Are They Stupid or do They Just Think We Are?

At least they're consistent...

George Bush, September 1, 2005: "I don't think anyone anticipated the breach of the levees."

Condi Rice: "Nobody could have predicted that hijackers would fly those planes into buildings."

As for the question in the heading of this entry, they have 59,000,000 reasons to believe that we are that stupid.

Read Generick for a more lengthy and thoughtful post on this subject.

Another update:
I just watched the clip and I'm left wondering why, when Bush opened up his skull and revealed it to be empty, why didn't Diane Sawyer call him on that? Is she as ignorant as the President? How can she not say, "hold on there, cowboy, did you just say 'nobody anticipated the breech of the levees?' Are you joking?"

Also, four years ago, Dick Cheney condescendingly derided gasoline conservation as a nice personal virtue but dismissed it as viable strategy for approaching and staving off the coming energy crisis. Now, when the crisis is here, Bushie thinks conservation is a good idea.

Good god, but I hate these people.
