Do we want a 'Jeopardy Contestant' for President?? Maybe that's not such a bad thing...
Just over four years ago, an intrepid reporter caused a minor shitstorm when he had the audacity to question candidate Bush's knowledge of foreign leaders of nations in global "hot spots." Here is some of the exchange:


Hiller: "Can you name the general who is in charge of Pakistan?"
Bush: "Wait, wait, is this 50 questions?"
Hiller: "No, it's four questions of four leaders in four hot spots."


The reseponse from the Bush campaign?

Karen Hughes: "The person who is running for president is seeking to be the leader of the free world, not a Jeopardy contestant."

The indignant Bush we saw in the debate on Thursday is nothing new. Its just that the administration and the handlers have done a fine job of hiding this petulance.

Perhaps if we had more of a Jeopardy contestant in the Oval Office on September 11, we might have better managed our subsequent relations with Pakistan...

And who the hell ever heard of "50 questions"? It's "20 questions" and he clearly doesn't know how to play the game. The levels of idiocy are daunting.
