I read this quote and laughed:
"This president has a real pattern of defying conventional wisdom," says Mark McKinnon, media adviser for Bush's presidential campaigns.
If by 'defying conventional wisdom' he actually means 'defying wisdom', then yes... yes, he does. Article was in regards to Bush's 6th year in office; typically the 6th year is when shit goes down, and not for the better.
May this year be no different for Bush, but may we all be spared from the consequences of his over-awing stupidity.
