George W. Bush: Vile Bastard

The death toll continues to climb in the tsunami disaster, and the response of President Caligula, sitting on his dead ass in Crawford, is, predicably, "Let them eat cake!"

White House spokesman Trent Duffy said the president was confident he could monitor events effectively without returning to Washington or making public statements in Crawford, where he spent part of the day clearing brush and bicycling. Explaining the about-face, a White House official said: "The president wanted to be fully briefed on our efforts. He didn't want to make a symbolic statement about 'We feel your pain.' "

Many Bush aides believe Clinton was too quick to head for the cameras to hold forth on tragedies with his trademark empathy. "Actions speak louder than words," a top Bush aide said, describing the president's view of his appropriate role.

Hell is waiting for you, George. But you don't really believe, do you? Your actions speak louder than words, after all.
