Who's holding the cards now?

Who can forget ex-Chief of Staff Andrew Card whispering in his boss' ear at 9:05 a.m. Sept. 11, 2001, what he later told the New York Times was, "A second plane hit the other tower, and America's under attack."
George Bush sat with his usual smirk, listening to third graders read "The Pet Goat" and chatting with them 10 or 15 minutes more. Card let Bush enjoy himself, not even curious who was attacking America. Any other dimwit might think it a good idea to get America's bull's eye away from the kids, but not Card.

So, when University of Massachusetts faculty and grads protested an honorary degree for Card at commencement yesterday, maybe they were forgetting Card is a historic figure -- either the most incompetent chief of staff in U.S. history or one who helped stage the biggest false-flag attack in world history.

Maybe "28 percent" Bush will find a similar reception when New Jersey Republicans welcome him at 3:45 p.m. Wednesday at the Exposition Center in Edison. His own party seems reluctant to come. Most Monmouth County Republicans aren't willing to say if they're going, although Assemblywoman Jennifer Beck says "no thanks" to the invite. Yesterday, most of Ocean County's GOP said they, too, won't be going. Perhaps they suspect another chorus of boos and catcalls there.
