    I think the best a president can do is use his 'celebrity' to make things 'better'.  He is no more effective than Harry Connick Jr. on the ground.  (Well, HCJr. is probably MORE effective)

    My point is that if Clinton is going to jet around with Bush41 to raise money, then good for him.  And good for Bush41, no matter what he spews about his little boy.  They are more effective than the actual president.  They aren't spinning, they aren't holding up rescue and relief for photo ops.

    The president has been reduced to a morale booster, and what better boost than seeing your commander-and-chimp eating cake and strumming a guitar while people drown.

    Cheers to Clinton and Bush41 for using their celebrity to raise money for disaster victims.

    Jeers to Senator McCain for actually eating that damn cake with Bush after a state of emergency had been called.  Should have sent him home.

Jeers for Dog-man for playing footsy with our torturer in chief. Cheers for Jesse Jackson and many like him who are doing the same thing under the radar and without blood on their hands.

        It's all about him, as well. He is a publicity whore and sticks his nose where it doesn't freakin' belong.
