Holiday Reading: Results don't matter, it's all about the heart
If you can take it, try Bush's year-end press conference from Monday. The short version: I will tell you details of my plans that will be politically popular; Asking about the other details would be detrimental to the legislative process. Why do you in the press not understand that? Plus it's wrong to criticize the performance of leaders I have decided have good hearts, all evidence to the contrary (which I will not acknowledge), like Rumsfeld, Putin, and Musharraf. And, oh yeah, our vetting process for the most important jobs in the world is outstanding and also one really big secret we'll never talk about. It has a good heart, our vetting process, so it doesn't matter what kind of crap comes out of it, same as Rumsfeld.
