‘Jacking the Peeps

pantsonfireBecause Machiavelli’s The Prince is a rather short book, perhaps George W. Bush tried to tackle it. He might’ve come across dicta on how to manipulate the great unwashed, and applied it to his 2004 reelection campaign.

was pushed to raise the security alert on the eve of President Bush’s re-election, something he saw as politically motivated and worth resigning over.

He actually said this in 2005, and most of us just don’t seem to care that we’ve been duped by the Reeking Liars of the Republican Party™.
