Low-Functioning Pinheads?

On the second episode of Bill Moyers Journal, Jon Stewart said something interesting:

There is I used to have a real disconnect, I think, with the administration, I couldn't figure out what was going on. I think it's suddenly become clear to me. They would rather us believe them to be wildly incompetent and inarticulate than to let us know anything about how they operate. And so, they do Constitutionally-mandated things most of the time, but they don't — they fulfill the letter of their obligation to checks and balances, but not the intent.

For instance, Alberto Gonzales, and you've been watching the hearings. He is either a perjurer, or a low-functioning pinhead. And he allowed himself to be portrayed in those hearings as a low-functioning pinhead, rather than give the Congressional Committee charged with oversight, any information as to his decision-making process at the Department of Justice.
To an extent, I think Stewart is right. I don't think Gonzales is quite as low-functioning as he appeared during his testimony last week. He almost certainly was lying at least some of the 60+ times he said he didn't remember something.

But I've also heard leaked reports that he's such an idiot that he couldn't keep his story straight even in the two months of practice sessions leading up to his appearing before the Senate. That his advisors despaired of how he would come off because he just doesn't really know what the hell is going on most of the time.

So, I have to say I see it more like this: Members of the Bush regime are low-functioning pinheads who are willing to appear even lower functioning than they actually are rather than give any information to Congress or the people. But they think they're doing what Jon Stewart thinks they're doing. They think they're just pretending to be low-functioning pinheads, because they don't realize that even low-functioning pinheads can act stupider than they really are.

ebook in it or something. I feel that you
just can do with a few % to force the message house a bit, however instead of that, this is great blog. An excellent read. I will certainly be back.
