As Pacino would say, you f***ing child...

Our president (or at least his press secretary) is dealing with Congress like Pee-Wee Herman, and I'd have preferred it if I meant whacking it in a theater, but I meant like in the TV show...

In their letter to George W. Bush today, Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi laid out -- albeit briefly -- their plan for Iraq: "We believe the way forward is to begin the phased redeployment of our forces in the next four to six months, while shifting the principal mission of our forces there from combat to training, logistics, force protection and counter-terror."

The non-sequitur response from the White House? We're waiting for the Democrats to offer their plan for Iraq.

At this afternoon's press briefing, Tony Snow said that the president is willing to listen to what Reid and Pelosi have to say and that the White House will "welcome them to offer their suggestions."

For shit's sake, man, at least tell them that it's a shitty idea and they can go fuck themselves, at least you're dealing with them on an adult level, or at least a Cheney level. Sticking your fingers in your ears and going LALALALALALALALALA? What are you, six?

Between this, and the report that a change in strategy was deliberately delayed for political purposes, I'm guessing Bush has a burning desire to be hated by everyone.

Well, he's getting there.
