George Bush, reading The Pet Goat
Anyone who worked for this guy certainly understands incompetence
I don't have enough fingers to count all the different kinds of funny in this story:
Matthew Dowd, a chief strategist for George W. Bush's reelection, slammed CPAC (scheduled to kick off in mid-March) for inviting the one-time vice presidential candidate to the popular conference, while passing over New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R).

"CPAC, to me, has totally diminished its credibility as an organization,” Dowd said. “And you invite Sarah Palin, who wasn’t competent enough to keep a Fox News contract? But she’s invited to a CPAC meeting?”

Of course, if you've been an adviser to George Dubya, you are perhaps uniquely qualified to spot incompetence from your house. And we can all agree that the half-term governor, who could not even handle an interview with Katie Couric—Katie freakin' Couric, ladies and gentlemen—is certainly incompetent. But Fox's decision to pay her a whopping $15.85 per word does not exactly speak to Fox's competence either. And then, lest we forget, there's the convention itself, where the universal incompetence of the conservative movement will be suited up and on full display later this month.

Best part of all? Pretty sure Matthew Dowd was serious when he said that.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
