I congratulate the president on his snark.

No, really. This time, I mean it. W may be many, many bad things, but the man occasionally drops a line of snark that is almost fictional-television character-worthy. Take the line from today’s press conference (as reported by Elisabeth Bumiller in the current Supreme Court story): “Mr. Bush, who has kept information about his selection process within a small circle of top aides, became testy when a reporter said that ‘we understand you are now close to a decision’ on a nominee.
“‘Well, thank you for telling me where I am in the process,’ Mr. Bush replied. ‘I appreciate that.'”

Uh-oh, did someone wake up on the wrong side of the imperial bed this morning? Getting cranky in your old age (which raises another question: does being “born again” add years to your life? Is he actually more like 30?)? Testy? Worried you might have to make good on the threat to fire your brain?

In other news, I have Harry Potter 6 in process. Had to take a detour out of reading yesterday. More on that… some other time.

    Well, apparently he wasn’t awake enough to say “Yes, we’re ready today,” like anyone with a brain would have…

    I don’t know that it’s a question of him being awake — does he still take multiple naps during the day, or has he had to give those up? — but more part of the “like anyone with a brain” problem.

    I don’t know about that, but wasn’t somebody famous for saying, “There’s another sucker born again every minute”? 😎
