Cold and Snappish Sounds Refreshing

Newsweek’s How Bush Blew it is only the latest report that Bush’s public distant, giggly, good-buddy facade covers a cold, distant, shoot-the-messenger defensiveness.

Makes me wonder what it would take to get one of these rumored tirades recorded and distributed around the internets.

Watching the authentic, backstage Bush go off, unprotected by co-dependent Telephone Sanitizers, would be a refreshing change.

Update: Good stuff in Dan Froomkin’s Now They Tell Us. One-stop read on the political impact of Katrina.
