Bush’s iPod

I’m half-heartbroken to hear that there is now photodocumentary evidence that GWBush owns on iPod - in some ways he’s more like me than I’m comfortable with, apparently (a humorous take on his playlist is here.

Then again, his having an iPod explains a lot of things. For example, that blank look he gets when someone asks him a hard question. See, when you’re listening to books on tape (“The Pet Goat” on mp3?) it’s hard to pay attention to hard questions.

Furthermore it explains whatTenet told him about WMDs in Iraq:

iPod-GW: “Tenet! What’s the deal on WMD in Iraq?” Tenet: Dude, I told you there’s no WMD, what the fuck? [It’s official, not there] iPod-GW: WMD, slam dunk, gotcha!
