to convey. Are the editorialists at the Post really so naive as to think that Bush wouldn't do this? Why do they continue to give this asshole the benefit of the doubt when he has so frequently and consistently proven unworthy of it?
